The abdominals are essential for the stability of the pelvis, the orientation of the bust and offers a important help in most exercises composed of the upper body. They consist of the right, the transverse and the oblique.

To have the abdominals drawn and massive, it is essential to vary the exercises to strengthen the different parts of the abdomen. A healthy lifestyle and a proper diet will be just as important as muscle work.

The fat cells responsible for the fat storage are in front of your abdominals, so working the abdominals with too much fat on the stomach will only swell your stomach. It will then be necessary to review your food plan.

This isolation exercise will strengthen your rectus abdominis and your transverse.
