  2. Erector spinae
    Action: prime mover of back extension

    Antagonist: rectus abdominus
  3. Superficial muscles of the posterior thorax

    levator scapulae

  4. Trapezius

  5. Levator scapulae
    Origin: transverse processes of C1 - C4

    Insertion: medial border of the scapula, superior to the spine

    Action: elevates and adducts scapula
  6. Rhomboids

  7. Deep muscles of the thorax which assist in breathing
    external intercostals

    internal intercostals

  8. External intercostals
    Action: raises ribs for INSPIRATION (inhale)

    Antagonist: internal intercostals

    Synergist: pectoralis minor, diaphragm, scalenes, sternocleidomastoid
  9. Internal intercostals

    Action: draws scapula anteriorly and inferiorly

    Synergist: external intercostals, diaphragm, scalenes, sternocleidomastoid
  13. Serratus anterior
    Action: protracts and rotates scapula

    Antagonist: rhomboids, trapezius
  14. Muscles of the abdomen

  16. External oblique
    Action: flexion and rotation of trunk

    Synergist: rectus abdominis, internal oblique, transverse abdominis
  17. Internal oblique
    Action: flexes, rotates trunk

    Synergists: rectus abdominis, external oblique, transverse abdominis
  18. Transverse abdominis
    Action: compresses abdominal wall

    Synergists: rectus abdominis, external oblique, internal oblique
