LATISSIMUS DORSI
THIS IS THE BROADEST MUSCLE OF THE BACK
TERES MAJOR
THIS MUSCLE IS CALLED ''LAT'S LITTLE HELPER" BECAUSE IT IS A COMPLETE SYNERGIST WITH LATISSIMUS DORSI AND TERES MINOR.
LATISSIMUS DORSI AND TERES MAJOR
THESE TWO MUSCLES ARE SOMETIMES CALLED THE "HANDCUFF MUSCLES" SINCE THEIR ACTIONS COLLECTIVELY BRING THE ARMS INTO THE "ARRESTING" POSITION
SUPRASPINATUS, INFRASPINATUS, TERES MINOR AND SUBSCAPULARIS
WHAT ARE THE FOUR (4) ROTATOR CUFF MUSCLES ?
SUPRASPINATUS
THIS CHUNKY MUSCLE IS LOCATED IN THE SUPRASPINOUS FOSSA
INFRASPINATUS
THE FLAT, CONVERGENT BELLY OF THIS MUSCLE IS LOCATED IN THE INFRASPINOUS FOSSA.
TERES MINOR
THIS SMALL MUSCLE IS SQUEEZED BETWEEN THE INFRASPINATS AND TERES MAJOR
SUBSCAPULARIS
THIS DEEP MUSCLE IS LOCATED ON THE SCAPULA'S ANTERIOR SURFACE, ANDIS SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE SUBCAPULAR FOSSA AND THE SERRATUS ANTERIOR MUSCLE.
SUBSCAPULARIS
THIS IS THE ONLY ROTATOR CUFF MUSCLE THAT ATTACHES TO THE HUMERUS' LESSER TUBERCLE
RHOMBOID MUSCLES
THESE TWO MUSCLES ARE LOCAED BETWEEN THE SCAPULA AND VERTEBRAL COLUMN. THEY ARE NAMED FOR THEIR GEOMETRIC SHAPE. ALSO KNOWN AS CHRISTMAS TREE MUSCLES.
RHOMBOID MAJOR
THIS IS THE LARGER OF THE TWO MUSCLES
WHICH STABLIZES THE SCAPULA
LEVATOR SCAPULA
THIS MUSCLE IS LOCATED ALONG THE LATERAL AND POSTERIOR SIDES OF THE NECK. IT ELEVATES THE SCAPULA AND ROTATES THE HEAD AND NECK TOT HE SAME SIDE
RHOMBOID MINOR
SMALL SUPERIOR MUSCLE CONNECTED TO THE LATERAL SIDE OF THE SHOULDER BLADE. ONE OF THE RHOMBOIDS.
SERRATUS ANTERIOR
WHAT MUSCLE LIES ALONG THE POSTERIOR AND LATERAL RIB CAGE, ALWAYS WELL DEVELOPED ON SUPER HEROES
PECTORALIS MAJOR
A BROAD POWERFUL MUSCLE LOCATED ON THE CHEST. EXCEPT FOR THE PART BENEATH BREAST TISSUE, ITS CONVERGENT, SUPERFICIAL FIBERS ARE ACCESSIBLE
PECTORALIS MINOR
THIS MUSCLE LIES NEXT TO THE RIB CAGE DEEP TO PECTORALIS MAJOR AND HELPS TO ELEVATE THE RIB CAGE FOR INHALATION.
SUBCLAVIUS
THIS MUSCLE IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE CLAVICLE
BICPES BRACHII
WHAT MUSCLE, WHICH HAS TWO HEADS, LIES SUPERFICIALLY ON THE ANTERIOR ARM?
TRICEPS BRACHII
THIS IS THE ONLY MUSCLE, WHICH HAS THREE HEADS, LOCATED ON THE POSTERIOR ARM
CORACOBRACHIALIS
SMALL, TUBULAR MUSCLE LOCATED IN THE AXILLA, SOMETIMES KNOWN AS THE "ARMPIT" MUSCLE.
BRACHIALIS
STRONG ELBOW FLEXOR THAT LIES DEEP TO THE BICPES BRACHII ON THE ANTERIOR ARM
BRACHIORADIALIS
THIS MUSCLE IS SUPERFICIAL ON THE LATERAL SIDE OF THE FOREARM. IT ASSISTS TO PRONATE AND SUPINATE THE FOREARM WHEN THE MOVEMENTS ARE RESISTED.
EXTENSOR CARPI RADIALISLONGUS, EXTENSOR CARPI RADIALIS BREVIS, EXTENSOR CARPI ULNARIS, EXTENSOR DIGITORUM
WHAT ARE THE FOUR EXTENSORS OF THE WRIST AND FINGERS ?
EXTENSOR CARPI RADIALIS LONGUS AND BREVIS
THESE TWO WRIST/HAND EXTENSORS ARE LATERAL/POSTERIOR TO THE BRACHIORADIALIS
EXTENSOR CARPI ULNARIS
AS ITS NAME SUGGEST, THIS EXTENSOR LIES BESIDE THE ULNAR SHAFT.
EXTENSOR DIGITORUM
THIS FINGER/WRIST EXTENSOR HAS FOUR LONG , SUPERFICIAL TENDONS STRECHING ALONG THE DORSAL SURFACE OF THE HAND AND FINGERS.
ANCONEUS
THIS TRIANGULAR-SHAPED MUSCLE ,IS A WEAK ELBOW EXTENSOR LOCATED LATERAL TO THE OLECRANON PROCESS
FLEXOR CARPI RADIALIS, PALMARIS LONGUS, FLEXOR CARPI ULNARIS,
WHAT ARE THE THREE EXTENSORS OF THE WRIST AND FINGERS THAT ARE IN THE SUPERFICIAL LAYER
FLEXOR CARPI RADIALIS
THIS WRIST/FINGER EXTENSOR IS MEDIAL TO THE PRONATOR TERES AND BRACHIORADIALIS
FLEXOR CARPI ULNARIS
THIS WRIST/FINGER EXTENSOR LIES CLOSE TO THE ULNAR SHAFT
PALMARIS LONGUS
WRIST/FINGER EXTENSOR THAT IS SOMETIMES ABSENT,WHICH RUNS BETWEEN FLEXOR CARPI RADIALIS AND FLEXOR CARPI ULNARIS AN ATTACHES TO THE PALMER APONEUROSIS
PRONATOR TERES
LOCATED ON THE ANTERIOR SURFACE OF THE FOREARM,TUCKED BETWEEN THE BRACHIORADIALIS AND FOREARM FLEXORS, THIS MUSCLE PRONATES THE FOREARM
PRONATOR QUADRATUS
THIS SMALL PRONATOR IS FOUND AT THE DISTAL END OF THE FOREARM
