People nowadays are seeing the benefits of staying fit not only because they feel healthy and capable of conquering everything that life throws at them but also because they look good in the process too. Unfortunately, the hardest part of our body to remove those excess fats is always the midsection but don’t you worry. There are plenty of waist-trimming workouts that you can do to slowly achieve your goal. If you want to get started on this, try these exercises out.

  • Side plank-up. Lie on your left side with a rolled towel between your thighs and your torso propped up with your left elbow and forearm. Your legs should be stacked too. If you want to make this workout easier, stagger your legs so that your left foot is in front of the right for a wider base. Lift hips off the floor to form a straight line from your shoulders to your feet. Squeeze the towel as you hold this pose for a few seconds. Go back to your first position and repeat.
  • Kick, twist, and arabesque. Sit with your feet and palms on the floor with your fingers facing backwards. Lift your hips off the floor so that you will be on your toes with your left arm extended and your right leg raised with your right inner thigh facing the ceiling. Rotate your torso to put your left palm back on the floor as well as your right knee then raise your left leg behind you. Reverse your movement to go back to your first position. Repeat.
  • Round back. Place a folded towel on the floor and sit on it with your shoulder blades pressed against a wall with your back rounded. Your knees should be bent and your feet flat on the floor. Position your hands on the floor near your hips with your fingertips pressing down. Engage your abs to lift your feet off the floor, bringing your knees toward your chest. Straighten your legs so that your toes will be pointing upward. Do 10 pulses then bring your legs an inch closer to the wall then move them back an inch. Go back to your first position and repeat.
  • Tuck and inner thigh kick. Sit with your feet and palms on the floor with your fingers pointing backwards. Lift your hips then place your right ankle over your left knee. Lift your left arm as if you are making muscle. Push your hips up slightly as you remove your right ankle from your left knee then kick it straight towards the ceiling. Go back to your first position and repeat.

 These are just a few examples of waist-trimming exercises that you should try out today in order to bring back shape to your waist. Make sure that you follow the correct form for each exercise so you will be able to get the most out of these workouts for a trimmer and slimmer figure.
