Hip Circles: Stand with feet comfortably apart, place hand on hips, bend the knees slightly and tighten the core. Now make circles with your hips, clockwise and anti-clockwise. Repeat 10 reps each. Forward and Backward Bends: Keep feet shoulder width apart, hands on hips, tighten the core and push waist forward and backward. Alternate and do 10 reps each.
Very much like the way you follow up on a specific diet and workout regime to shed some fat from certain parts of your body, slimming down your waist would also require a similar treatment.
Dieting alone won’t be enough to help you slim down the hard to reach area of your body. Therefore, a proper exercise should also be introduced in the process.
