We all know that everybody wants an amazing V-Shaped body, especially a fantastic core and abs. A tiny muscle you might not even known it exists, keep on coming in top!

The transversus abdominis is that deep v-shaped cut in the abs of bodybuilders. Also known as “sex lines”, the transversus abdominis wraps around your body, supporting your spine, and the muscle’s visible edges are an indicator of a super-strong core and low body fat.

There’s benefit to honing these coveted markers of fitness beyond just looking good. After your shoulders, the transversus abdominis is the next muscle to engage during lifting exercises. Your v-shape might as well be re dubbed “lifting lines”.
