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