EMG]) values were recorded at the serratus anterior, latissimus dorsi, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, pectoralis major, anterior deltoid
, and long head of the biceps .
This movement also works the anterior deltoid
on the front part of the shoulders.
For those with tetraplegia (SCI at cervical [C]-level C5 to C7) having the capacity to perform WRLs, an increased level of activation is required at the anterior deltoid
to produce elbow extension and compensate for the complete paralysis of the triceps brachii [9-11].
Improved function may be obtained with activity modification, judicious use of steroid injections, and physical therapy with an emphasis on training of the anterior deltoid
Full strength of the anterior deltoid
and rotator cuff muscles were achieved in 13 shoulders by 6 months.
A recent anatomic study has demonstrated the predictability of the position of the axillary nerve as it crosses the anterior deltoid
raphe, which allows it to be isolated and protected, and dissection can be extended distally.
The anterior deltoid
was then divided in line with its fibers to expose the coracoid process.
Strengthening of the long head of the biceps, coracobrachialis, and anterior deltoid
can be achieved with forward flexion exercises, limiting flexion to 90[degrees].

moment arms during scapular abduction from 0[degrees] to 140[degrees].
These muscles are the left anterior deltoid
muscle, the right rear deltoid muscle and the right rhomboid muscle (assuming you are right handed).
sEMG signals were detected on seven muscles of the right shoulder after depilation and cleaning with alcohol wipes: anterior deltoid
(AD), middle deltoid (MD), posterior deltoid (PD), pectoralis major (PM), upper trapezius (UT), biceps brachii (BB), and triceps brachii (TB).
Prime movers for the bench press exercise include pectoralis major, anterior deltoid
, and triceps brachii muscles (Ojasto and Hakkinen, 2009).
