3 Exercises To Tone & Reduce Waist Size
Medicine Balls To Help Tone Waist

Everyone wants to lose some fat from around their waist. It's a trouble spot for men and women both, and the smaller it gets, the better clothes sit on you, not to mention that having too much waist fat can signal health risks.

One of the way to reduce waist size is to use specific and targeted waist toning exercises. In this article I'll describe 3 of them for your benefit.

Exercise #1 - Medicine Ball sidways Twist

To do this exercise you need a to have medicine ball. You sit on the floor or mat or stand and hold the medicine ball straight in front of you with both hands. Now, you twist your torso to one side while holding the ball with outstretched hands in front of you (the ball is always straight in front of your eyes even when you twist). You do a few reps of this exercise for both sides of the waist.

Note: You can do a combined killer exercise by doing a lunge and then twisting with a medicine ball, one leg and a twist to one side after the other. This burns a lot of fat.

Exercise #2 - Sideways Torso Bends

You begin this exercise by standing with both feet slightly apart and one hand holding the side of your waist. Now, you gradually bend your torso to the side with your free arm showing the way by going over your head. Make sure not to sway your hips or raise your feet from the floor. Do this for both sides and repeat several times.

Exercise #3 - Sideways crunch

This exercise starts like a regular sit up, but instead of going straight up, you raise your body to one side, lower yourself down slowly, and they raise yourself towards the other side. This works the oblique abs muscles which are related to the appearance of the waist.

By doing these 3 exercises for a smaller waist, you will lose inches from around your waist and look much fitter.
