Bodybuilding 101: Anatomy of Abdominals

Anatomy of Abdominals -
Anatomy of Abdominals –

I’m studying for my personal training certification right now, which means I’m reviewing basic anatomy.

I thought it might be helpful to post this because a lot of us hear terms like, “abs” or “lats” and have no idea where they are on the body.  I’ll be posting labels for each major muscle group over the next few days.

Here are some common exercises that work the abdominals (abs):

Sit ups

Reverse Crunches


Russian Twists

Oblique Crunches

Dumbbell Side Bends


Hope you found this helpful!
