What muscles are in the abdomen?

Answer

Stomach or abdominal muscles are a major concern of women and a large focus of exercise, as loose abdominal muscles can result in a flabby belly. The oblique muscles are common muscles that are targeted by exercise and are located on the outer abdominals. Toning then can help shape a woman. The transverse abdominis muscle is the central stomach muscle that stabilizes the trunk of the body. The abdominal muscles can extend all the way from the ribs to the pelvis. Diagrams of stomach muscles can be found online at sites like Internet Health and Fitness Database.
