In the following article we will check out quickly the types of muscles in our body and how they are discerned.

Agonist – A muscle that cause 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 significant movement. 

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 stabilization occurs during many compound movements. 

Antagonist Stabilizer – A 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.
