3 Common Waist-Trimming Approaches Used By Gym Goers

Aug 20, 2008
People, most particularly women, are conscious about how their waist measures. Every woman surely wants to have a 23-inch or 24-inch waistline. During younger years, that's possible. As you age, the tendency is that your metabolism slows down and your waistline becomes wider. This is a result of post-pregnancy, bad diet or complete absence of workout.

To at least take out the excess fats on your belly, you can run or jog for 30 minutes to one hour every single day. That won't be enough though. You need to execute exercises that truly aim focus on the belly and hip areas. Your beer belly or wide waistline will be gone if you consistently follow the steps below.

1.A choice of cardio exercises done in one hour and on a daily basis can burn the fats in your belly. Do it with speed and intensity so that it's quicker to sweat out and break down fats.

Your options are treadmill runs, high-low impact aerobic session, stepper machine, climber machine, elliptical machine, and dancing. Your choice must be what you like doing, not that you are forced to do so.

Doing a cardio exercise for 20 minutes is merely conditioning, it's not effective in trimming your waist. But doing it for one hour and beyond will do best in expelling belly fats out. Belly dancing is also another good cardio exercise that targets the abs.

2.Crunches are usually done after minutes of cardio. If too much cardio is not what you like, you can just run for 20 minutes and do the floor crunches afterwards.

By crunches, it means lying flat on the floor and bending your body so that your knees and forehead can meet halfway. Repetitions of crunches should be done slow enough to feel the contraction on your abdomen. You can do different positions to maximize results. Side crunches will trim inches down, and so will leg raise and squatting. Do these all and you will trim inches on your waistline.

3.Doing intervals of 20-minute sprints can be effective when mixed with long slow distance (LSD) technique where you can exercise in your fat burning zone at 60 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate.

You can also mix long slow tread mill runs with stepper intervals. This idea of mixing cardio routines can increase your heart rate and trim your waist at the same time. After which, you can manipulate the abs machines to do abdomen resistance training to feel abs contraction intensely.

Crunches, intense cardio, abs machine usage, all these are effective to trim your waist only if you do them consistently and appropriately. Also, you need to cut down on soda, sweets and carbohydrates to get quicker results.
