Forearm Extensors
 
The extensors of the forearms are a group of two muscles located in the posterior arm region on both sides of the body.  Their names are: 1) Triceps Brachii and 2) Anconeus.  These muscles are shown in Figure 1 below:

INNERVATION (NERVE SUPPLY)

The triceps muscle is suppled by the radial nerve (C6, C7 and C8) which is a branch from the musculo-spiral nerve and the anconeus muscle is also supplied by the radial nerve (C7, C8 and T1) which too is a branch from the musculo-spiral nerve. See Figure 2 below:
