These muscles make women weak
Trained V-muscles between the groin and thighs focus exactly in the middle – and direct the view of what is between the legs. To express it, the man needs good genes, the right nutrition and a lot of training. The personal trainer and fitness coach Jörn Giersberg, known from many TV shows, explains how Mann shapes his sex symbol.
There they look for a long time and sigh: In the gym, on photos in magazines at the hairdresser or on television, well-trained and barely dressed men pose, turn their hips sideways and show their V-bars. That’s what women like. Because these muscles spray more sex than fat bodybuilding muscle packages and defined six-packs. They run along the pelvis, the groin and the thigh and point inwards precisely. That raises expectations. So get to the training.
Genes, training, nutrition, fat loss
But not every man can express these muscles as an eye-catcher. “Genetics plays a big role,” says celebrity coach Jörn Giersberg (www.figurtrainer.de). Therefore, even perfectly coordinated training helps sometimes more, sometimes less. But not only: “The body fat percentage plays a particularly important role.Who wants to express the V-bar, in addition to the right training needs a balanced diet and to cardio units to heat the fat metabolism and remove fat,” he explains essential factors.
But he specifically warns against taking male-model or body-building photos as a role model: “Professionals know how to present their V-bar, and those who want to show them have to learn to pose – models can do that.” They tighten the abdominal muscles and turn the upper body slightly, but not too far. In photos, only the right angle creates the irresistible radiance.
Cardio training vs. muscle building
The muscle groups on the lateral thigh, the adductor, and the lateral, oblique abdominal muscles shape the appearance of the V-groin. But they only become visible if there are no grams of fat sticking to the body. Men with a median figure need to lose fat and build muscle at the same time, explains Jörn Giersberg. “The fat sits in areas of the middle of the body, but it is very difficult to break down there, and it has archaic reasons: It protects our organs and warms them in the winter, so you lose cardiovascular fat everywhere – but not there.”
The problem: In very intense and frequent cardio units you lose a lot of muscle – the stature of racing cyclists and marathon runners proves that. Bodybuilders and models would therefore often resort to doping substances such as creatine, reports Giersberg. “It makes it possible to pump up muscles, even if you break down fat.” With many photos on the net and in Yellow Press magazines, where men show their V-bar, Giersberg immediately recognizes: “That can only be achieved with prohibited substances.”
Squats and side crunches
If you have a somewhat slim body and are reasonably athletic, you can practice the “seduction muscle”. Giersberg good news: The most effective exercises you can easily train at home – gym superfluous. “Squats in a wide foot position with a distance of 50 to 80 centimeters are ideal,” he recommends. “With weights, the exercise is even more effective.” The crunches recommended for abdominal training are also just right in a variation: “The upper body and the buttocks are on the ground, the legs are slightly bent, and now both knees are slightly tilted in one direction, with both legs touching, now the sides of the body hold the upper body only halfway up with the abdominal muscles.”
“Folding knife” and lunges
Also very suitable is the “folding knife”, which has been recommended for a lot of criticism for some years by sports scientists back to training: It lays down in a straight posture with straight legs on the back. The arms are stretched along the head back to the ground. Slowly, the legs are stretched a bit raised and at the same time upper body and the extended arms brought forward until the hands touch as possible the toes. The butt is the only body part that remains on the ground, arms and legs are now stretched. Hold briefly in this position, then controlled back to the starting position. “The abdominal muscles always work in a bandage, with targeted training you can set the right accents”, stresses Giersberg.
Also suitable for the V-bar are lunges as in fencing: One sets a foot a long step forward and is relaxed with slightly bent knees. Now shift your weight to the front leg and bend the knee until the knee of the back leg can briefly touch the ground. Then comes the important phase. One stretches the front leg again, pushing all the power into it. “Repeat the whole thing several times without changing the position of the front foot, and also with the weights as with the wide squats, otherwise the unit will not do enough,” explains Giersberg.
In addition to training the “seduction muscles”, these exercises have another benefit: they strengthen the muscles along the seminal canal, promote the mobility and mobility of the adductor and prevent the “soft groin” that professional footballers often injure. But all of this only helps if the diet is right: Anyone who digs sausage, burgers, beer, fries and sweets into themselves, must make no effort with the “seduction muscle” – because despite training all the fat surrounds the sexy muscles with a thick coat.
