  1. Anatomy threads: Foot, Lower leg, Thigh Bones: Right hip bone from the outside/lateral side: http://www.bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image235.gif Right hip bone from the inside/medial side: http://www.bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image236.gif Lots of muscle attachments there, but I've already mentioned some of them in the last chapter, so you can go check that out. The hip bone is made of three bones that fuse during the course of our development: The ilium, tops of which are the flat bones you can feel, when you put your hands on your... hips. The ischium, forms the lower and back part, as mentioned last chapter, you sit on these, and you can find the ischial tuberosity pretty easily by sitting on your hands and pressing upward until you feel the bone. Just make sure your hands aren't between your cheeks, that's a different body part. The pubis (the pubic bone) is the lower front part of the hip bone. This one is palpable right above your penis (if you have one). Foramen obturatum - this hole created by the ischium and pubic bones is mostly filled by the obturator membrane, which is the place of origin for a few muscles. The next two bones are part of the spine, but I'm including them here, I've not decided yet how to deal with the spine in this series. Sacrum - a wedge between the two hip bones in the back. Made of five fused vertebrae. Has a canal and openings for nerves going in and out of the spinal cord, innervating the back of your legs. Coccyx - fused ~ four vertebrae (the number varies) at the lower end of the spine. One of the places of origin for a few muscles. Joints: Hip joint The hip joint is a ball and socket type, which allows it great amount of movement. Thanks to the convexity of the femoral head (and the corresponding concavity of the acetabulum) and thanks to the ligaments around it, it's also quite a stable joint. Sacroiliacal joint This is a solid joint, thanks to its structure and the firmness of the surrounding ligaments, there isn't much movement possible in this joint. Symphysis pubica This is the connection of the two pubic bones, in the front of the pelvis. This can be felt a bit above the penis (if you have one) where it meets your underbelly. Muscles: Right leg from the front, showing the m. iliopsoas and m. tensor fasciae latae: http://bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image430.gif M. iliopsoas. This can be separated into two or three parts. The m. iliacus originates on the inner side of the iliac bone. The m. psoas major begins on the sides of the bodies of the lumbar vertebrae. The m. psoas minor begins on the sides of the bodies of the last thoracic and the first lumbar vertebra. Also, not everyone has this muscle. All these three muscles go down and insert into the lesser trochanter of the femur (bump on the inner side of the thigh bone). Action: flexing the hip joint. If the leg is fixed, the muscle will pull the lumbar spine forward, increasing the lumbar lordosis. I'll go over the curves of the spine later, but the short version is, your lumbar spine in standing rests naturally in a forward curve. M. iliopsoas can deepen this curve. M. tensor fasciae latae. The tensor of the wide thick fascia (also called the 'iliotibial band'), which lies on the lateral side of the thigh. It's not a strip of fascia just going from the ilium to the lateral side of the tibia, it's a thicker part of the fascia that envelops the thigh. Action: helps with inward rotation, abduction of the thigh and stability of the extended leg. Right leg from behind: http://bartleby.com/107/Images/large/image434.gif M. gluteus minimus. A fan shaped muscle, originates on the outside of the ilium, it's fibers converging down towards the greater trochanter. Action: abduction of the thigh or keeping the pelvis level when you stand on one leg (e.g. like when you walk). Also helps with both inward and outward rotation of the thigh. M. gluteus medius. Covers the previous muscle, the front part of it is palpable, the back part of it is covered by the m. gluteus maximus. Action: same as the previous. M. gluteus maximus. This guy hogs all the glory. It originates from the back part of the illiac bone, from around the sacroiliacal joint, the coccyx and is linked through fascia to the spinal muscles. It goes laterally downward, where it inserts into the back of the femur and the iliotibial band. Action: extension of the leg at the hip. Very useful muscle for walking. Now let's dig a little deeper. M. piriformis. A pear-shaped muscle (hence the name). It originates from the front side of the sacrum, it goes laterally, goes around the femur from the back and inserts into the greater trochanter. Action: outward rotation of the thigh, can help with extension and abduction of the thigh. M. obturator internus. This one originates on the inner/medial side of the obturator