Regular exercise differs from waist training exercise only slightly. Waist trainers are designed to help shape your midsection and to intensify your workouts without having to perform high-impact exercises. Therefore, you can continue your current workout routine with a waist trainer as long as you adhere to low-impact versions. However, there are exercises that can work with your waist trainer to help you achieve the figure you want.
Waist trainers tighten core muscles and help support your posture while you work out. At various levels of compression, our waist cinchers intensify even low-impact workouts, such as pilates or yoga.
The right workout routine for you depends on your goals. If you are looking to revamp your old waist training routine, or start for the first time, use these basic exercises to formulate a workout plan that works for you:
Most who have experience with waist trainers continue with their normal workout routine while wearing theirs, albeit at a lighter intensity. Beginners may benefit from watching a few of our videos on applying a new waist cincher or talking with our friendly customer service representatives to answer any questions or concerns. Local fitness coaches can also help guide beginners through their waist training process.
Waist training is a gradual process and can require an adjustment to your normal daily routine. When used correctly, this kind of activewear, along with the right waist training accessories, can produce results much faster and with less soreness than just exercise alone. Waist training should never be painful, and if you are experiencing discomfort at that level, be sure to watch our helpful video that explains how to wear one properly. If you are committed to achieving your desired results, however, there are a few methods that will help keep you motivated:
Like all fitness routines, staying hydrated is paramount to safe, healthy weight loss and muscle toning. Additionally, regular hydration can help stabilize or improve your mental health on your fitness journey - as well as in everyday life.
Eating small, healthy meals throughout the day will help your metabolism, as well as your adjustment to your waist trainer. Over time, you will be able to wear your cincher for more extended periods of time while maintaining this type of diet.
Whether you are sharing your journey online with supportive social media followers or taking it on solo, progress photos can help you visualize your success. When you see a visible difference, you can stay motivated to keep going.
Everyone exercises differently. For some, high-intensity cardio offers the perfect amount of sweat and movement to keep endorphins flowing and the fat burning. Others require a lighter or more refined form of exercise to prevent joint pain and other discomforts. The key is to determine the right workout routine that works for you - and stick with it!
Crunches, sit ups, and other floor exercises may be difficult with most waist trainers. Some are designed with more flexibility, but for the most part, movements that require you to bend at the waist should be saved for before or after wearing a waist trainer.
However, any of these light, low-resistance exercises will help strengthen muscle and burn fat while wearing a waist trainer:
Fat-burning exercise is where a waist trainer can help you take your fitness to the next level. Light cardio-based workouts while you wear your favorite waist trainer are low-impact, high-result. In half the time and effort it would take to achieve a slimmer, more toned midsection with intensive cardio and aggressive strength training, a waist trainer can achieve all that and more.
Some fat-burning workout routines are as simple as a light walk or jog, but weight training can provide a more regimented option. Using a small amount of weight, you can do squats, deadlifts, upright rows, reverse fly, front raises, and any other maneuver you feel comfortable with while wearing your waist trainer.
While some floor exercises are impractical while wearing a waist trainer, there are quite a few ab workouts that do not require excessive bending. These include leg raises, some yoga poses, and planking.
After understanding which exercises are safe and effective with a waist trainer and which ones are not, you can begin to build up a workout plan that works for you. A standard waist training exercise routine to get you started is as follows:
Adapting your workout routine to a waist trainer can help you strengthen your core, improve your posture, and sculpt your abs.
