The body is composed of different muscle groups and they all serve a diversified role. This is the reason why there is great need to have an in-depth understanding of these groups and be able to know how to exercise them for maximum muscle development and attain a balanced body. Before starting exercising any body part it is wise to take precautions on the possible involvement of muscles in order to avoid any form of injuries or even overstraining the muscles. The upper arms serve a major role for bodybuilders, lifting being the key element of these muscle groups. There are several parts of the upper arm which discussed in this article.
Biceps Brachii is one of these key parts. It also composed of two minor parts which are hard to define or separate. The long head is one stratified part. It is defined as the outer region set to the upfront of the specific upper arm. The other part is the short head, this is the opposite of the later, and it is simply the inner part to the upper arm front. All these parts are of great relevant when exercising. The biceps Brachii serves a dignified role especially when one is flexing the elbow. This is a situation where the lower arm is moved upfront towards the upper arm.
Triceps Brachii is the other key upper arm part. The triceps Brachii also has great composition. It is located strategically to the stern of the upper arm. The triceps has three heads including the medial head, lateral head, and long head. They are all set in strategic position and serve varied roles. First, the lateral head is positioned to the outer part, back of the upper arm which is the region positioned furthest from the whole body. It is mainly responsible in providing the "horse shoe", a shape well defined for the triceps Brachii. The location of the medial head is nearer to the elbow; this is the inner area, close to the back of the subsequent upper arm. The long head is generally a composition of the bulk of the upper arm back part which is placed between the lateral and medial heads. Generally triceps help in extending the elbow in all directions.
Brachialis are also a part of the upper arm muscles. It is generally the muscle which runs deep under these biceps Brachii and also helps in extending the elbow. In fact the word Brachialis means in Latin "To the arm".
All these parts of great relevance in upper are composition. The greatest worry comes in when one has to identify exercises to use in order to ensure that, the body is maximally exercised.
