    A.K.A: The "Apollo's Belt" or "Adonis Belt".

    Some are genetically inclined to have them 'show', others achieve it from diet and hard exercise.

    Either way, I like 'em!

    A.K.A. as 'cum gutters'....vulguar, but descriptive. icon_wink.gif

    I still have my Apollo's Belt, but I had to let it out a notch or two...

    I normally just do wood-choppers and overhead crunches on a cable machine. sorry I don't have any vids, but I think they should be pretty easy to look up

    Paleo diet will do it with moderat exercise. Cardio is not the best way to go.

    Mostly diet, like cutting out carbs the second half of the day [has helped me] (assuming that the rest of the diet is well balanced).
    Also, hanging leg raises done slowly and with good form- no swinging and no use of inertia.

    windshield wipers aren't that difficult if you have the strength to hold yourself in the position.

    It's interesting to see the cultural shift in vanity muscles over the years. Back in the 1990s no one wanted big obliques. The fear was that it would make your waist look bigger. The vanity muscles of the 1990s were pectorals. Now in the 2010s it seems that the current vanity muscles are the obliques. Probably originates from the fashion of sagging pants and exposed torsos.

    Check out this underwear model guy. He's got the obliques but no chest, arms, or legs. It's disproportionate. Some find it attractive. I prefer different proportions, but make your body into what you want. Just put some thought into proportion, please.

    If you want to hit obliques in compound exercises to bring it all together instead of isolations, do heavy squats and deadlifts. Then they're worked in concert with a host of other muscles.

    Weighted captains chair leg lifts and have no fat. Wind shield wipers too.

    I actually just have one no work needed.

    I thought this was going to be about how to get in some girl's pants and make her V pop. Boy, was I wrong!

    Hip flexor machine, swimming (hip flexor exercise), running (hip flexor exercise), and obliques.

    Most guys don't know which machine is the hip flexor machine at the gym because "it's for girls."

    It never really occurred to me to try and "pop" the adonis belt. I guess I'm one of those lucky one that just happens to have them unintentionally (in terms of having it shown.) Yay!

    I thought the 1980s were about pecs and size, the 1990s about abs, long hair and a leaner Tarzan look with obliques being millenial.

    What was the era of fashionably big biceps? I forget now.

    Yeah, but now they're succeeded by triceps.
