I have been searching for hours a list of muscle/movements and their antagonistic counterparts.
I have found some lists, but they either contradict other lists or ate incomplete.
I would love a definitive listing of the following muscles/movements:
Upper Chest/Incline Bench
Upper Chest/Incline Flys
Front Shoulder/Front Raises
Side Shoulder/Lateral Raises
Rear Shoulder/Rear Lateral Raises
Thanks in advance!
Don't think of exercises. Think of movements.
What happens during these exercises. Compound multi-joint and multiplanar movements aren't easy or even smart to categorize by muscles involved. Then again something like front raises are very simple since they only move from a single joint in a single plain. With a basic understanding of human anatomy, many of these questions should be no-brainers. Hell, even if you can use google you could figure this out. What muscle(s) causes the flexion of the arm?
Read anatomy, understand movement planes and patterns and you got this figured out.
This is also a very good, helpful resource: http://exrx.net/Articulations/Shoulder. ... chor103519
