Muscle 22: Adductor Magnus  (and Longus, and Brevis) Aka the thigh gap muscles.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adductor_magnus_muscle
This collection of muscles help pull your legs together. Like when you have to pee and hold it in.

Day 24: Biceps


Muscle 25: Brachialis aka Biceps best friend  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brachialis_muscle
Arms two days in a row, because the Brachialis is an important part of what makes biceps peak.
and yes, your arms have Biceps Brachii, Brachialis, and Brachioradialis all next to each other. Because that's how you name stuff...
Just be lucky we aren't going any deeper into the Biceps, they have a long and short head, and the long head is the shorter one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO70v8F9VeQ - this dude does a great video series on workouts, but he draws the muscles on himself to show how they work. It's great for seeing where they're supposed to be and where they move when you flex.

Day 25: Brachialis


Muscle 26: Serratus Anterior aka the top of the zippers  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serratus_anterior_muscle
While they technically start on the back, they're only visible on the body towards the front in the small part between the lats and the obliques where they zip together.

Day 26: Serratus Anterior


Muscle 27: Tensor fasciae latae aka I had no idea there was a muscle there until gluteus maximus day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensor_fasciae_latae_muscle
This little guy attaches to a important tendon that runs from your hip and the top of your butt muscle down the outside of your thighs to your knee.
very rarely significantly seen, it is the farthest "out" muscle for your hips/butt area and important for side kicks and learning how the torso and legs connect.

Day 27: Tensor Fasciae latae


Muscle 28: Teres Major  aka That's not the lats bro.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teres_major_muscle

The teres major, partly situated under the lats, can both show up on it's own, or push the lats farther out. Occasionally giving the lats a "double bump" in the armpit area.

Day 28: Teres Major


Muscle 29: Soleus aka Calves underbuddy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soleus_muscle
This guy hiding under the Achilles tendon I've been inadvertently drawing without realizing it was a different muscle since Calves day.

Muscle 30: Corrugator supercilii  aka  the Angry Muscle  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corrugator_supercilii_muscle
Thanks again to Desi for the reccomendation!
This lil guy, hidden under your frontalis and obicularis muscle is responsible for pulling your eyebrows together when you're sad or pissed off.

Day 30: Corrugator Supercilii


Muscle 31: The Heart
Of course I had to be cheesy on the last day.
I spent this whole month drawing what I love, learning about it, and somehow stuck with it every single day.
This has been an amazing experience for me, and I hope somehow it helps others as much as it's helped me.
Thank you to everyone who supported me through these exercises. (mostly on discord, which is why it's not in this thread btw)
So for tomorrow, just draw what your heart tells you.
(or an actual heart, if you really want too...)

Day 31: Heart


And that's it!  Thank you again to everyone who cheered me on through this exercise~
This has been an incredible help to me, and something I certainly should have done earlier.
Oh, and If you ever need muscle/anatomy practice you can still drop it in the thread here! Though I'd recommend poking me on discord too, just in case. ^_^

Hopefully I'll see you all in this thread next year!
