InfraspinatusAction: Lateral Rotation of the shoulder (humerus); horizontal adduction of humerus.

SupraspinatusAction: Adduction of shoulder (humerus); stabilizes shoulder joint

Flexor Capri UlnarisAction: Flexes wrist; acts with Extensor Carpi Ulnaris to adduct wrist

Subscapularis: medial (internal) rotation of humerus; stabilizes shoulderlateral (external) rotation of humerus

Brachialis: flexes elbow

Flexor carpi radialis: flexes and abducts wristTeres Minor: Action: provides Lateral, external rotation of humerus.

Triceps Brachii:Action: extends elbow and shoulder

Extensor carpi ulnaris:Action: extends and adducts wrist, also acts with flexor carpi ulnaris to adduct wrist.
