Back and Abdominal Muscles

When erecting a transmission mast, steel ropes are tied all around to it. Without it, the mast would tip over. The spinal column needs such struts. The back and abdominal muscles essentially perform this task. The stronger they are, the lesser the spinal disks, joints and tendons will be unfavorably stressed.

The weaker the back muscles are, the more exposed the function elements of the spinal column are to unfavorable loads. Weak abdominal muscles let the belly swell by pushing the intestines forward . The belly weight pulls along the lumbar spinal column and distorts it excessively to the inside. The pelvic girdle tips forward. The spinal column seeks to balance itself through a correspondingly stronger outside curve of the thoracic spinal column. If the muscle atrophy continues, it can lead to a continuous poor posture of the spinal column. Strong stomach muscles contribute to straight posture and to the stabilization of the spinal column.
