How to achieve a slim waist?
The exercises to slim your waist are those that are focused on your core muscles. Some of these exercises your personal trainer in Dubai would make you do, focus on oblique muscles that are present on the side of your stomach. Focusing on areas would then help build muscle in that area which can make your waist appear wider. The best ab workouts to add to your fitness regime would be:
Hanging Leg Raise – Keep your legs slightly bent or for a bit more of a challenge keep your legs as straight as possible and bring them up to around a 90-degree angle and then slowly back down, keeping the movement nice and controlled.
Plank – By far one of the best abdominal exercises you can do that needs no equipment. When planking be sure to keep your body in a straight line, maintain a neutral spine and avoid dropping or raising your bum. Hold for as long as possible.
Russian Twist – Adopt a sit up position and slowly twist your core from side to side. This is also a great exercise to add into a circuit.
Stomach Vacuum – Take a deep breath and suck in your stomach as if you are trying to suck it into your rib cage, hold for a few seconds and then slowly release. This is actually a great exercise for the abdominals and can be done anywhere and anytime – sat at your desk, whilst driving or adding them to your workouts.
It is also important to remember when looking to slim down our waist area that a healthy, balanced diet and a calorie deficit is needed in order to minimize our body fat percentage. Also ensuring to train the full body, including shoulders (this includes females too!) can also help to give the illusion of a smaller waist.
