From the pubic symphysis of the pelvis to the xiphoid process of the sternum (breastbone).

The navel (belly button) lies on the linea alba.

The linea alba is formed by aponeuroses (thin sheets of tough connective tissue) that extend from the lateral abdominal muscles as they merge midline at the front of the abdomen.

The left and right rectus abdominis muscles lie either side of the linea alba, sitting within the rectus sheath (a tunnel formed by the aponeuroses on their way to form the linea alba).

The navel is situated on the linea alba. The aponeuroses of the lateral abdominal muscles merge to form the rectus sheath enclosing the rectus abdominis muscles (two stacks of muscle sheets) before meeting in the middle to form the linea alba.

On the median plane, the linea alba is our primary guide for body alignment.

Work towards maximal flexibility and extension in the linea alba by focusing on your Base-Line muscles becoming stronger and longer.
