Abdominal exercise

Abdominal exercises are those that affect the abdominal muscles (colloquially known as the stomach muscles or "abs").

Effects
Abdominal exercises are useful for building the abdominal muscles. This is useful for improving performance with certain sports, back pain, and for withstanding abdominal impacts (e.g., taking punches). According to a 2011 study, abdominal muscle exercises are known to increase the strength and endurance of the abdominal muscles.
