The biceps is a long, narrow muscle that makes up most of the upper arm. The biceps originates at two points: on the scapula near its spine and on your humerus (upper arm bone). From there it passes down through a groove in your shoulder blade as it travels toward your elbow joint.
The biceps’ primary function is to flex your forearm when your elbow is bent and supinated (palm facing upward). In addition, the muscle assists in helping you bring food to your mouth while eating and helps with some shoulder movements such as abduction—the pulling away from the center line of body—and adduction—the bringing together of two body segments back toward their center lines.
The triceps brachii is its own muscle, and it has three heads (heads refers to the origin and insertion). The lateral head originates at the infraglenoid tubercle of the scapula and inserts on olecranon process of the ulna. It works to extend your arm.
The medial head originates at the posterior surface of humerus and inserts on olecranon process of ulna; it works alongside lateral head when extending your arm.
The long head comes from axillary fossa between coracoid process & first rib (anterior part) & ipsilateral clavicle (posterior part), then inserts distally onto greater tuberosity; this movement functions with both long & medial heads as well as lateral head during extension movements in arms which pull against resistance such as pulling back a bow string or pushing against something heavy like a weight bench or machine at gym for example
Now that you know the muscles of the arms, you can get a better understanding of why each of those movements above were part of Thurston’s best biceps and triceps workout for bigger arms.
