Heavy deads+heavy squats= thick midsection?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Heavy deads+heavy squats= thick midsection? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: what's your opinion? Ever since I started training legs with my buddy who's a powerlifter(several months now), I've noticed being thicker around the middle. This, despite having leaned out a couple pounds. I'm lookin leaner everywhere but there. Its not like I look fatter, just thicker or "girthier." Hey, its a word.

    It is a definate posibility, when you squat and dead, your obliques have to work to support that load. Your obliques being a muscle, like anything else, can and will hypertrophy.

    Yeah power lifters seem to be "heavier". If you do sqauts and deads like power lifters it might make you bigger. But has your diet, or ab routine changed in the past seven months, or has it stayed the same?

    i was directing it too omega.

    as for your question.

    the whole midsection is used in both exercises. to stabalize pull hold etc etc

    very effective trunk exercises

    Yeah I'm thinking WTF too!! Your midsection does a similar job in both lifts so they should have the same effect. How the hell do you get smaller by doing deadlifts???!!!
