10 Steps to Train Your Waist

By November 14, 2015 Blog

The waist is probably the easiest place to lose unwanted fat if you are diligent about it. If you have ever been on a diet you have noticed the upper half of your torso show results first. With a waist trainer you can speed up this process. Losing that stubborn residual body fat and tightening up those muscles is going to require patience, diligence and a healthy connection to your body. Along with a waist trainer, abdominal exercises and high intensity fat-burning exercises will recreate the waist into the hourglass you desire. Here are the 10 steps to train your waist.

1. Begin

Your initial first step is to write down a goal plan. Take a peek at people’s results who have reshaped their body. You will notice the average time to fully see results is around 90 days. By writing out a plan and hanging it where you can access it everyday will help you stay on course. Plan your waist training, your exercise regimen and your eating plan. Keep going.

2. The waist trainer

Pick a waist trainer that fits properly. It should feel tight in the core area, but not so tight that your breathing is restricted or you feel pain. It may not be super comfortable, but gradually work your way up to wearing the trainer for longer periods at a time. The ideal waist trainer will have at least to rows of hooks, preferrably three. When you first put it on, use the first set until you are comfortable wearing the garment.

Be sure the waist trainer closes properly with no bulging. It shouldn’t roll over or ride up;if it does this is a sign your trainer is too small for you at this beginning point. Before you start wearing your shaper for 8 hours, it will need to be broken in for a better fit and more comfort. Do not over train at any given time in your reshaping program.

3. Slow and easy

Beginners in waist training should aim for around 2 to 3 hours a day of wearing the shaper. You can always start out slower, but try for at least an hour a day for a week. Your progress is going to depend on how fast you adjust to wearing the waist trainer.

4. Continue

Gradually work your way to 8-10 hours of wearing the trainer. For more drastic results, wear the entire day. Many people will wear their trainer to exercise or sleep in, this is not advisable. You will notice that your corset may start to get loose and slide on your waist. This is a good sign. The waist trainer is working and your waist is shrinking. This is the stage in your program that you will want to get a smaller size trainer.

5. Think ‘healthy’

For maximum waist shaping, adopt a healthier lifestyle. When you pair regular exercise and proper eating with your waist training program the results are going to be dramatic.

To help you along with this quest, the waist trainer will make you feel full and not able to consume as much as normal. This will help with weight loss since you won’t be able to overindulge.

Remember, every person’s body is different, so results will are dependent on many factors. For some women, they may see visible changes in as little as 3 weeks, while others who may have less fat and more tone may take longer to see the results.

6. Consistency

Being consistent in wearing the waist trainer is essential. If you only commit 2 hours a day to wearing the shaper then your results is going to be less than if you were wearing it 8 hours a day faithfully. The key to wearing these waist shapers is to train your body which is only done by diligence and commitment..

7. Patience

No one loses weight and reshapes their body overnight. Being patient and taking it day by day is the long term goal here. If you dive in and improperly wear your waist trainer, you will do more damage than good. Always follow the right path with waist trainers to avoid harmful outcomes.

8. Hydration

Most people do not stay fully hydrated. Be sure you are increasing your liquid intake while wearing the waist trainer. A good waist trainer will increase the thermal activity to your core area. Perspiration requires more fluid replacement.

9. Strive for improvement

The gym is not the always where the best training begins. Training begins with intention and attention. Whatever you put your mind on is going to grow stronger in your life. Upon waking, take 5 minutes to stretch, make a conscious effort to eat nutritional food, and find ways throughout the day to make your body work more. Test your limits. A great sculpted body does not happen by eating junk food and remaining sedentary. It requires conscious choices, even the tiniest of ones.

If you are overweight or unfit, consider taking some cardio classes before beginning waist training. The idea is to remove as much excess body fat as possible. On the other hand, if you are a gym regular who is fit but are not seeing results anymore, it is time to take a break. The body has reached a set point. Over exercising can push the body into a state of stress over producing cortisone. Cortisone ultimately can create a layer of fat to pad around the waist. It is at this point you will benefit more from a yoga class or a massage to allow your body restoration.

10. Assess your program

Do a self-check regularly to make sure you are wearing the waist trainer correctly, and you are staying within a healthy balance. If you are not eating enough, over exercising or wearing the waist trainer too tight you are setting yourself up for disappointment and possible health concerns. Each day take a look at your goal program list and keep track of progress. This will help to keep you going, and keep the confidence. Don’t give up, you got this!
