  2. Well it isn't a simple jerk-off fantasy, that's for sure. Though far from boring imo. And what's in the archive isn't the whole story.
  3. It's on Amazon as an e-book.
  4. Hello! So I've thought I'd do this to share some knowledge to you guys and to review this stuff for myself. I know that feet aren't exactly the part that you work out in the gym specifically, but they are kinda important in the everyday life. For ease of sourcing images, I'll be taking them off of Henry Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body, which is freely accessible over at http://www.bartleby.com/107/, it also contains further and deeper commentary and descriptions. After trying out the images, I think pure links are better, the pictures on the website seem to be either too small or too large. Notice: I'll be describing the anatomical 'normal', variations and exceptions are possible. If you're worried about something, ask your doctor/physiotherapist. Before we start, a short dictionary (if you don't understand something, feel free to ask!): Anterior/posterior - thing lies towards the front/back of the body. Your metatarsals lie in front of your tarsal bones, they are anterior in relation to them. They are more back than your phalanges, so they are posterior in relation to them. Medial/lateral - towards the midline of the body/away from it. Your third toe is medial in relation to the fifth/small toe, but lateral in relation to the big toe. Superior/inferior - lies upwards/downwards, in anatomy these are not used as indicators of quality (better/worse). Your torso is superior in relation to your legs, but inferior in relation to your head. Proximal/distal - closer to the middle of your body/further away. The wrist end of your forearm is distal, the elbow end is proximal. Origin/insertion - anatomically defined beginnings/ends of the muscles. Usually the origin is more proximal than the end. Bones: Since the muscles don't just float around under your skin, I think it's appropriate to actually start with the bones. There are 3 parts to the foot (from the back to the front): the tarsus, the metatarsus and the phalanges. Right foot from below: http://www.bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image269.gif Right foot from above: http://www.bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image268.gif There are 7 tarsal bones, calcaneus, talus, cuboid, navicular and 3 cuneiforms. Calcaneus is your heel. Talus is the bone that connects your foot to your lower leg, it sits on top and to the front of the calcaneus. Then you have the navicular, cuboid and 3 cuneiforms sitting in front, these basically form the top of two arches of the foot. Number of foot arches can vary from author to author, for now I'm okay with the number three, roughly like this: http://teachmeanatomy.info/wp-content/uploads/image5-713x1024.jpg There are 5 metatarsal bones, they connect the cuneiforms and cuboid bones with the phalanges. And finally we come to the phalanges, we have 14 of them (2 in the big toe, 3 in each of the rest). Note: There are also sesamoid bones, which are usually found in the lower limb, for more info: http://www.bartleby.com/107/67.html Joints: Connections between the bones. The amount of movement they allow depends on several factors, e.g. the ones between your skull bones are much more rigid than the ones in your hand. Words in brackets indicate the location of the second bone in relation to the first. E.g.: Calcaneus articulates with the cuboid bone (anterior). This indicates that the cuboid bone is in front the calcaneus. In the foot, the calcaneus articulates (has a joint) with the talus (anterior/superior) and cuboid (anterior) bone. Talus articulates with the tibia and fibula of the lower leg (superior), as well as the calcaneus (posterior/inferior) and the navicular (anterior) bones of the foot. Navicular bone articulates with the talus (posterior), the 3 cuneiforms (anterior), and the cuboid (lateral). The cuboid bone articulates with the calcaneus (posterior), navicular (medial) and the third cuneiform (medial) and the fourth and fifth metatarsals (anterior). The three cuneiforms articulate with each other(medial/lateral), the navicular (posterior), first three metatarsals (anterior) and the third cuneiform articulates with the cuboid (lateral). Metatarsals articulate with the cuboid and cuneiforms (posterior) and the proximal phalanges (anterior). Phalanges articulate with each other and the metatarsals (posterior). Muscles: Yay, finally we get to the meat of this thing (pun totally intended )! The foot has two groups of muscles acting on it, the short (also called the intrinsic) muscles, which originate and end on the foot, and the long muscles, which originate on the lower leg and end on the foot. In this chapter I'll cover only the short ones, since then there would be barely any left for the lower leg itself. I'll be going from the deeper musclus to the more surface ones. Musculi interossei plantares Left foot from below, show the muscles: http://bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image447.gif These guys lie more below than between bones. There are three of them, they originate on the third, fourth and fifth metatarsals, and they insert/end on the medial side of the proximal phalanges of the same toe (fifth metatarsal to fifth proximal phalange). Action: they pull (adduct) their toes towards the line going through the second toe. Musculi interossei dorsales Left foot from above: http://bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image446.gif As their name says, these lie between