Muscle groups should be divided even more

Peter Naughton 9 months ago updated by Carl Juneau, PhD 1 week ago 1

Muscle groups like the back should be divided into lats, upper back, mid back and lower back for more targeted exercises, but that applies to all muscle groups, such as chest, biceps, triceps, legs, core, shoulders etc.

Thanks for voting for this feature -- it's in beta! From the announcement:

You asked. We listened. With this update, we introduce the “Lower back, glutes & hamstrings” body part. These muscles often work together. So much so, they’re often called the “posterior chain”. So, it made sense to group them as one. This group now includes exercises we previously listed as “back” or “legs”. Like the deadlift and its variations. Splitting up body parts is one of our top requested feature, so if there are other body parts you’d like to see in Dr. Muscle, now’s the time to speak up. Let us know on our feedback site at https://muscle.userecho.com/en/communities/1/topics/284-muscle-groups-should-be-divided-even-more. Thanks!
