A small muscle in the upper arm that originates
on the Coracoid process (Crazy, right?) and inserts
around the upper-third of the Humerus.
But more importantly, A muscle that you will rarely if ever
when looking up exercise routines online, reading body-building forums, or when engaging
in casual conversation at your
local gym. Why? Because very
few meathead Broscientists ever
have enough actual scientific evidence or basic anatomical education to ever know
what the Coracobrachialis
muscle is, let alone spell/pronounce it.
This neglected muscle falls
unfortunately under the same category
never talked about/trained yet just as important muscles such as Anterior Tibialis, Levator Scapulae, Teres Major
(or Upper Lat, as many non-educated Broscientists will tell you, despite it being an entirely different muscle than the Latissimus Dorsi) and Anconeus. (That's right, your
arm IS made up of more than just the Bi's N' Tri's.
- "Hey man, what
are you workin' out today?
Local Broscientist - "Well, ima prolly hit the bi's N' tri's pretty hard, maybe do some Lats, Pecs, Traps, you know, all the important muscles."
- "That sounds.... Awesome.. You ever tried training your
Local Broscientist - "uhhhhh.... you mean Pecs?"
- "Uhhh yeah..:\"
