    The pic is a girl, but I've seen several people (mostly males) that just have enormous "lower obliques" like she does. What's the best way to target these muscles?

    You think throwing in a twisting movement would help?

    Im really not the person to ask. I dont know. :hs:

    I just tried these on my pullup bar in my den and they do work the area you specified, along with the top of the abs. Concentrate on using your abs to bring your midsections up and avoid using your legs to swing yourself up.

    I don't know where you'd put in a twisting movement. I tried twisting at the top of the rep and almost fell off. :mamoru:

    You hang and bring your legs up to the finishing part of the picture you showed, but then instead of bringing them down to start another rep, you do a "windshield wiper" motion.

    There is no reason to go all the way up. Feet straight ahead will do the job just fine.

    if you do that, your abs are merely acting as stabilizers

    Then what exactly are those? Not trying to be defensive, just curious.
