3 Splenius (capitis and cervicis) Origin:Cervicis – spinous process of T3-T6Capitis - lower half of ligmentum nuchea & spinous process of C7 and T1-3.Insertion:Cervicis - transverse process of C1-C3.Capitis – mastoid process and occipital boneActions:WholeCervical ExtensionHalfCervical Rotation to the same side.Cervical Lateral flexion
14 Erector spinae muscles O: Fascia of lower back, posterior L, T and lower C vertebrea, and angles of ribs.InesrtionsSpinalis branch - spinous process of T and C and occipital boneLongissimus branch - transverse process of T and C, mastoid process.Iliocostalis branch - angles of the ribs and cervical transverse processesActions:Whole – ExtensionHalf - Lateral flexion
29 Internal obliqueO: Inguinal ligament (from anterior iliac crest to pubis) and iliac crestI: Costal cartilages of the lower ribs.Actions:Whole – Lumbar flexionHalfLumbar rotation to the same sideLumbar lateral flexion
43 I. INSPRIATION Increase in thorasic cage Volume inside increases Pressure decreasesAir moves into the lungs
44 A. Inspiration at Rest 1. Diaphragm Flattens and moves downward when contracted
45 A. Inspiration at Rest 1. Diaphragm 2. External Intercostals Flattens and moves downward when contracted2. External IntercostalsLift the ribs up and out when contracted
46 B. Inspiration During Exercise 1. Scalenes – elevate upper ribs2. Sternoceidomastoid – elevate clavical and upper ribs3. External intercostal muscles
47 II. EXPIRATION Decrease thorasic cage Volume inside decreases Pressure increasesAir moves out of the lungs
48 A. Expiration at Rest. No muscles are involved Passive recoil action at rest will decrease the thorasic cage
49 B. Expiration During Exercise Internal Intercostals -Rectus Abdominus – help push the diaphragm upward.External obliques– help push the diaphragm upward.Internal obliques– help push the diaphragm upward.Transverse abdominus– help push the diaphragm upward.

51 Note:These muscles need to trained with exercise as any other muscle does.Early limitations (side aches and breathlessness) felt during exercise may involve the untrained state of these muscles.
