We all know the struggle in trying to eliminate the fats that have settled around our midsection. You’ve probably tried all sorts of exercises to burn through them to reveal a smaller waist but to no avail. Before you do begin in removing the stubborn fats around your midsection, the first thing you need to take into consideration is that you should aim for the right bodyweight first based on your height, age, and sex. Keep in mind that there is no spot treatment or workout to achieve a smaller waist but rather you need to focus on your entire body. Once you do manage this, then these workouts should be done as well.
Forward Kick Punch
In this exercise, you should start by bringing your right leg back with your weight placed on the ball of your foot. Keep your back straight and your arms raised at chest height with your hands in fists. Bend your left knee a bit. Now push down on your right foot as you kick it forward while punching your left fist forward at the same time. Go back to your first position and repeat 10 to 15 times. Switch sides and repeat.
Another exercise that can help you make your waist smaller is the Russian twist. For this workout, you should sit on the floor. Make sure that your feet are flat on the floor and that your knees are bent. Keep your back straight and your core engaged. Lean backwards until you have distributed your weight on your butt. Now lift your feet off the floor until you have gone into a V position. While keeping your core engaged twist your torso to the left then twist to the right. This counts as one rep. You will need to 10 reps to complete a set.
Horizontal Wood Chops
You should also do the horizontal wood chops if you are trying to make your waist smaller. Stand with your feet at hip width apart and your back straight. Bring both arms to your left with fingers clasping one another as if you are holding an ax. Now twist to your right while raising your right knee towards your chest to do a side crunch. Go back to your first position and repeat 10 times. Switch to the other side and do another 10.
This is going to be tough on your core but it will actually work out your entire body while you are at it. You will need to lie down on the floor on your back with your legs in a table top pose. Raise your upper back from the floor with your hands positioned behind your ears and elbows pointing out. Twist your torso to the left to bring your right elbow towards your left knee which you should bring towards your chest. Extend your right leg at the same time. Do the same with the other side to complete one rep. You will need to do 10 reps or more if you can manage. Make sure that your core is engaged throughout.
