Getting the Most Out Of Your Workout Waist Trainer

Getting the Most Out Of Your Workout Waist Trainer

Waist trainers have exploded in popularity recently. Drawing inspiration from the traditional corset that has been a staple of women's fashion for centuries, waist trainers can help the wearer achieve the iconic hourglass shape or reduce inches from the waistline, but by using a slightly different technique. Where corsets do it with steel boning and by tightening the lacing in the back, waist trainers use modern materials like latex to provide compression and hook-and-eye closures in the front for increasing or decreasing their tightness.

Less bulky and easier to put on or take off, waist trainers are quickly being adopted as an undergarment for fashionable purposes - they smooth curves just as wonderfully as corsets - but they especially outshine corsets because of their ability to be used in sync with any exercise and weight-loss regimen. A specially designed workout waist trainer can become one of your best allies for reaching your body image goals, maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of your hard work and sacrifices. This article will explain how as well as give you some great tips on getting the most out of your workout waist trainer from SqueezMeSkinny.

What Is Waist Training?

If you've never heard about waist trainers you probably also have no idea what a trained waist is. A trained waist is the result of constant squeezing to the midsection, gradually getting tighter until the waistline has been reduced in circumference. Some people do it to attain the "hourglass" figure, while others just want to shed a few pant sizes. The results can be permanent so long as you eat less and continue to wear a corset or waist trainer. But, with corsets, it usually comes with the cost of shifting the bones in your ribcage and rearranging internal organs - something that can have health repercussions down the line.

Both corsets and waist trainers can also act as a non-surgical lap band. A surgically implanted lap band is a band of silicone put around the top of the stomach organ, reducing the appetite in people who suffer from obesity so that they feel more full even while eating less. Corsets and waist trainers have the same effect without the invasive procedure, restricting the size of the stomach and helping the wearer to consume fewer calories.

Waist trainers can go further than simply acting as a non-surgical lap band, however, and, unlike corsets, will increase the thermal temperature right at the midsection because of the materials used. This causes the wearer to sweat more. The materials used to make waist trainers are also much more flexible than corsets, making them able to be worn while exercising. This has given rise to the Workout Waist Trainer - waist trainers specifically designed to be worn during exercise to provide compression with the flexibility to allow a full range of motion, and at the same time help you to burn more calories!

What Is a Workout Waist Trainer?

There are plenty of workout waist trainers available on the market today, but those from SqueezMeSkinny are a cut above the rest. That's thanks to the amazing features built-in using state-of-the-art designs and technology. Our premium waist trainers are made with a special blend of lycra and cotton. This sweat-wicking material is perfect for enhancing your workouts! The Flexi-Boning rods add structure to the squeeze, but they're extremely flexible to allow for comfortable movement. They're dual-layered with a latex exterior and breathable cotton lining, so you get maximum waist training without the discomfort to hold you back!

We also have a reputation for amazing customer service that is always there for you along your entire body transformation journey. Here is a look at the Workout Waist Trainer collection from the SqueezMeSkinny online store and how any one of them can help you to take your workout to the max.

Multi Cheetah Workout Waist Trainer

Bring our fashionably designed Multi Cheetah workout waist trainer with you to the gym and you'll feel the difference. This sporty waist trainer is made to enhance your routine without holding you back because of discomfort from wearing it thanks to a blend of Latex and Spandex. It non only gives you extra back support but increases the body heat in the targeted area to help you melt the pounds away. The short torso length of the Multi Cheetah specifically works towards creating that sexy hourglass shape you've always wanted.

You can find a workout waist trainer in your desired size and length for pinpointing small or large sections of your midsection. A couple of examples are our 8' Short Torso Sport Waist Trainer and Long Torso 12" Exclusive Design Sport Waist Trainers options.

The 8' Short Torso Sport Waist Trainer is the shortest model we make, designed for training just the smallest curve of your waist to achieve an hourglass figure. The Long Torso 12", on the other hand, will provide compression to that stubborn fat around your hips and over your ribcage.

Another extremely popular model of workout waist trainer we make is the Neoprene, Burn The Belly Fat! This option is quite special and shows the value SqueezMeSkinny offers in our workout waist trainer collection through our research and innovation in using state-of-the-art materials.

Neoprene is a type of synthetic rubber that retains its flexibility in a wide range of temperatures, both hot and cold. The neoprene material also raises the thermal temperature around your midsection, causing you to sweat in that area far more than you could by working out twice as hard. It provides full coverage around your torso so that your entire core will definitely feel the burn!

The Neoprene, Burn The Belly Fat! workout waist trainer uses some of our innovative features found throughout the Workout collection, including:

  • Multiple rows of hook and eye fasteners for tighter adjustment
  • An exclusive "All Latex" material with an inner layer of cotton for improved comfort
  • Front boning and side-boning with our exclusive Flexi-Boning technology

Because the Neoprene, Burn The Belly Fat! workout waist trainer uses a combination of several fabrics making the garment slightly thicker than our other models, we recommend you choose a size up if you are between sizes according to the chart on the description page.

Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Our Workout Waist Trainers

By now, you should have an impression of the variety available from the SqueezMeSkinny Workout Waist Trainer collection. It is far more extensive than what examples have been shown here. We also carry waist trainers that are meant for everyday use in our Aggressive Style collection. And that brings us to the first tip for getting the most out of your workout waist trainer, which is to wear one of each!

A workout waist trainer on its own has several benefits, including:

  • Advanced tummy control to engage your core when exercising
  • Raise the thermal temperature on your midsection, increasing your sweat production
  • Trains the waist, instilling in it the "memory" to stay compressed and smaller
  • Provides you with added back and abdominal support to make your workout routine more explosive with less chance of injury
  • Promotes fat oxidation at the targeted area (your torso and midsection)

But, when you use a workout waist trainer in conjunction with an everyday waist trainer from our Aggressive Style collection, you are doing much more to "train" your waist even when you're not working at all!

The way this happens is by constant compression. Similar to a coiled spring, your body develops memory over time. The more you eat and your stomach expands, the looser the skin around it becomes, and it takes more food to fill you up. By applying constant compression over the stomach, your skin begins retaining that memory of tightness while your stomach does, as well. You eat less and the area of your body around the stomach is more inclined to tighten.

You probably don't work out all day long - more likely only a couple of hours at most - and developing a trained waist through compression memory is much more effective the longer amount of time you apply that compression. With the SqueezMeSkinny Aggressive Style collection of waist trainers for everyday wear, you can find waist trainers with maximum compression that continues the pressure even after you've left the gym!

And our waist trainers designed for everyday wear are still comfortable, with the same inner layer of cotton to stop the latex from rubbing you the wrong way. There are different levels of compression you can choose depending on your personal comfort level, but after breaking them in for a few days you should have no problem forgetting they are even there. We recommend that you begin by wearing them between 1 to 2 hours initially until you work your way up to no more than 10 hours of continuous wear a day. 

Targeting Specific Areas Of Your Body

You know that exercise is all about repetition. So is training your waist with compression. This is why another way to get the most out of your workout waist trainer is to consistently wear it while doing exercises that target specific areas beneath them. The fat that accumulates around the back is one of the most stubborn and hardest to get rid of even when pinpointing with particular workout routines. But, by strapping on your workout waist trainer, you'll finally be able to push your body over the edge to eliminate these pesky fat deposits once and for all!

Every good workout begins with cardio to raise the blood pressure and oxygen levels in the body. Because of the heightened thermal temperatures and increased sweating that a workout waist trainer provides, you'll gain more aerobic stimulation, and quicker, too.

The Reverse Fly, Resistance Band Pull-Downs, Back Extensions, and the Side Plank Variation are all great exercise routines to target the back and get an added boost from the compression and increased sweating of a workout waist trainer.

Even your butt and thighs can see better results with the help of a workout waist trainer. Squats target these portions of your body and keeping a perfect form is essential for reaching down to their deepest muscles. The workout waist trainer provides you with enhanced abdominal and back support, making it much more difficult to do squats or lunges the wrong way rather than properly.

Push-ups target several muscles in the body, including the chest, triceps, biceps, and the core. This is another workout that requires abdominal engagement and a straight back to execute correctly, and the workout waist trainer won't let you down here, either!

Caring For Your Workout Waist Trainer

Lastly, no discussion about getting the most out of your workout waist trainer can discount the importance of proper care. The materials used in high-quality workout waist trainers like from SqueezMeSkinny have several benefits, but require a little extra attention to maintain. The rules for washing and storing them are simple, however, so don't be discouraged! Here are some easy-to-follow tips for protecting your investment.


Your particular workout waist trainer (and waist trainer for everyday wear) will come with instructions on how to properly wash them to extend their life. Follow them! Depending on the materials you will have different guidelines, but, in general, latex should only be washed with mild detergent and cold water. You should never dry them with any mechanical dryer or other machines but by hanging them to dry upside down.


Latex should be stored in a cool, dry place away from light so as not to degrade the material. Also, you should hang your workout waist trainer in the closet, and not roll or fold it as this can damage the latex, as well.

Efficient, Effective Waist Training From SqueezMeSkinny

A workout waist trainer can enhance your exercise regimen and help you achieve the body image you've always wanted. To get the most out of your workout waist trainer, you should also wear a waist trainer designed for everyday use for up to 8 or 10 hours a day. Constant compression, as well as healthy eating habits, will maximize your results. Finally, proper care for your workout waist trainer will extend its lifespan, allowing its value to go further.
