When it comes to reaching your fitness goals, attaining a slim waist has to to be one of the top priorities. A slim waist can completely transform your physique, adding a toned sexy look. Now there are a wide variety of different ways you can go about achieving this, some better than others.
We've listed some top tips on how you can go about achieving your desired waist size effectively, and safely.
Strength training is an significant part of waist fat reduction. When you lift weights, you build muscle. By adding muscle, you increase your metabolic rate and burn more calories over a 24-hour time frame. Your best bet is to do a full-body workout to target as much muscle as possible.
Instead of doing one exercise over and over again, perform multiple exercises with different movement patterns to work your waist area fully. This will not cause much fat loss, but it will tone and tighten your waistline as you lose weight. Do exercises such as reverse crunches, hanging leg raises, bicycle maneuvers, back extensions and crunches.
Regular waist size measurements will not only allow you to track your progress but will also motivate you when you start to see progress. Starting at your belly button, wrap a tape measure all the way around your waist. Exhale, but do not suck in your stomach. Take down the measurement. This will act as your baseline waist measurement with which to compare future measurements. As you make progress, comparison to this baseline will help motivate you.
