What muscles and joints are used when throwing a dart?

This is for an anatomy and physiology assignment I am doing. I need to analyse and talk about the muscle and joint movements that happen when throwing a dart ( top half of the body only) could anybody please help?

Oh my gosh, that must have taken you a while to think up! How did you come up with something so brilliant and useful?

I’ve heard worse from better 🙃
Most activities are rotational in the cross over plane and longitudinal pivot and the two joints fundamentally included are the elbow and shoulder. The elbow is a pivot joint shaped by the humerus and ulna. The shoulder is a ball and attachment joint framed between the humerus and the scapula.
Arm, elbow and jaw.

How else to drink pints while leaning against a bar and talking about the bullseye dart that won the last game?
The actual answer to this would be really complex - you'll get rotational action of the whole torso and you lean forward when throwing so it includes thighs and pelvis too, as well as muscles to balance the head. Balance in general is super complex.

I suspect they just want you to say 'erm triceps' though.
I'm doing this question now. Help me please!! I'm stuck on the muscles and movements of the fingers..
