Tips for small waist

anyone got any good tips for keeping a small waist whilst adding mass and improving your V taper? Is it mainly genetics that detirmin this?
I heard a few people who do not desire to have a big waist cut out the deadlifts. would SLDL affect your waist size much?

    I deadlift heavy alot and havent noticed an increase in waist size. Most probably genetics.

    I'm considering cutting out deadlifts due to my waist looking too thick. I'm cutting at the moment and I have what looks like love handles, but they feel solid, unlike fat.

    I've been reading around about this issue but most of what I've read seems to be that deads are the be all and end all of back development.

    It would be difficult, if only psychologically, for me to drop deadlifts, though.

    Do those deads!, actually I don't mind thickening my waist i couldn't give a damn about v shapes just being "hench init" lol

    Maybe change your deads to strength reps eg 3 x 3, 3 x 4 or 4 x 5?
