Oblique training and side bends
Will they really make the waist bigger? I was thinking that they might helps for squats and deadlifts.

I can't give an opinion on if my core training caused it or if its just genetics but I have a really large waist (35 at 7-8%bf)
And I do a decent of oblique training(twice a week). Mostly angled sidebends and a torso twister machine at the gym.
only jesus knows......
We lift weights and manipulate our diets so that we'll look good naked. Sure, it's healthy too, and we'll probably live a longer and more productive life than the average guy, but mostly it's about the naked thing.

did side bends today. Only once a week for me. Not trying to make them bigger, only stimulate them to keep them awake and tight.

I try to emulate Chuck Sipes' ab routine. I do that by incorporating incline situps, incline oblique situps and ab wheel in my workout. Then before I go to bed each night I do situps, oblique situps, crunches, and jack knives with the ab wheel in between each of those.
Sipes' ab routine 2-3x a day for the year leading up to the 1968 IFBB Mr. World, in which he won best abs as well as overall:

My Ab Training is as follows
1) Sit Ups- usually in the range of 5 sets and usually to 25 reps
2) Crunches - 3 or more sets always to the range of 100+ Reps
3) Weighted Side Bends - always 3 sets with 45 to 50lb plate
4) Ab Wheel
5) Weighted V-ups
6) Ab crunch Machine - 80 to 100lbs
7) incline sit ups with Weight Plate while trainer punches stomach for Conditioning
I usually work Abs 3 times a week sometimes 4
