The answer to this question is Triceps brachii. This type of muscle can refer to any of the muscles that come with three points of attachments that come from one end. This is the muscle that you can typically find at the back of your arm like your triceps, which is the large muscle that is located at the end. What does this muscle do?

This is responsible for making sure that the elbow joint will be able to bend correctly. This muscle will also make sure that you can do different things with your hands and fingers. For example, when you have to write, you can be sure that this is the muscle that is responsible for that.
