Obliques: The obliques are paired muscles located in the lateral or side abdominal area that help to form the waist. Weak obliques can contribute to the effect of "love handles". The obliques include the external obliques and the internal obliques.

Conditions that can afflict the obliques include myalga, rupture, tears, strains, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, neuromuscular diseases, lacerations and contusions.
