Functions of the Triceps Brachii in Humans: A Review

Dennis Landin, Melissa Thompson, Meghan Jackson

Abstract


The triceps brachii (TB) is the only muscle that lies along the posterior humerus, and its role in elbow extension has been the topic of investigation for many decades. The TB research has also included subjects such as strength training, effects of aging, training adaptions, etc. The purpose of this paper was to review some of the more unique investigations regarding the functions of the human TB. Specifically, this paper discusses articles that have explored the actions of the TB when manipulating the angles of the joints it crosses, the elbow and shoulder.
