Tiny waist is a dream of many. It looks feminine, delicate and sensual. Turns out, there are a few exercises that can help you achieve an "hourglass" figure without having to purchase expensive gym memberships.
These five easy exercises, if repeated for 15 minutes daily, will transform your body in as quickly as one month. Summer is right around the corner, it's time to get to work. The only two things you will need for these exercises are: 1) yoga mat (optional) and 2) weight (you can use anything heavy-ish).
- Lay down on your back arms resting along your body.
- Lift both your legs off the floor at a 45 degree angle (A). Your back, head and arms shouldn't move from the mat.
- While holding your legs together, toes pointed, tilt them to the right side as far down as you can without ever touching the floor. Hold this position for 2 seconds. Repeat the same thing on the opposite side.
- Make 15 repetitions for each side.
