global muscles

global muscles, muscles located toward the front of the external and internal obliques, quadratus lumborum's lateral fibers, erector spinae's lateral segments, and rectus abdominus. These muscles control the ability of the spine to resist bending and impact the alignment of the spine by complying and balancing two imposing forces.
