Elbow Flexors

The muscle that flex the elbow joint are the biceps brachii, the brachialis, the brachioradialis,and the pronator teres.Of these muscles, the primary elbow flexors are the biceps brachii and the brachialis. Are you ready for a little silliness to help you remember the elbow flexor muscles?Think of this group as three Bs and a P,and notice that all four letters are flexd that is, the loops of the Bs and P are flexed, or bent, just as the elbow is when these muscles are contracting. Don't groan we said silly, didn't we?
