How To Make Your Waist Smaller With Just 5 Routines?

Are you sick and tired of having a jiggling sensation in your tummy as you walk or run faster? Or worst, people assumed that you are pregnant because of the large waist you have? Well, you are not alone. I, myself have also experienced those embarrassing moments that there came a point in my life that I felt depressed about it - How to make your waist smaller?

I have spent the past years of my life looking for answering and searching through every book, studies, or even some word of mouth to help me figure out how to make my waist smaller. It is in fact quite frustrating. And if you lack in determination, you might just give up easily. But as luck came, I have stumbled upon some exercises that challenged me and changed my life (or in this matter, my waist) forever.­­­



However, as much as I want to stress out the exercises that can make your waist slimmer, achieving the best results in these challenges won’t be attainable if you are doing just the exercises alone. Keep in mind that there are more things to consider in following this tutorial and gaining the body of your dreams. Here are some

  • ​Reducing your calorie intake. Take note that no matter how challenging your exercises might be, if you still munch on some canned or processed unhealthy foods, that pouch bag in your belly will never disappear.
  • As others believe that skipping meals are the best form of diet, then it isn’t! Never (EVER!) skip your breakfast. There is a reason why it is called the most important meal of the day. So stick to having it as your first meal of the day.
  • Choose your everyday clothing. It may seem a bit of unrelated on how to make your waist slimmer, but hey! Getting an inspiration won’t hurt. Especially when you see your whole body reflection in the mirror and begun noticing some changes in your overall weight.

  • Determination. And a whole lot of it! Doing challenging exercises aren't as easy-peasy as it may seem. Since regularity can be the key to a faster waist and body transformation, you must fully commit you're your mind and body for you to commit to your exercises.
  • Be realistic with your goals. Yes, I know that we all want a perfectly shaped body (who doesn’t, right?) but setting up your goals which are next to impossible can be quite depressing along the way since not fulfilling your expectations might bring you down lower.
  • And maybe some luck. (If you know what I mean).

Here come the challenges!

So now that you have all the things you need with you, then why don’t we start and get ourselves to business? Get those muscles moving and your fats burning. Besides, you’re boosting with excitement, aren’t you?

Side Plank

How To Make Your Waist Smaller

To be honest, I am not a complete fan of side planks at first. Since it gave me a hard time mastering this exercise as it requires you more focus and stability. However, just like what they say, the ones you’ve hated the most are exactly the ones you’ve needed the most to achieve your body goals. This exercise proved me that the sayings are true. As it provides my body the much-needed depth of exercise in trimming my waistlines away.

Side planks have given me a lot of benefits. And with efforts, it could give you its benefits too. Here are some:

  • Strengthens your core. As I have said, this exercise requires you a lot of stability. And to maintain your balance, you really have to use your belly muscles to work for it. Thus, toning your inner muscles down to its core.
  • Promotes concentration. The scenario is this, when you are asked to hold on to this position for a while, all of your focus is on how to maintain on these position until the time is over. It may be quite simple, but it can actually build your concentration skills.

Here is a video tutorial for more guided instructions:


  • Lay down on the floor with your side arms and facing sideward.

  • Slowly raise yourself up using the side that is closest to the floor. For example, if you are lying on your right, raise your body and support your body weight using your right hand.
  • Contract your body muscles as you hold on to this position for at least 30-60 seconds. This is where your stability and concentration are challenged as you avoid your hip to drop down to the floor. (You may experience some shaking vibrations throughout while holding on to this position, but don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal since your muscles are working its way to get rid of those fats in between.)

  • Repeat all the steps on the other side of your body.

Russian Twist

How To Make Your Waist Smaller

This exercise enables you to acquire strong abs while working your way to a smaller waistline. The intensity of this exercise is optional and merely depends on how you want it to be. If you're game for more challenge, holding a medicine ball or a dumbbell in your hands can heighten up the force in toning up your arm muscles while you twist and turn your fats in your abdominal area.

Benefits of the exercise:

  • As you build your abdominal muscles in the twisting motion of this exercise, you’re also strengthening your lower back muscles due to its position and required balance in this exercise. Thus, improving your proper body posture.

  • Just like the side plank, the Russian twist also helps you in maintain balance. But unlike the latter exercise wherein you just stay still in a said position, the Russian twist is more complicated as you are balancing while twisting and turning.

Here is a video tutorial for more guided instructions:


  • Sit down firmly on the ground with your knees bent and your heels are foot-width from your buttocks.

  • Slowly lean back slightly as you keep your back straight to create a v-shaped body and raise your feet together for at least 12-inches above the ground. It is necessary not to bend your back while doing this exercise since it can cause you sore muscles later on.

  • Put your hands in front of you while holding the chosen equipment in intensifying your exercise.

  • Gradually twist your upper body to the left while maintaining your feet stable. Your twisting motion must come from the movements of your ribs and not from the swinging of your arms.
  • Afterward, twist your upper body to the right to complete one rep of Russian twist.
  • Complete at least 16 full rep as recommended for beginners and increase your rep number as you master this exercise.

​Windshield Wipers

How To Make Your Waist Smaller

This exercise is basically made for beginners not to experience some hardships in starting and adapting to their new fitness routine.

Yet, if you want more depth in this exercise, straightening or alternative bending of your legs while doing the twisting step can really challenge your abs within.

Moreover, you may want to get out of the comfort of the ground and do the windshield wiper exercise while hanging on a bar.

Benefits of the exercise:

  • Gain your control over your hips and joints by doing the windshield wiper exercise. With its twisting motion, while staying your upper body still, you can make your abdominal along with your leg muscles stronger and slimmer than before.


  • Lay down with your back firmly on the floor
  • Spread your both arms to make a 90-degrees angle with your torso.

  • Raise your both legs until it’s at a right angle with the ground. Keep your feet together while doing this so.

  • While stabilizing your upper body, lower your legs on the right side without letting it touch the floor.

  • Lift your both legs up back to its original position of 90-deggres angled with the ground.

  • Lower your both legs, this time on your left side without letting it touch the floor.

  • Do this alternately for about 20 complete reps or for professional, until the desired number of reps are achieved.

Hip Thrust

When I was a beginner to trimming my excess waistline, I often ignore this exercise since I thought it’s so easy, I couldn’t benefit from it.

But much to my knowledge, there is no feminine waist that doesn’t go through the hip thrust exercise. There’s a wide variety of this exercise, however, the most complex is putting on some serious weight on your hips while holding on to the required position.

Benefits of the exercise:

  •  Activating your gluteal muscles with the hip thrust exercise can let you achieve a more free hip movements and stabilization. Not to mention the firmer butt you could gain (Sounds interesting, right?)

  • In addition to strengthening your hips and reducing your waistlines, this exercise can also prepare you to more challenging weight lifting such as the deadlifts (mainly if you are more into that).


  • Have some stable bench for you lean your shoulders back on.
  • Sit down on the floor with your back resting on the legs of the bench and your feet is a foot-width with your buttocks.

  • Spread your both arms on each end of the bench to make a 90-degrees angle with your torso.

  • As an option, you can start placing some weights on your hips.
  • Slowly raise your gluteal muscles up in the air as your knees create a right angle with your legs and hips while your head is resting flat on the bench.
