8 Most Effective Waist Slimming Exercises

3. Leg Raises:


If you want to slim down your waist, you need to realize that your entire core will need to do the work. There’s no such thing as “spot toning”, so you’ll have to train all of your core muscles. Leg raises are excellent for your lower abs and hip muscles, and will give you serious core strength.

How To Do:

  • Lie on your back.
  • Place your hands, palms down, on the floor beside you.
  • Raise your legs off the ground (Exhale as you go).
  • Keep your knees locked throughout the exercise.
  • Hold for 30 seconds, or as long as you can (with some routines, there is only a short
  • contraction/holding period).
  • Return to starting position (Inhale as you go).

4. Bicycle Exercise:


The Bicycle is one of the most effective waist slimming exercises. It targets the abdominal muscles and your obliques for a lean sexy stomach.

How To Do:

  • To start, lie down on the floor or a mat face up while placing your hands behind your head.
  • Bring you knees towards your chest while lifting your shoulder blades off the floor.
  • Bring your right elbow towards your left knee while keeping the other leg straight.
  • Switch sides so this time you’ll bring your left elbow to your right knee.
  • It’s like a pedaling motion. Do 3 sets of 15 reps.

5. Side Plank-Up:


How To Do:

  • Lie on left side on floor with legs stacked and a rolled-up towel between thighs,
    propping torso on left elbow so that left forearm is perpendicular to torso.
  • Make it easier: Stagger feet so that side of right foot is on floor in front of left foot for a wider base of support.
  • Lift hips so that body forms a straight line from head to toe and squeeze towel between thighs.
  • Hold for 1 count, then lower.
  • Do 10 reps. Switch sides and repeat. Do 3 sets.
