One fitness goal that never seems to go out of fashion is having a tiny waist. There’s a lucky few who have hourglass genetics without much effort. But most people are left chasing what seems like an impossible dream.
If you’re struggling to shrink your waist, the answer isn’t to do more crunches. There’s one ridiculously effective exercise you probably aren’t doing.
Obligatory Diet & Exercise Stuff
Before getting to the best move for a tiny waist, you can’t really ignore the role diet and exercise play in shrinking your waist. I have to mention this stuff. It’s like a law or something.
You don’t need to starve yourself to lose a few inches off your waist. Make a few of the following changes:
– Eat less sugar
– Drink more water
– Reduce fast food
– Reduce fried food
– Avoid refined carbohydrates
– Switch to whole grain foods
– Eat more fiber (supplements/fruit/vegetables)
If you’re looking for a diet for pure fat loss, definitely give keto a try.
If you’re going to put in work at the gym, focus on cardio. Not crunches, or leg lifts, or any of that stuff. Burn lots and lots of calories.
Here’s some stuff that burns a ton of calories in only a few minutes:
#1 Move To Shrink Your Waist
The most effective way to shrink your waist isn’t by doing thousands of crunches. In fact, some oblique exercises can actually thicken your waist and make you look more blocky.
So, what’s the best thing to do?
Have you ever seen an image of a 270 pound bodybuilder with a tiny, 26 inch waist? They’re absolutely massive everywhere, except their waist.
It looks inhuman, and most associate that with freakish genetics.
But, in most cases, it’s not genetics. They manipulate their body composition to look like that by using a technique called a stomach vacuum.
But you don’t have to be a massive bodybuilder, or fitness professional to take advantage of this trick. Anyone, and everyone can do a simple two minute exercise a few times per week to get a smaller waist.
Here’s what it looks like on a non-bodybuilder type person:
How To Do A Stomach Vacuum
Stomach vacuums focus on the inner abdominal wall, creating a “hollowed” effect to shrink your waist. Here’s a good video by K’s Perfect Fitness explaining how to do a stomach vacuum from three different positions. Standing, sitting, and lying down.
