    How do I get the "V" (lower abs, pelvic region)

    Hey, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me some excersises to do in order to get the "V" that all the girls go crazy for. If you don't know what Im talking about, its the lines you get around your hips below your abs. Hopefully someone knows what im talking about anyway haha. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Has mainly to do with bodyfat. Skinny people who never workout can have it. But if you want exercises to target that area, target your hip flexors muscle -- hanging leg raises are pretty good.

    But here a tip: start working out for yourself, and do what YOU want... not what other people want. That attitude will get you further than a little v-line..

    Im sure if guys like you heard that girls liked guys with no traps and a pencil neck, that you would be on here asking how to get that. Seriously...

    I appreciate the advice, thanks. I should of included that my girlfriend thinks its very sexy and I promised her that I'd at least try this summer to work on it for her (probably a stupid promise on my part but hey, it happens). Other than this, I do workout for what I want. Thanks again though!

    lol word

    Taking notes from educated folks is great. Then twist the advice slightly, not to disrupt the essence of the point and modify it to your personal body.

    You will see results and begin to realize bodybuilding or strength training isnt all about a six pack or v-shape (not that it is bad or anything just its somewhat the only thing some folks want to achieve and call themselves lifters )

    Good luck!

    well she is usually pretty generous so i thought it was the least i could do for her. i could always lie and say "i worked at it real hard this summer but nothing seemed to work." which is fine with me. i just thought id ask and get some opinions from you guys. im guessing my BF% is about 12 right now so I could stand to lose a little of that...hell, its healthier anyways. Ive been bulking up this last semester so I could go for some toning this summer.

    some other thing that you did that caused your bodyfat to lower is what made that visible... not the crunches.

    aka fat distribution. Some people may not carry as much fat in that area as other.

    Fat distribution is also largely affected by hormonal levels and balances.

    well then whoever measured your bf is wrong. i'd say you're 8-9% just from looking at that picture.
    If what I see does not amaze me, I am not looking hard enough.

    Shoot the person who did your measurment. Or if you are stepping on one of them scales dude they are crap!
    Just saying!
    Never argue with an idiot. He will bring you down to his level and then beat you on experience.

    I agree. BF % and genetics... I have a really hard time to get that V, it's almost impossible for me to have it even in a very low bf (at least like i want it).

    Everything u can do to help that V appear is the following:
    - Low ur bf
    - Workout ur inferior abs. Hanging leg raises and decline reverse crunches are the best in my opinion.

    Never the less, the biggest issue for the V is genetics (yea i know, it sucks...)

    Hanging leg raises 10-12 supersetted with Weighted leg lifts 10-12, 3 sets each minimal rest in between, also genetics is a key factor and diet

    Easy:
    1) check your diet: a health diet of veggies, fruit, meat, fish,...
    2) train hard: lots of overhead work for the abs, heavy deadlifts/squat

    That's it.
