We know numerous movements in our body,but we should be aware about the muscle movement categorization.

Agonist- A muscle that causes motion. 

Antagonist- A muscle that can move the joint opposite to the movement produced by the agonist. 

Target- The primary muscle intended for exercise. 

Synergist- A muscle that assists another muscle to accomplish a movement. 

Stabilizer- A Muscle that contracts with no significance movements. 

Dynamic stabilizer- A biarticular muscle that simultaneously shortens at the target joint and lengthens at the adjacent joint with no appreciable difference in length. Dynamic stabilizers occur  during many compound movements. 

Antagonist stabilizer- Muscle that contracts to maintain the tension potential of a biarticular muscle at the adjacent joint. The antagonist stabilizer may be contracted throughout or at only one extreme of the movement.
