agonist

Antagonist is the negative/opposite/opponent muscle and agonist is the positive/the one in focus (prime mover).

The muscle that counteracts the agonist (or the prime mover); lengthening when the agonist muscle contracts.

And this also goes the other way around. If you're talking about the triceps muscle, then that would be the agonist. And that makes the bicpes muscle the antagonist.
