    Post MRI scans for Arms and Legs (Tables of which exercises work which muscle heads)


    Guide to Arm Chart and Tables

    Raise your left arm beside your body, palm down, and imagine looking into a cross-sectional slice of it. Always view the images from this perspective. If the bodybuilder is facing you while doing the exercise, just put yourself in his/her place and visualize the image being taken of your left upper arm.

    Lateral, long, and medial heads of the triceps brachii and the elbow flexors of the biceps brachii and brachialis muscles.