membrane. The fibers then run back and laterally (around the ischium), and then inserts into the medial side of the greater trochanter of the femur. Flanking above and below are two small muscles, the mm. gemelli (m. gemellus superior and inferior), they begin on the ischium next to the m. obturator internus, and go with it and insert into the medial side of the greater trochanter. Action: If the leg is straight, they rotate the thigh outwards, if it's flexed (e.g. when you're sitting), they abduct the leg. M. obturator externus. Originates on the outer/lateral side of the obturator membrane, as well as the bone around it. The fibers then go around the femur from the back, and insert into the medial side of the greater trochanter. Action: Rotates the leg outward, no matter the position. M. quadratus femoris. Originates on the lateral part of the tuberosity of the ischium. Goes laterally (the fibers are horizontal when you're standing) to the back of the thigh bone. Action: Rotates the leg outward. Pelvic floor If you've heard of Kegels, those exercises work the muscles of the pelvic floor. The exact structure differs depending on what kind of configuration you got down there. I'm going to keep this group short, if there's interest, I can go more into detail. There's m. levator ani and the m. coccygeus, which form a diaphraghm not unlike the one you breathe with, providing the lower floor of the so-called 'core', which keeps your guts from falling through the pelvis to the ground and it can help create intra-abdominal pressure. Like when you're pooping, forcefully exhaling, or doing heavy lifting. There are also others, like the anal sphincters (they form the opening to your rectum, the inner one is involuntarily controlled, the external voluntarily), and the muscles that form the perineum. Quiz: 1) How many bones form one hip bone? [] 3 [] 6 [] 4 2) When you leg is fixed, m. iliopsoas makes your spine: [] straighten up [] curve more forward [] curve more backward Food for thought: The Kegels exercise the pelvic floor muscles, bring us more awareness and control over them. If you've tried them out (or are doing them on a regular basis), have you thought about consciously relaxing them as well? As always, any comments, questions and other things are welcome, especially as a reminder that I'm not just yelling all this info into the void.
  2. From what I remember, the body can adapt to sweat more with endurance training (sweating is the body's way of cooling itself down), so if they do endurance work, bodybuilders can sweat more than the average person.
  3. The author deleted the story from the forums, and put it up on amazon for sale as an actual novel.
  4. The length of your cut will probably be determined by how much weight you're trying to get rid of, so the first step is setting that goal. Do you want to lose another 40 lbs? 70? As for other tips, are you counting your calories? If you do it through an app like myfitnesspal, it could help you with the cheat meals. (If you are afraid of 'losing what muscle you actually have', do those cheat meals even help you retain that? If not, you just lost your rationalization and you're one step closer to getting to your target weight and starting the bulking in earnest.)
  5. Great story! Love how big the coach's getting. I'd love a more detailed look on what goes on during the time where he's not coaching the team (and growing ). Few more interaction with the school authorities, how he manages food, that sort of thing.
  6. Is it the Cop Encounter?
  7. What are your stats? weight, height, arms and chest for starters what's your routine like? what kind of exercises do you do? It's kind of hard to give advice without knowing even the barest of facts.
  8. Great to see another story! I'm looking forward to all the things the growing coach will do to motivate his team. Their devotion is also nice to see coiledfist.org it's a site more focused on the macro/micro (and the growth/shrinking) kink, rather than muscle growth
  9. Have you had any previous injuries in that area? When you touch it, does it feel like a muscle?
  10. height

    Good chapter! Sad to hear this story will be ending, but I'm very much looking forward to what else you can come up with!
  11. There's the http://bc4m.club/hosts which is a single site with quite a lot of big guys (including the ones you mentioned) that are 'muscle worship personalities' as you put it.
  12. That was an awesome and hot story BGryphon! Amazing work!
  13. Tbh, the answer to this depends on who you're speaking to. People that prefer ripped muscle will like better people with lower fat (even if they have 'small' muscles), while people that prefer size will tell you to just go for building muscle.
  14. He actually posted it exactly on his day, no lateness involved.
  15. That was an awesome and hot story cutlerfan! Thank you so much for sharing!
