Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
In human anatomy, the biceps brachii, or simply biceps in common parlance, is, as the name implies, a two-headed muscle located on the upper arm. Both heads arise on the scapula and join to form a single muscle belly which is attached to the upper forearm.
Brachialis
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The brachialis muscle is located beneath the bicep muscle and is involved in elbow flexion.
Brachioradialis
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
Brachioradialis is a muscle of the forearm that acts to flex the forearm at the elbow. It is also capable of both pronation and supination, depending on the position of the forearm.

Extensor Carpi Radialis
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The extrinsic extensor muscles of the hand are located in the back of the forearm and have long tendons connecting them to bones in the hand, where they exert their action.

The flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) muscle is a muscle of the human forearm that acts to flex and adduct the hand.
Infraspinatus
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
In human anatomy, the infraspinatus muscle is a thick triangular muscle, which occupies the chief part of the infraspinatous fossa. As one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff, the main function of the infraspinatus is to externally rotate the arm and stabilize the shoulder joint.
Pectoralis Major
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The pectoralis major is a thick, fan-shaped muscle, situated at the chest (anterior) of the body. It makes up the bulk of the chest muscles in the male and lies under the breast in the female.
Pronator Quadratus
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
Pronator quadratus is a square shaped muscle on the distal forearm that acts to pronate (turn so the palm faces downwards) the hand.
Supinator
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
In human anatomy, the supinator is a broad muscle in the posterior compartment of the forearm, curved around the upper third of the radius. Its function is to supinate the forearm.
Supraspinatus
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The supraspinatus (plural supraspinati, from Latin supraspinatus) is a relatively small muscle of the upper arm that runs from the supraspinatous fossa superior of the scapula (shoulder blade) to the greater tubercle of the humerus.
Teres Major
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The teres major muscle is a muscle of the upper limb and one of six scapulohumeral muscles. It is a thick but somewhat flattened muscle, innervated by the lower subscapular nerve (c5,c6).
Triceps Brachii
Posted On November 14 2018. Updated On November 14 2018.
The triceps brachii muscle (Latin for “three-headed arm muscle”) is the large muscle on the back of the upper limb of many vertebrates.
