8 Most Effective Waist Slimming Exercises

6. C-Curve:


How To Do:

  • Stand facing a wall with legs together, squeezing rolled-up towel between thighs.
    With knees slightly bent, hinge forward at hips to place palms on wall, arms extended, so that back is nearly parallel to floor.
  • Squeeze abs and towel as you rise onto toes, then do 20 pulses:
  • Lower hips 1 inch, then raise them 1 inch. Make it harder:
  • Start with knees bent 90 degrees so that hips are closer to knee level, then pulse. Do 3 sets.

7. Round Back:


How To Do:

  • Sit on a folded towel on floor with shoulder blades against a wall and knees bent, feet flat;
    make sure back is rounded. Place hands on floor near hips, fingertips pressed into floor.
    Squeeze abs and lift feet off floor, bring knees toward chest, then straighten legs so toes point toward ceiling.
  • Do 10 pulses: Bring legs 1 inch closer to wall, then move them back 1 inch.
  • Make it easier: Keep left foot on floor and bring extended right leg toward you by grasping right calf with both hands.
  • Hold for 30 seconds; switch legs and repeat. Do 3 sets.

8. Lying Toe Touches:


How To Do:

  • Lay flat on the floor with your legs in the same position as they were in for the V Ups.
    Raise your legs so that they are straight up in the air forming a ninety degree angle with your body.
  • Draw in your abdominal muscles to perform a crunch while extending your hands up to get as close to touching your toes as you are able to.
  • As with the V Ups, feel free to hold a medicine ball, weight plate or dumbbell in your hands and reach that up toward your toes.
