Basic Muscles Explanation
The long and fine abdominal rectus goes vertically along the abdominal wall, starting in the pubic bone and ending in the cartilage of the fifth, sixth and seventh ribs and the breastbone. The two halves are separated by a tendinosus parallel band, crossed by three tendinosus lines that give the characteristical divisions in a defined middle section.
