The waist, butt and thighs are the problem areas for many. They age and sagg faster than other areas of the body. Some exercises can contribute to returning these areas to their former glory. This article will reveal how you can firm up your saggy bum, eliminate excess fat from your stomach and slim your thighs.

Slim Your Waist

Before we discuss an exercise for the waist, one thing you should be aware of is that stress contributes to abdominal weight gain. Eliminate stress to aid weight loss around the waist.

Now for the exercise. Lie on your back with knees bent and hip-width apart and your feet flat on the floor. Bend up your leg so that your right ankle rests on your left knee. Place your hands on your temples and tuck in your chin to extend the length of the back of your neck.

Breathing out, draw your abdominal muscles towards your lower back and lift your left arm and shouldertowards your right knee. Don’t try to lift too high. Breathing in, return your elbow to the floor and repeat 10-12 times. Repeat on the other side.

Firm Your Butt

Lie on your back, knees bent and hip-width apart, feet flat on the floor, outside edges parallel, arms by your side with palms facing down. Draw your abdominal muscles towards your back throughout the movement.

Breathing in, engage the muscles in the buttocks and back of the thighs and raise the pelvis away from the floor. Hold at the top for one breath in and out. Roll down with the out-breath in a controlled manner. Repeat 10 times.

Tone Your Thighs

Lie on your front with your brow resting on your hands, feet together with a medium-sized ball placed between your thighs. Breathing in, draw your tummy muscles towards your spine. Feel a hollowing beneath your stomach, imagine a berry is placed there and you don’t want to squash it. Breathing out, squeeze your inner thighs and heels towards each other without engaging your buttocks. Hold the squeeze for one full breath in and out. Release and repeat about 10 times.
