I want to make the area around my waist and above that wider. What exercises do that?
Grab it, pick it up, and bite into it. Put it down, wait a few seconds and repeat.
Sorry I thought you were talking about your actual stomach and I could't imagine why any one would want a larger stomach.
I take it that you're referring to your obliques? Try Saxon side-bends. Also, you'll want to work on your lats in order to really look wider.
I think it's worth mentioning that most people don't want more width. The goal of most bodybuilders is a narrow waist, because it makes you look even bigger.
Having a tiny waist with a nice V-Taper looks awesome. I wouldnt worry about your obliques, they will come with heavy compund movements. Plus when your bulking, you will fill out a bit more.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge
