The abdomen is the region of the body located between the chest (thorax) and the pelvis. It contains vital organs such as the stomach, liver, intestines, and more. During abdominal breathing this area is allowed to expand increasing the volume of air able to be inhaled. Several major muscles for balance and posture are located in this area including the rectus abdominis and the obliques.
