How to Get Your Teenage Waist Back

How often have you looked at your wedding picture and thought “I really wish I could look like that again?” Do you think it’s impossible to get your teenage waist back? Do you think it’s too late to change your habits?
Is there really a way to get there?
Yes to all above the questions!  If practice yoga regularly it is very possible to reverse your age and regain your teenage waist.
Why does the abdominal become thickened by middle age?

  • Due to lack of exercise.
  • Over eating, if you overeat and don`t do exercise regularly you do not burn the fat that is in your food for exercise, so it gets stored in the body as fat.
  • Eating at the wrong time. If you eat late in the night and go to sleep the body will convert the food to fat.
  • Pregnancy. During pregnancy the abdomen gets stretched immensely. These muscles will regain shape afterwards if you resume exercise fast and if you don’t gain more than 9kgs.
  • Women often gain excess weight during pregnancy which must immediately be shed after delivery it tends to be stubborn and stick on.
  • One of the most common issues after pregnancy women have is that their waist just is not as small as it used to be. They just want to get back into their normal clothes and while the rest of their body seems to be getting back to normal, the waist just doesn’t seem to be doing the same..
  • Most of the weight gain happens in this region. These muscle become very weak due to over stretching. It’s very important to resume work on this area as soon as possible.

Try these simple postures below and see the fantastic results in three weeks only:

Tips

  • Abdominal muscles are most difficult to get into shape because often these muscles are overstretched and loose their elasticity.You have to be patient with yourself to get results.
  • By training your oblique muscles you will get better results. These muscles pull in the abdomen.
  • Strengthening of lower back is very important as abdominal excercises put lot of pressure on the lower back. Those with lower back problems consult a yoga expert before trying these by yourself!
  • Avoid fatty food. What you eat shows on your body, so if you want that waist, avoid butter and ghee.
  • Eat before 8.
  • The days you have a heavy lunch avoid dinner, you can have soup instead.
