A lot of it is memorization and practice. Life drawing courses are very helpful, but you can also pick up books like George Bridgeman's anatomy books, Dynamic Anatomy by Burne Hogarth, or Figure drawing for all it's worth by Andrew Loomis. Once you start figuring out the base construction of a figure, you can develop it from there.
