iMuscle

Jun 26, 2014 | by AIF

iMuscle is an app used to identify a body part or individual muscle; useful if you’re studying or have an interest in fitness, exercise science, or anatomy. Angelo Peghini, Australian Institute of Fitness WA Massage and Fitness Coach, reviews the app.

What is It?

iMuscle works by zooming into a three dimensional human body to identify a body part of muscle. With the musculature exposed, you can then access hundreds of exercises associated with the muscle selected. It has been designed for the professional Personal Trainer or fitness professional, and the fitness novice.

How Does it Work?

Just choose and pin an individual muscle on the 3D model or choose from the drop down list for a bob to open with a representation of exercises for that area. Selecting the exercise then expands into an information box that has an animated GIF of the exercise and some alternatives as well as a picture of all muscles used. The exercises can be saved into a workout along with progressions, e.g. sets, reps, and kg.

Pro’s

  • 360 degree rotation of body parts
  • Smooth zooming
  • Hints and tips for 450 exercises
  • Create and share workouts via Bluetooth
  • Able to handle multi users

Con’s

  • Some users complain of it freezing on the iPad mini, but I had no problems on the iPad 2

Who Would Find it Useful?

  • Personal Trainers and Physiotherapists as it’s handy to be able to show clients how to do certain exercises or workouts
  • Students studying fitness and/or massage as it’s a useful tool for learning functional anatomy and designing workouts
