What is the anterior chain?

The posterior chain is the muscles on your backside; hamstrings, glutes, lats, scapular retractors, and rotator cuff muscles. That means the anterior chain is the opposite; muscles that are in front of your body! These include the quads, core, and pectoral muscles.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the tibialis anterior muscle used for?

The muscle inserts into the base of the first metatarsal bone in the foot, located just behind the big toe. It also inserts to the medial and inferior surfaces of the medial cuneiform tarsal. The tibialis anterior muscle helps with dorsiflexion, which is the action of pulling the foot toward the shin.

What are the muscles on the anterior part of the leg?

The muscles of the anterior leg are the tibialis anterior, extensor digitorum longus, fibularis tertius, and extensor hallucis longus (figs. 16-1 and 17-4C). They arise from bone, the strong investing fascia, and the interosseous membrane.
