Muscle of the Month (July) Rhomboids

Posted on July 24th, 2006, by relax

The rhomboids reside just below the neck, and are also called the middle back.  The rhomboids are involved in scapular stabilization and movement, and are a large factor in arm movement.  The rhomboids actually consist of two sets of two muscles each.  Each set resides on one side of the spine, and are made up of one muscle on top of another.  The top muscle is called the rhomboid major, while the one on the bottom is called the rhomboid minor.
