We’re almost ready to move on, to look at the vessels and nerves of the hip region, but before we do that, let’s review what we’ve just seen of the muscles.

Here’s gluteus maximus, biceps femoris, semitendinosus, and semimembranosus.

Here’s gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus.

Here’s piriformis, obturator internus, and quadratus femoris; and here’s adductor magnus, seen from behind.

On the front, here’s tensor fascia lata, sartorius, and rectus femoris, psoas major, and iliacus, pectineus, adductor brevis, longus, and magnus, and gracilis, and here again are piriformis, obturator internus, and obturator externus.
