Pointing out that abs exercises are not without risk, she reviews the most common abdominal exercises, such as crunches and leg lifts and explains how to avoid injury to the neck, lower back, pelvic floor, diaphragm, prostate and internal organs as well as how to protect these vital structures with appropriate abdominal work.

Exploring this often misunderstood region of the body in her trademark anatomical style, Calais-Germain details the muscular structures that make up the abs, revealing that strength alone is not the sole factor in a flat stomach.
