Some models have the perfect waist. Yes there are some genetics playing a role, but a lot of it has to do with diet and exercise.
Let’s explore here the exercises required to walk the Victoria’s Secret catwalk or any international catwalk.
Try to do as many repetitions you can of the following exercises without stopping :
1)Push ups. Who has ever thought that the simple exercise of them all also works in the waist. But yes it creates the frame where a great waist can shine. Push ups are great for the core without creating too much muscle bulk. I highly recommend anyone to do them daily, try to increase a few repetitions everyday. Always look straight and never down, your target is to touch the chest to the ground or close to it. Always do a full push up and never on your knees. If you can’t go the whole way down just go half way.
2)Hip rotations. Have you even seen the waist of a dancer? Have you ever wondered why? It is because of hip rotations. I do them with my model clients for minutes without end. Do it like this : stand up, feet apart , keep your head still and now with legs fully extended rotate your hips to one side over and over. Try it for 15 minutes and then do the same on the other side .
3)Waist crunches. Here is one of my secrets ! Sit down with legs crossed, and now try to touch your elbow at the ground without moving your knees or legs, then try the same thing with the opposite elbow and keep alternating like that for at least 5 minutes !
4)Full Sit ups. Ok, lets go army here. Lay down, with arms crossed in front of your chest, do full sit ups. I recommend you do it in the hundreds. Start with a hundred and go from there ! It burns ! Yes it does , and it works, yes it does.
5)Walk. Who ever thought that walking is good for your waist, but it is. It is a gentle cardio exercise that is great to tone your core ! Start with one hour a day and if you can, once a week do a long walk, like a bushwalk .
6)Diet, diet and diet. What you put in is what shows ! Eat unprocessed foods. I describe more about diet in my book The Rawfit Diet.