the metatarsal bones. There are four of them, they have two origins and one end (sort of like the m. biceps brachii). They originate on both of the metatarsals they are between. The first (most medial one) originates on the first and second metatarsal, the second originates on the second and third metatarsal and so on. The first one ends on the medial side of the proximal phalange of the second toe, and the last three end on the lateral side of the proximal phalange of the corresponding toe (second m. interosseus dorsalis goes to the second toe, third to the third toe, fourth to the fourth toe). Action: they pull (abduct) the toes away from the line going through the second toe. Right foot from below, showing the next three muscles: http://bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image445.gif Musculus flexor hallucis brevis (translates to something like 'short flexor of the big toe') This one originates from the cuboid bone, third cuneiform and from the tendon of the m. tibialis posterior. It splits and inserts to the medial and lateral side of the first phalange of the big toe. (And both the insertions have sesamoid bones.) Action: Bends (flexes) the toe downwards. Musculus adductor hallucis This one has two parts. The oblique part originates from the proximal parts of the 2. - 4. metatarsals, the tendon of m. peroneus longus. The transverse part originates from the metatarsophalangeal joints of the 3. - 5. toes. The both insert into the lateral side of the proximal phalange of the big toe. Action: Pulls (adducts) the big toe towards the second toe. Flexor digiti quinti/minimi brevis (short flexor of the fifth/little toe) Originates from the proximal part of the fifth metatarsal and the tendon of the m. peroneus longus. Inserts into the lateral side of the proximal phalange of the fifth toe. Action: Bends the toe downwards and pulls it towards (flexes and adducts) the other toes. --- That's all for now! Thank you for reading! This is more of a rough draft more than anything, i didn't do any proofreading so there might be typos and mistakes. Any critique (contents, formatting, typs, other...) very much welcome! Questions from me: Do you also want to know the innervation, and how precisely? How precise do you think I should be when describing origins/insertions? (And should I be precise the same way, or do you think it's more valuable to be precise on e.g. upper arm muscles, but it's okay to be less precise on the muscles of the foot?) What about joints and/or ligaments, do you want more description? Would you like to have a quiz questions for these? If I throw in a word like 'metatarsophalangeal joint', does everyone/most people understand? More/less humor?
  5. This is pretty much asking for a medical advice, which is not advisable on online forums. Your physio and your doctor know you best, they have the most relevant information, so you should listen primarily to them (or you can get a second opinion). Setbacks are discouraging, but you have to get better and then you can gain the muscles back.
  6. It's not realistic, as the other commenters said, but if your character is superhuman, go for it.
  7. It's not accessible on mobile, so try it on a computer. And it should be in the archive (post-2007) somewhere too.

  9. I would get it checked out by doctor/physiotherapist. It's pretty much impossible to tell what's wrong across the internet from so few (and vague tbh) pieces of information. Where exactly does it hurt, the inside, front, outside, back? Does the pain recede immediately after you stop doing the pushups, or does it persist? You could do a form check - take a video of yourself doing pushups and post it here, then we could give you tips about what looks good/bad, and how to change it. Try doing easier form of pushups - hands on stairs/elevated surface, see what changes.
  10. I perceive him more fat than muscled (exaggerated old-school strongman build). Though I can understand the anger, since demi/gods are usually portrayed as the 'superhero' bodytype (can't really think of a fat one). To have a Samoan one as the first one seems a bit like the creators possibly didn't think about the implications. I guess we'll see when the movie comes out, but from the trailer, it doesn't look like his fatness is played for laughs, so at least there's that.
  11. We have an outpatient program for people that went through heart attack. It's basically a monitored training sesions consisting of treadmill, stationary bike and a rowing machine. You have to go through a cardiac stress test beforehand, so they can set the proper load when you're exercising, and they increase it over time of course.
  12. Just a small addition/correction. Pec Minor goes from the above mentioned ribs to the scapula (to be exact, to the processus coracoideus). It should not be involved (at least to a large extent) in breathing at rest, as unless you have your scapula stabilised, it will pull the scapula forward rather than expand the ribs.
  13. I don't think the relationship between Andrew and Evan is getting worse. It does look a bit different then it was in the previous chapter, but not worse imo. They started communicating in their native tongue even. Awesome chapter cropsey, love the growing (heh) powers of Evan and how he can share his muscles. I'm very much looking forward to the next chapters.
  14. There's also a short film (18 minutes) with him, along the same lines.
  15. Retrocadia is a channel where two guys play old videogames (NES, Sega Genesis...) and get drunk. One of them, Jeff, is seriously big, though he's always in a tshirt.
