1 G.Muscles that act on the lower legs 1. Quadriceps femoris- anterior extensors a. Rectus femoris- also extends thigh, runs parallel through the midline 1. Originates from inferior iliac spine 2. Inserts at upper border of patella

3 b. Vastus lateralis 1. Originates from greater trochanter and linea aspera 2. Inserts at tibial tuberosity through patellar ligament c. Vastus medialis 1. Originates from linea aspera 2. Inserts at tibial tuberosity through patellar ligament d. Vastus intermedialis 1. Originates from anterior, lateral surface of femur 2. Inserts at tibial tuberosity through patellar ligament
