What is waist training?
Waist training is a process that involves wearing tight waist training cincher, corset or slimming garment to cinch in your waistline.
It’s been used for centuries to give your figure a more exaggerated hourglass look by making your waist smaller. A smaller or skinny waist accentuates your hips and bust giving you a curvier appearance.
Why do waist Training?
All the exercise in the world, if done incorrectly or don’t target your problem area, will NEVER give you the shape you want. You have to re-train your muscles a certain way if you want them to have different shape and size. Just dieting doesn’t work either. If you are a pear shape and weigh 150 pounds, you can go on a diet, starve and lose 30 pounds, but guess what… you are a 120 pound pear. You shape is still like a pear!
If you want to change your shape, you need to use a system that can actually help you do that physically. That is why waist training is so popular and has grown by leaps and bounds worldwide.
Is it safe?
If done properly, yes. Waist training not only helps to create a smaller waist, but it also helps support abdominal lower back muscles. We are not talking about extreme corset training started by Louis VI of France who wanted to create an artificial womanly shape. And with anything, there are people who misuse the art. It’s always wise to check with your doctor and get regular check-ups to ensure that things are progressing safely.
How Long Does It Take?
Body Shaping takes time. Using your Waist Training System is a commitment. It takes time to see results. You won’t see permanent results in a couple of weeks.
You must be consistent with wearing your trainers, watching your diet, drinking your water, at least 1-2 quarts per day. My clients and I use detoxing system to keep our digestion smooth, our colon cleansed and lower belly flat.
Every body is different, and every body is unique. The way your body changes may be totally different than your girlfriend’s. The progress of reshaping the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the waist takes time. Waist training is highly dependent on your core density of the distance between the top of the pelvic bone and the rib cage, the flexibility of your cartilage and your consistency of wearing your garments.
Typically my clients will see a difference in four to eight weeks when they are following my diet plan, taking a good fat burner and detoxing with my tea. Then it takes about six months for their shape to really kick into starting to be permanent mode.
If they don’t change their diet, exercise or follow my secret abdominal move to fatten the abdominal-wall, they don’t see as great a result. Be patient with yourself and realize that non-surgical body modifications are a long-term commitment, but well worth it and much cheaper!
I promise they have nothing to do with jogging for a half hour on the treadmill like a hamster. Also... no crunches, no situps, no elliptical, no stairstepper. Basically, none of that crap! I have much better exercises that are more fun to do.
3 Exercises to Reduce Waist Size
1. Hindu Squats
This helps reduce the waist size by burning up a ton of calories. It creates a huge oxygen deficit which ellicits the body to burn off fat for energy. Here's what you do...
In your living room or wherever, just squat up and down as fast as possible. Be sure to touch or swipe your finger tips onto the ground with each repetition to insure you went low enough with the squat. Do 100 repetitions in less than 5 minutes. Once you can do that, add another 100 repetitions and do in under 10 minutes.
There are no weights or anything else needed. Just keep your back pretty straight when you do it. Do this everyday. Hey! Don't complain, it only takes 5-10 minutes.
2. Walking up an incline
This is another biggie. It also creates a huge oxygen deficit which forces the body to burn belly fat for energy. All you do is take a treadmill and incline it to 10-15 degrees and walk for 15 minutes. Sound easy? Try it. You can thank me later. It's like night and day inclining a treadmill and walking or jogging on a flat treadmill.
You can also walk up hills. But I can't snap my fingers and put a hill outside your house. So the first 2 exercises are more calorie and fat burners which annihilate belly fat by stealing it for energy.
3. Vacuum Pose
Ok, now this is a direct abs exercise. In fact, it's the best exercise you can do to reduce your waist size. My clients lose between 1.75-3 inches off their waists in less than a month doing this exercise.
Here's what you do...
Suck in your belly button... not your upper abs area. Suck it in until you can't suck it in any further. It should feel like your belly button is touching your spine.
Now, hold that position for 15-60 seconds. Rest, then repeat. Do this for 5 minutes everyday and you should be down 1.75 inches from your waist in less than a month. My clients who've done this for 20 minutes a day have lost an incredible 3 inches from their waists.
So if you do these 3 exercises, you should reduce your waist size by a couple inches in less than a month.
Corset training, waist training or 'tight-lacing' is the process of cinching in the waist over time with the use of a corset. It's not to be undertaken lightly and as with anything body altering there is a right way and a wrong way. Lets take a look at how to do it properly and what sort of results you can expect.
Corset Training Properly - A Word Of Warning
Wearing a corset is a great way of losing weight, it instantly takes inches off the waistline boosting confidence, which in turn helps the wearer persevere with their diet and waist training. However, its important to corset train properly! There's no point making yourself uncomfortable by lacing too tight too soon. You can get back pains, stomach cramps and occasionally faint if your not sensible - believe me I've suffered the uncomfortable pains of lacing too tightly. Your body should feel supported and hugged by your corset, it should not feel like your body's wrestling with it. You should put your corset on and lace it so its snug, then walk around in it for 20 minutes; do your hair, put on your makeup, then when it starts to feel loose tighten it up again so it's snug once more. You can do this a few times but never put it on and go straight for maximum waist reduction. It won't do your body or your corset any good.
What To Expect
You can expect your first 2-4 inches to be easy, it may take you only 1-3 months to manage a 4 even 5 inch reduction but then it can take 6 months to a year per half inch. The body easily compresses a certain amount but after that your constricting internal organs and bone so you should proceed with caution and under the supervision of your doctor. Most people are happy with less than 5 inches but there are extreme tight-lacers like Cathie Jung who has a 15 inch waist.
Corset Training And Weight Loss
The 5 inch reduction mentioned above does not include weight loss, it assumes your already your ideal weight. So there's no hard and fast rule for what to expect when you combine waist training with weight loss. The advantage of corset training to lose weight is that the corset acts like a gastric band preventing you from eating large portions and therefore requiring less willpower to lose the desired weight.
