Number of abdominal muscles

How many abdominal muscles are there?

6

It is important to know that there are 3 layers of the abdominal wall: external oblique, internal oblique and traverse abdominis.  Keep in mind that the transversus abdominis muscle is flat and triangular.  Needless to say, the rectus abdominis muscles are long and flat.  It is interesting to know the fact that the pyramidalis muscle is small and triangular.  There are 6 abdominal muscles.  Did you know that the abdominal muscles assist in the breathing process?
