Trim that waist

For a lot of people, the waistline is one of the most challenging areas of the body to trim down with exercise. Some people succeed in losing unwanted weight and shedding off the flabs, but comes to a disappointing shape of a tub when it comes to the waistline.

What does it take to get that perfect curve?

Through the years, many exercises have been designed to work the waist and all have one common movement that makes it effective: Rotation. Apparently, twisting the midsection repetitively burn off the calories while working wonders on the waistline.

Floor exercises that involve twisting and curling are supposedly effective waist-trimmers.

Working out the obliques is another suggestion for working out the waistline. The Obliques are the muscles on the sides essential for the twisting and rotation movements. The more you use your oblique muscles during the workout, the bigger the effects on the waistline.

Fitness experts may also tick V-sit exercises combined with rotation movements. One particular workout suggests using a weighted ball as you twist from side to side.

How effective are these exercises, really, in helping you with your waist? Is the twisting really the important element in these workouts?

Let’s get one thing straight. Fact is, you can’t really spot target the waistline or any other individual part of the body for that matter. The body has a natural way of responding on its own to any exercise. That’s why when you do a particular workout, there’s usually more than one area that develops.

For men, the waist is always the last to go when it comes to fitness. For women, it’s really the hips and the thighs; the waistline comes next. It’s just the way it is. If you really want to work out a curve, what you want to do are total body exercises that result in greater calorie-reduction and burn more fats.  Twists and rotations can only get you so far.

The most effective exercises are usually the harder ones, the ones that people heave groans for when asked to perform them. Plank holds and oblique exercises, squats, pull ups and bench presses are the best calorie burners that can result to great waist trim downs.
