When it comes to working your abdominal muscles, not all exercises are created equal.

While some exercises will target your rectus abdominis — the outer abdominal muscles that hold your internal organs in place and create the appearance of the ‘six pack’ many crave, others will hit the transverse abdominis, the deeper core muscles that play an important role when it comes to stabilizing the trunk and protecting your spine. There’s also the obliques that run along the outside of your waist and allow you to twist and turn.
