    Ok so I have been cutting for a month now, I have dripped down from 186 to about 175 in 4 and half weeks. Nothing too strict, with the weekend being my cheating days. So far I have averaged out at about about -2.5 pounds a week, so I think everything is going good. Theres one thing though, no matter how much fat I loose everythwere, I still do not see my obliques cutting in and tapering off at my lower abs. Now I know people who have a higher BF percent yet they seem to have those lines there. Are there any exercises that I could do to maybe develop those muscles? If theres any confusion about what exactly Im talking about, Ill post a picture of someone who has them.

    There's an exercise that i do, its like a baseball swing. You jump on what would normally be a tricep pulldown pulley machine, but instead, grab it at the highest point you can set it at, with the rope handles. Stand to the side, and essentially pretend your swinging a baseball bat at a downward chop. Make sure there's resistance throughout the whole range of motion, and concentrate on using your core, rather than your arms.

    I'm not sure whether you're asking for help with your obliques, or lower abs, but if you want your lower abs to show better, try working reverse crunches into your workout.

    you DEFINITELY can't spell, and you DEFINITELY should draw some lines on that picture so people don't get confused as to which lines you are talking about
