Anatomically the muscle involved is the ECRB and not the pronator teres, as was suggested in the late 1800s.
The antecubital fossa has three muscular borders: 1) the mobile wad, laterally, consisting of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB); the extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL), and the brachioradialis; 2) the pronator teres, medially; and the biceps, superiorly.
Muscles include deltoid posterior (DP), middle (DM), and anterial (DA), pectorelis major clavicle portion (PC), biceps brachii (BB) including biceps long (BBlh) and biceps short (BBsh) , triceps brachii (TB) including triceps lateral (TBlt), triceps long (TBlh) and triceps mid (TBmd), brachialis (BS), brachioradialis (BR), pronator teres (PT), supinator (SP) and pronator quadratus (PQ).
