Water Retention and Looking “Dry”

The more water that collects inbetween your skin and your muscles, the less defined and chiseled your physique will be. This effect can be observed after eating a salty meal, where this overload in sodium causes the body to retain excess fluid, causing a bloated and puffy appearance. This art of manipulating water levels can make a huge difference on stage and is usually the deciding factor in which bodybuilder finishes 6th or 1st.

You can apply the tricks in this post not just when entering competitions to get that edge over your fellow competitors; but also to social events i.e. wanting to look that extra bit shredded at the beach. read more

Sculpting the Adonis Belt aka “V Lines”

The adonis belt is often referred to as the “sex v”, due to the flirtatious lines that trail to the below area. These Michelangelo-like creases are without doubt one of the highlights of the abdominal region.

The adonis belt is part of the inguinal ligament structure. Essentially, the lines that create the “v shape” are part of this ligament. Although the adonis belt being seen is due to this ligament, the ligament itself isn’t the cause for the lines being visible. After all, everybody has this ligament, but not everybody has a strong defined Adonis belt. read more

Abs Workout for Killer Intercostal Muscles

Intercostal muscles are one of the best features of a six pack. The intercostal muscles are located between the ribs, and their function is to help the chest cavity shrink and expand, enabling you to breathe effectively.

There are two factors that result in chiseled intercostal muscles. One is to have low body fat. To be specific, intercostal muscles will become most visible with sub 8% body fat, for a male. For women, sub 13% body fat, is ideal. Losing the fat around this area is most of the work, as these extra layers will hide all definition. The second factor is to actually build the intercostal muscles, via abs exercises. This will enable them to become thicker and more visible when low body has been attained. read more
