I was under the assumption that after certain point in your life your hips, like your shoe size, stopped. I'm no moron. I know people's waist measurements get bigger and bigger as they get fatter and fatter but I was under the impression that they weren't undergoing much bone growth.
I always thought the only reason pro bodybuilder's waists expanded was from irresponsible use of Human Growth Hormone or other hormones that could kickstart bone growth after puberty and cause jaw growth and skull growth (Jay Cutler and Barry Bonds come to mind).
But today, after shopping for pants, I've found that not just my legs but my waist has grown. And that's not gonna help my hopes of having a good V-taper.
I'm lean enough to have a six pack and serration in my pecs and shoulders. I can see my pelvic bone. I really can't understand why my waist has expanded.
Is there anyway I can reverse my waist expansion while continuing to put on mass? Some sort of different ab training? I don't think I have weak transverse abdominals because I'm not a reverse breather unlike most people.
