    Target (agonist)
    Pectoralis Major, Sternal

    Synergists
    Pectoralis Major, Clavicular
    Deltoid, Anterior
    Triceps Brachii

    Dynamic Stabilizers
    Biceps Brachii, Short Head

    Stabilizers
    Rectus Abdominis
    Obliques
    Quadriceps

    from exrx.net

    Antagonists are probably: posterior deltoid, rhomboids, trapezius, teres major.

    I was wondering why the biceps are considered a stabilizers and not an antagonist?...and how come the triceps are not considered to be agonists?

    Because the triceps help the movement.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I understand this but it just seems that they play a major role in the movement...I was under the impression that an agonist is any muscle that plays a major role in the movement...

    the triceps are a regulator.. this is similar to an agonist but it contracts eccentrically rather than concentrically controlling the speed of the downward phase of a pressup
