Your body has many muscles that can perform a variety of actions. In general, your muscles are grouped into four groups: prime mover, synergist and antagonist, and fixator. The prime mover muscles are the muscles most responsible for a specific action of a joint, like flexing your knee. There are usually only two prime movers in each joint – one for extension (straightening) and one for flexion (bending). When you do exercises that target the bending of your knees, the quadriceps muscles function as the agonists while the hamstring muscles function as the antagonists.

Synergist muscles are the supporting muscles that assist in the action of the agonist muscles. They usually run across the joint to help coordinate movements and create a smooth, efficient movement pattern. In the case of a curl, the brachioradialis muscle runs from your wrist across your elbow to your upper arm bone and helps to initiate the curl while the biceps muscles finish the movement by straightening the hand.

Antagonist muscles counteract the action of the agonist muscle by slowing it down or holding it in position. The triceps muscles act as an antagonist to your biceps muscles in your arms. To perform an effective curl, the triceps must be relaxed for the biceps to fully extend your arm.

Fixator muscles hold the bones of your joints and prevent them from moving too much or at all. They’re important for your balance and posture. They’re also the muscles that keep your spine and joints strong, and without them you would be stiff and uncomfortable. You can strengthen these muscles through regular exercise, especially those that challenge your balance and core. Walking, running, lifting weights and swimming are all great examples. If you live a sedentary lifestyle, these muscles are likely to become weak and ineffective at performing their jobs. To help them be more effective, it’s important to do regular cardiovascular and strength training.
