The ‘sex lines’ workout for men

The 'sex lines' workout for men

“Sex lines”—aka abdominal V lines which every woman lusts for on a man—are one of the hardest areas to sculpt. That V-line is created where two muscles meet: the lower abs and obliques. So in order to make them pop, you need to perform specific exercises that hit both muscle groups.

The six exercises below will hit your lower core without causing any harm to your back. Do the first three moves as one workout or at the end of your regular full-body routine. Do the last three moves on a separate day, again as one cohesive workout or as a finisher to your regular routine.

But remember: The key to seriously sculpt abs is by eating clean meals. And by that I mean, you could be doing the greatest abs workout ever, and they’ll never be seen because of a layer of fat over them.

#1: Hanging leg raise

Directions: Hang from a pull-up bar with hands slightly wider than shoulder-width and palms facing forward, then raise your knees to your chest. To make it harder, keep your legs straight out in front of you as you raise them (as pictured).

Sets: Do 3 sets and aim for as many reps as you can before hitting technical failure (bad form, resting 20-30 seconds in between each set

#2: Ab wheel roll-outs

Directions: Kneel on the floor, grip the ab wheel, and roll it out directly in front of you until you lose tension in your core, then roll yourself back to start.

Sets: Do 3 sets, 15 reps each resting 20-30 seconds in between each set

#3: Barbell Russian twist

Directions: Grab the barbell in front of you with both hands, feet shoulder-width apart. Swing the bar to your left, and then swing to the right—that’s one rep.

Sets: Do 3 sets, 15 reps each resting 20-30 seconds in between each set

#4: Reverse crunches

Directions: Lie on your back with arms, shoulders, and legs extended out off the floor. Bend your hips and knees toward your chest, and then crunch your torso up and off the floor. Pause, then return to start. Use a resistance band to make it harder (as pictured.)

Sets: Do 3 sets and aim for as many reps as you can before hitting technical failure (bad form, resting 20-30 seconds in between each set

#5: Heavy 1-arm suitcase carries 

Directions: As you stand next to heavy barbell, bend down, sinking your hips back, and grab ahold of the bar. Stand back up. Now tighten your core and slightly bend forward while keeping your back straight—this will engage your abs muscles. Walk 50 yards. Switch sides and walk back 50 yards. That’s one rep.

Sets: Do 3 sets, 15 reps each resting 20-30 seconds in between each set

#6: Cable crunches

Directions: Position yourself facing the machine, a few feet away, on both knees. Now grip the rope in front of you, and crunch your body in so your forearms come to your knees and your head meets the floor.

Sets: Do 3 sets, 15 reps each resting 20-30 seconds in between each set
