To start 2021 off right, alot of our readers have made the commitment to get in better shape, especially with those "quaratine pounds" still floating around. Not our surprise, but one of the popular training methods that many were thinking about trying was waist training with a waist trainer, or corset.
So, since we had already written an article on waist training, we decided to come up with a waist training program, for beginners, that anyone with a waist trainer can execute - check out the 7 Day Waist Training Program!
7-Day Waist Training Program
The first day of the waist training guide starts off simple: you wear the waist trainer for two hours, which can be altered, depending on the personal comfort and goals.
The second day of the waist training guide consists of you wearing the waist trainer for up to four hours. If you have just begun to practice waist training, be prepared to feel a little bit discomfort. Similar to most exercises, you have to work your way up. Longer durations of wearing the corset increase the slimming results. One thing to kind in mind is that "It's only Day 2. Take it easy." You may feel the need to force yourself to keep the waist trainer on, but listen to your body. If you feel pain, or wearing the waist trainer becomes unbearable, then you should take it off and give your body time to adjust.
On the third day of the waist training program, the minimum training time should not be less than four hours. The big difference between Day 2 and Day 3 is that now you can start performing gentle exercises while wearing your waist trainer.
Light cardio and body weight movements are great starter exercises you can perform to gauge your tolerance while wearing the waist trainer.
On Day 4 of the waist training program, you'll wear the trainer for up to eight hours a day. Around this time, you may start to feel that wearing the waist trainer sort of affects your eating habits. You're not alone in this, as many women have reported reduced appetite when wearing waist trainers. This could probably be a result of the waist trainer compressing your waist and stomach, which could lead to smaller stomach size. This could help with incorporating smaller, nutrient-dense meals in your diet.
The target for this day is to wear the waist trainer for up to nine hours. You should also increase the intensity, or duration, or your current cardio workouts. The key for Day 5 is to stay consistent with the healthy eating habits and exercises that you have been performing up until this point. The waist trainer is only speeding up the results of slimming up your waist and stomach area.
By day six, you should definitely feel more comfortable in your trainer. You may even notice that the trainer has loosen up a little, so feel free to tighten it up to continue the program. The goal now is to try and wear the cincher for up to 10 hours, while maintaining healthy eating habits and light-to-moderate exercise. You're almost at the end of the program, don't mess it up now!
Congratulations!!! You have managed to complete the 7 Day Waist Training Program, along with a bunch of other things! Think about it - you are now able to wear your waist trainer up to 10 hours a day, you're eating less, but better foods, and you're exercising for at least 20-30 minutes a day, gradually increasing the intensity as you see results. Those are successful results if we've ever seen any.
Keep in mind every woman’s body is different. There are many factors that can determine how fast you'll see weight reduction in your waistline. Remember, you are ‘training’ your body to a silmmer shape; this can take consistency and time.
