    I have been cranking up the ab workouts for the summer and have noticed my love handles ( which are muscle) are getting bigger faster than my center abs. I see some pics on here of guys that have that same thing.

    I am not looking for that "thick" look around the waist. I would rather be as narrow as possible down there.

    Is there anyone else aware of this and are doing workouts that focus of center only?

    Are you doing weighted side bends? From what I've read it's NOT necessary to use extra weights which could cause a thickening of the muscles.

    I know what you mean but I am not doing those . I just do side planks as part of the white party abworkout. Check out this video on YouTube:

    Maybe it does focus of the love handles especially the side curls.
