It is true that when you control your diet, you will lose some of those fats in your belly. However, you will achieve that slim waist only if you compliment your diet with the right kind of exercise.

Simply exercising on your stationary bike for hours is not enough. Long, slow cardio sessions are not the ideal work out for a slimmer waist. Doing crunches until you can’t stand up straight is also not enough to have a slim waist. Ab-focused exercises like the popular crunch isolate the abs but fail to hit the muscles that run up your side (the obliques) and the deep, ‘corset’ muscles of the abdomen (the transversus abdominis or TVA).

Hip Thrusts

No feminine waist shaping routine would be complete without some version of the hip thrust. Hip thrust together with glute bridge movements target the glutes and the muscles of your lower back. This exercise strengthens your muscle and shapes your glutes.  It is a great way to improve your curves and make your waist appear smaller.

Burpees

Burpess are possibly the best total body conditioning exercises you’ll ever do. They virtually work every muscle groups in your body and if you throw a push up, this exercise will exhaust you even more, which is really great for your body. Do these as part of your metabolic circuit routine or during a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. Bodybuilders, elite athletes and physique competitors use these movements to supercharge their bodies and you can also chose to do so.
