The transverse abdominal muscle is the most important, yet perhaps the most overlooked, of all abdominal muscles. The transverse abdominals wraps around the torso like a corset, just below the rib cage. This very important muscle holds internal organs in place, provides balance and coordination for all daily movements, and stabilizes the lower back and torso during heavy lifting. But few traditional exercises address the transverse abdominal! This muscles is worked mostly by isometric contraction.
My client below consistently squezed her transverse abs during pregnancy and six months later into her postpartum period, her abs looked tight and sweet!
