The Perfect Sit-Ups
Exercising the abdominal muscles is the only way to tone and firm your waist. The good news is that the abdominals respond well to exercise, are the easiest of all the muscle groups to get into shape and have the greatest effect on the contour of your waist. Strong abdominal muscles also help to form a protective splint for the lumbar region, but here lies a problem: Many people have relatively weaker abdominals than back muscles. This imbalance is the most common cause of lower-back pain, so one of the best preventive treatments is to do sit-ups to strengthen your abdominals.

If "tummy-tightening" is high on your agenda, bear in mind that waist-toning exercises won't remove much body fat unless they are combined with a low-fat diet and aerobic exercise. But they will give added definition to your abdominal muscles and aid good posture, both of which will make you much more shapely! Visit our site and click on "Exercircle" for proper form and technique advice on sit-ups.
