The arms are comprised of the triceps, brachialis, biceps, and forearm muscles (wrist flexors and extensors). The triceps function to straighten or extend the arm at the elbow. The brachialis flexes or bends the arm at the elbow with the hand in pronation (facing in or forward) as when performing a hammer curl or a reverse curl. The biceps flex or bend the arm at the elbow with the hand in supination (facing backward) as when performing a barbell or dumbbell curl.
