    base 3rd metaCARPAL BONE
  15. what is the action of the extensor carpi radialis brevis?
    extends and abducts hand at wrist
  16. what is the proximal attachemnt for the extrensor carpi ulnaris?
    lateral epicondyle of humerus and posterior border of ulna
  17. what is the distal attachemnet for the extensor carpi ulnaris?
    base of the 5th metacarpal bone
  18. what is the action of the extensor carpi ulnaris?
    extends and adducts the hand at the wrist.
  19. What is the proximal attachment of the bicep brachi?
    Short head: apex of coracoid process of scapula.

    Long head: suprglenoid tubercle of scapula
  20. What is the distal attachment of the bicep brachii?
    tuberosity of radius and facsia of forearm vis bicipital aponeurosis.
  21. what si the action fo the bicep brachii?
    supinates flexed forearm; flexes forearm at the elbow; weak arm flexor.

    flexes the forearm at the elbow in all positions
  25. what is the proximal attachment for the coracorachialis?
    Tip of the coracoid process of scapula
  26. what is the distal attachment for the coracobrachialis?
    middle third of the medial surface of humerus
  27. what is the action of the coracobrachialis?
    helps flex and adduct arm at shoulder

    • proximal end of olecranon
    • or ulna and fascia
    • of forearm
  32. what is the actions of the tricep brachii?
    extends forearm at the elbow; is chief extensor of elbow; steadies head of abducted humerus (long head)
  33. what si the proximal attachment of the anconeus?
    lateral epicondyle
  34. what is the distal attachment of the anconeus?
    lateral surface of olecranon and superior part of posterior surface of ulna
