External Obliques: The external obliques are paired muscles located in the lateral or side abdominal area that help to form the waist. The external obliques originate on the lower eight ribs and insert of the iliac crest, abdominal aponeurosis to the linea alba. The external obliques flex the thorax, compress and support the abdomen, and rotate and flex the vertebral column and thorax laterally to the opposite side.
Weak external obliques can contribute to the effect of "love handles".
Conditions that can afflict the external obliques include myalga, rupture, tears, strains, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, neuromuscular diseases, lacerations and contusions.
