In brief: Post deltoid, lats +
Major extensors include the posterior deltoid, latissimus dorsi, teres major other muscles with extension moments include the subscapularis, long head of the triceps, infraspinatus, teres minor. The sternal head of the pectoralis major can have an extensor moment when the arm is in a forward flexed, internally rotated position.
