In lamens terms ones that work together to move a single part of your body for example: biceps triceps, quadriceps hamstrings and abdominals gluteus maximus.

Examples of antagonistic muscle pairs are: -biceps and triceps located in the arm -quadriceps and hamstrings located in the legs


When one muscle pulls, the other muscle relaxes.


it means your a big gay bellend


A muscle that opposes the actions of another. =] A muscle that opposes the actions of another. =]


which two pairs of muscles are antagonistic pairs?


Muscles work in agonistic and antagonistic pairs; an example is the bicep and the tricep. When you flex your arm, the bicep is the agonist (the contracting muscle) and the tricep is the antagonist (the relaxing muscle.) When you extend your arm, it's the opposite - the bicep is antagonistic and the tricep is antagonistic.


they are pairs of muscle that work together alternating. they need each other because no muscle can stretch a so the other mucle contracts.


Antagonistic muscles are found in pairs called antagonistic pairs. These consist of an extensor muscle, which "opens" the joint (i.e. increasing the angle between the two bones), flexor muscle, which does the opposite to an extensor muscle. Antagonistic pairs are needed in the body because muscles can only exert a pulling force, and can't push themselves back into their original positions. An example of this kind of muscle pairing is the biceps brachii and triceps brachii. When the biceps is contracting, the triceps is relaxed, and stretches back to its original position. The opposite happens when the triceps contracts.


Because muscles are capable of shortening themselves, not lengthening. An antagonistic muscle that performs the opposite action is necessary to lengthen the paired contracted muscle.


Working in antagonistic pairs allows the body part to move back to its original position. For instance, your fingers wouldn't work very well if you only had a muscle to flex them, but not extend them.

Looks like you are looking for the antagonistic pair. The muscular group that flexes the arm would be the antagonistic pair of tricep brachi and the brachialis.


When one muscle works against another it is known as an antagonistic action. This is common is muscles that are found in pairs.



contracts - for antagonistic muscle pairs e.g. muscles in arm (when one relaxes, other contracts, and vice versa)


AN example of a synergistic muscle pair would be the biceps brachii and the brachialis muscle that work together to flex the forearm. A muscle antagonistic to those two would be the triceps brachii which functions to extend the forearm.


Muscles cannot push, they can only pull which means they work in pairs in order to move, this is known as antagonistic pairs. For example with a bicep curl you have the agonist/ prime mover (Bicep) and the antagonist/ Opposing muscle group (Triceps). As the agonist contracts it pulls the antagonist which relaxes.


The meaning of an antagonistic pair is only one muscle can work at a time. Ex: Bicep and Tricep Muscle


They work in antagonistic muscle pairs. Which means to work in opposition to each other.One muscle produces movement in one direction and the other muscle produces movement in the opposite direction. This provides smooth movement. One contracts and the other slowly relaxes.


Muscle fiber along the ventral surface of the frog is arranged in a very specific way. They are arranged in antagonistic pairs or groups that have opposing actions.


Because muscle can only contracts. The only way for it to lengthen is by having an outside force, ie, another muscle's contraction.


they are called antagonistic muscles.


It is a muscle that opposes the action of another. The biceps and the triceps are an antagonistic pair of muscles.


Muscles work in antagonistic pairs, this is because muscles can only contract, when one muscle contracts the other one relaxes such as bending the leg, the hamstring would contract whilst the quadriceps relax.


Antigonistic Pairs- The meaning of an antagonistic pair is only one muscle can work at a time. For Example: Biceps and Triceps (in your arm)
