In this exercise, Bianca says your waist trainer helps you maintain good form and boosts perspiration in your core.
- First, lie on your back with your knees bent and arms at your sides.
- Now, push down into your heels and lift your hips up.
- Complete 4 sets of 25 to target the back, abdomen and chest.
Feeling the burn? "Notice how the waist trainer helps your back stay flat? This helps engage your core and your glutes," Jade explained. "Even better, it makes you sweat more around your midsection. So you're getting more from your workout with less effort," the fitness pro pointed out.
