Abs Exercises

Abs ExercisesAbs Exercises: the most effective exercises to train your abs are illustrated in detailed 3D videos. All abdominal exercises include various visual angles to simplify the correct execution of the movement.

. 

Abs Training Notes: we must clarify one thing regarding the training of this muscle; the "rectus abdominus" (straight muscle of the abdomen) is a single broad muscle, although it is often erroneously classified into upper and lower abs. In reality, these terms only indicate areas of the straight muscle that can be stimulated though targeted exercises that still work the entire straight muscle of the abdomen.

.

Elements of Abdominal Anatomy: the abdominal wall can be primarily classified into two main sections; the front section made up of only one muscle (the rectus abdominus) and the lateral section made up of three layers of muscles (external oblique, internal oblique and the traverse abdominal).
