A Resource for Muscles & Their Actions

I found exrx.net to be a good collection of exercise related information with a seemingly limitless number of muscle-associated exercises listed.  I had a muscle in mind and it was the first muscle I searched for, the Iliocostalis.  I wasn’t able to locate it initially.  After clicking around, I found it under “waist exercises”.  On the waist exercises page I was able to click the section title “Erector Spinae” and then land on the page detailing the anatomy and description of the three main erector muscles, which included the Iliocostalis.  And another curiosity to mention was that exrx.net had the Pectoralis Minor listed as a synergist to the Pectoralis Major and the Pectoralis Major as a shoulder extension, adduction and abduction muscle.
