If you’re not familiar with this muscle, sign up for the military, your drill sergeants will be very aware of how to make it sore. Drill sergeants love exercises that involve the Transverse Abdominus because when this muscle is strong, your back and stomach are strong. In order to obtain 6 pack abs, this muscle must be strong. I have to admit, I was doing sit ups for most of my adult life, but when I reached 30 I realized that my ab muscles were getting harder to see. The Transverse Abdominus is connected to your back, ribs and pelvis. After doing a thorough internet search, I found many techniques and exercises for strengthening the Transverse Abdominus.

Rage Against the Machine: How to Switch from Exercise Machines to Free Weights

Unless you can transform into a mac truck and fight the Deceptacons, or you’re a habit building robot, I don’t want to hear it. Every commercial gym in America is LOADED with treadmills, ellipticals, and dozens of weight lifting machines (aimed to hit every individual muscle you have).
