More Information about the Transverse Abdominis
The transverse abdominis is also commonly written as the transversus abdominis.
The transverse abdominis muscle works together with the obliques to increase
intra-abdominal pressure which supports the vertebral column in some exercises.
The transverse abdominis muscle is
assisted by the rectus abdominis and obliques, in holding the abdomen flat.
