Understanding how to learn the skeletal muscle is an important educational process for any health care practitioner.  As a result, the Get Massage Smart team is on a mission to spread the benefits of Touch Therapy and Smart Massage Education.  Get Massage Smart extends a thank you to the many students, instructors and professionals who have given us such wonderful feedback on our efforts to encourage the study of human structure and function.  

On this page we will begin with Crash Course a YouTube channel that covers many science and history topics.  Hank Green of Crash Course explains how cardiac, smooth & skeletal muscles create movement.  Hank goes on to Explain the microscopic structure of skeletal muscle fibers with the sliding filament model, how skeletal muscles are made up of protein fiber bundles or more specifically actin & myosin myofilaments.  He ends his discussion with how calcium and ATP are necessary for a skeletal muscle to produce a contraction.

We will continue with Mr. Ford's series of videos that introduces the three types of muscles of the human body, then adds some information about how to go about learning the skeletal muscles.   At Get Massage Smart we understand that different individuals learn differently.  We hope that by offering various educators take on teaching the Muscular System, specifically skeletal muscles, we can help a wide range of learners.

This review of basic muscular system information can help students preparing to take the MBLx massage therapy licensure exam or other state examinations.

Skeletal Muscles: Origin & Insertion, Isotonic vs. Isometric, Motor Units, Muscle Recruitment, and the Agonist & Antagonist Complex
Presented by Hank Green from Crash Course

Hank Green does a fast yet wonderful job of introducing the concepts of how muscles work together to create movement via the agonist, then work in reverse to produce the opposite movement via the antagonist.  Hank goes on to talk about motor units, the three phases of muscle twitches, the strength and frequency of impulses and the strength and duration of a contraction.  He wraps up his lecture with the difference between twitch summation and tentanus and a discussion on Isotonic and Isometric movements.

Get Massage Smart thanks Crash Course and Hank Green for their well presented A & P video's on the Muscular system and Skeletal Muscles.  Get Massage Smart offers Crash Course videos for their educational value and does not validate their accuracy.
