Pictured above is the brachioradialis muscle along with the other muscles located on the front of the forearm. It assists the biceps muscles by pulling your wrist toward your shoulder. It also helps stabilize the elbow during flexion or extension.
The muscles are layered, showing how some of the muscles are covered by the others. All of the muscles are see-through so that you can appreciate the location and size of each muscle relative to the others. You can access detail for all the muscles in the body with our Coach membership.
