Thickening Trunk

I used to be quite fat and since sorting my diet & exercise out i am now much leaner/muscular, however i found that the skin around mid section looks "loose" or not at tight as it does on the rest of my body.

Would training obliques thicken my trunk? Could anyone suggest any good exercises for this?

Thanks.

    training the obliques heavily would make ur waist look thick....so i dont no if u want that.....most men store most of their fat around the stomach area...so im guessing u just still have to lose a bit more fat with tweaking ur diet and adding some cardio....remember u cant spot reduce, so just because u train ur obliques hard doesnt mean u will get super lean there.....

    Im not fat and i know that you cant spot reduce, what i mean was increasing the muscle in that area to fill out the space where there was once fat.

    What are the most effective exercises for obliques? I currently do twists on a steep decline while holding a light weight to my chest.

    Got to go with Italian Babe here. You will just need to work the Obliques and stay on the diet. Working the muscles won't thicken your trunk too much and you could try dumbell side raises. these will definately work the obliques.

    Keep at it.
