Muscles and bones function together as an integrated whole.

This chapter considers the musculoskeletal system which consists in particular of skeletal muscles in combination with the skeleton, with one literally attached to the other (via tendons).

Nice introduction to how to describe locations, etc., on the body.

Links to terms of possible interest: Anatomical orientation, Anterior, Distal, Dorsal, Frontal plane, Frontal section, Inferior, Median plane, Median section, Midline, Midsagittal plane, Midsagittal section, Posterior, Proximal, Superior, Torso, Transverse plane, Transverse section, Ventral

The above video provides a pretty overwhelming introduction to the skeletal system, but is pretty awesome as well.
