  Hamstrings   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The biarticulate hamstring muscles [1, 3, 4 ] enter passive insufficiency through the completion of knee extension when the hips are more flexed or through the completion of hip flexion when the knees are more extended.
The biarticulate hamstring muscles [1, 3, 4 ] enter active insufficiency through the completion of knee flexion when the hips are more extended (short head of biceps femoris [2 ] becomes more active) or through the completion of hip extension when the knees are more flexed (gluteus maximus becomes more active).
This may be explained by the principles of detraining (aka "use it or lose it").

biceps femoris is a large muscle comprised of two heads (two points of attachment to the bone), the long head (caput longum) and the short head (caput breve).
The long head of the biceps femoris is innervated by the tibial nerve and the short head is innervated by the peroneal nerves.
It originates from the anterior shaft of the femur and inserts in the tuberosity of the tibia with the tendon of the quadriceps femoris and the patellar ligaments.

Biceps is a (Any dialect of the language of ancient Rome) Latin term that means two heads.
The biceps brachii is the prominent muscle on the upper (A human limb; technically the part of the superior limb between the shoulder and the elbow but commonly used to refer to the whole superior limb) arm, and are associated with strength.
Biceps can also refer to the biceps femoris, one of the (One of the tendons at the back of the knee) hamstring muscles of the underside of the (The part of the leg between the hip and the knee) thigh.

 biceps femoris muscle (anatomy) - General Practice Notebook   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The biceps femoris muscle of the leg derives its name from having two heads of origin, long and short.
The short head originates from the lateral lip of the middle third of the linea aspera and the lateral supracondylar line of the femur.
The nerve supply of biceps femoris reflects the fact that the short head develops in the flexor compartment of the thigh - it is innervated by the common peroneal branch of the sciatic nerve (L5, S1).

The second head of the biceps femoris (ie, short head) originates medial to the linea aspera on the distal posterior femur.
The short head of the biceps femoris crosses only one joint to insert with the long head of the biceps femoris onto the fibular head and lateral tibial condyle.
The short head of the biceps femoris muscle also is unique in that it is innervated by the peroneal portion of the sciatic nerve, whereas the long head of the biceps femoris, semimembranosus, and semitendinosus are innervated by the tibial portion of the sciatic nerve.

 Hamstring Muscles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
As the name implies, the "biceps femoris" has two heads, or immovable ends, one attached to the ischium (bone in the pelvis) and the other attached to the femur (thigh bone).
The biceps femoris is one of the hamstring muscles, and its tendon (hamstring) can be felt as a ridge behind the knee.
It connects the ischium to the tibia and functions to flex and rotate the leg medially and to extend the thigh.

Originating in the shoulder area, the heads of the biceps merge partway down the arm to form a rounded mass of tissue linked by a tendon to the radius, the smaller of the two forearm bones.
When the biceps contracts, the tendon is pulled toward the heads, thus bending the arm at the elbow.
The size and solidity of the contracted biceps are a traditional measure of physical strength.

 New York School Of Regional Anesthesia - Popliteal Block: Lateral Approach
When not immediately apparent visually, the groove between the vastus lateralis and biceps femoris is examined by firmly pressing the fingers of the palpating hand against the adipose tissue in the groove approximately at 8 cm above the popliteal fossa crease.
Cessation of the biceps femoris twitches should prompt slower needle advancement as this signify that the needle has entered the popliteal fossa and proximity to the nerve.
When the stimulation of the sciatic nerve is not obtained within 2 cm after cessation of the biceps femoris twitches, the needle is probably not in plane with the nerves and it should not be advanced further as this carries a risk of puncturing the popliteal vessels.

These three muscles are the semimembranosus, the semitendinosus and the biceps femoris.
The insertion points of the biceps femoris are to the head of the fibula, to the lateral condyle of the tibia and the fascia of the leg.
This allows the action of the muscle to be an assistant with the flexion of the knee by pulling on the lower leg (tibia and fibula) but also helps with both hip extension and external rotation about the hip.

Four weight-bearing muscles were studied: two hip extensors (the gluteus maximus and the long head of the biceps femoris), one component of the quadriceps (the vastus lateralis), and the major plantar flexor of the ankle (the soleus).
On manual muscle-testing, the mean grade for both the inferior part of the gluteus maximus and the long head of the biceps femoris was 4, although individual strengths ranged from grade 2 to grade 5 (Table I).
In contrast, the tendon of the biceps femoris, by inserting on the head of the fibula, is consistently aligned to induce flexion of the knee.
