It is interesting to me how people tend to group their workout objectives into muscle groups. These usually include the arms (or more specifically, the biceps), chest, legs and the all-important abs’.
And the question everyone wants to know with regard to each group is, 'How do I work out the muscles to maximum effect?'
Well, to achieve a productive workout, the first priority is to understand what you are targeting when you exercise.
So, when discussing the abs', we are essentially talking about three key muscle groups in the form of the obliques, transverse abdominis and the rectus abdominis (see below).
