The abdominal muscles are a group of six muscles that extend from
several places on the ribs to several places on the pelvis.
The abdominals provide movement and support the core abdominals also
known "as the trunk".
They also help in the breathing process.
Ab Muscles are Special
Ab muscles provide good postural support. For
example,the ab muscles called the rectus abdominus, gives the six pack abs
definition and look when it is worked to a high level of physical
Nevertheless, the more closer and deeper the muscle is to the spine the
particular abdominal muscle is, the more it can have an effect over the
posture it can have, and this often causes a healthy back.
The six muscles in the abdominal all affect body posture. The deeper
muscles are located such as the muscle being closure to the spine, the
more stronger of an effect that it can have, therefore, the greater the
ability it will have
for creating and maintaining a good healty spine.
are the six types of abdominal muscles:
Transversus Abdominis - The Deep Ab
The transverse abdominus muscle is the deepest of all
the six ab muscles. It can have a serious effect on the body posture.
This muscle cannot be touch from
the outside. It wraps all around the torso, creating an effect close to
back support belt.
The Internal Oblique Muscles - Deals With
internal obliques are a pair of muscles that are placed on both sides
of the torso. They are the other deepest muscle, after the transversus
..........Similar to the
transversus muscle, they affect body posture.
Ther external obliques are located on the both
sides of the torso. The
external oblique muscles have less of an effect on the body
posture. then the muscles listed above.
abdominus muscle is a very important ab muscle. The rectus and
the external obliques muscle have an affect on the body
posture. The rectus abdominis muscle is responsible for the six pack
abs definition look in fit people.
Spinal Action on the Abs
muscles are called spinal flexors. Their main purpose is to bend
the spine forward. The back
muscles counterbalance the action of the abs, and are called spinal
extensors. What this means is that when the abdominal muscle shorten to
the spine, the back muscles are put to stretch,
and then the opposite occurs.
The Abs and It's Breathing
The abdominals are a participant in the whole
process, especially when exhaling. These muscles help force the air out
the lungs by depressing the thorax.
