With the arrival of good weather, the number of gym membership’s increases, as everyone wants to go in order to work their body so that it looks toned. Achieving this purpose involves making a series of sacrifices and efforts that not everyone is willing to make.
One of the most difficult areas to work and that gives problems to all those who want to get in shape is the abdomen area and, consequently, the waist. Losing fat from this area to achieve a flatter stomach and to be able to refine the waist, takes many hours of dedication and a mixture of cardio routines with specific machine workouts.
To refine the waist, it is necessary to reduce the fat that accumulates in that area and, in addition, to strengthen the muscles so that it is smooth and firm. To achieve this, you can use different training machines that are easily found in any gym.
Before starting any routine, the best option is to go to a professional, tell him what your goals are and what would be the best way to achieve them in a healthy way.
Equipment to refine the waist in the gym
Losing belly fat doesn’t have to be related to getting abs. Therefore, below we talk about the machines that can be used to lose abdominal fat and, at the same time, slim the waist.
1. Rowing machine
If there is one machine adored by many in the gym, it is the rowing machine. Those who reject it is because they think that it is only valid for working their back. However, the truth is that it is just as effective in burning abdominal fat and progressively reducing the waistline. If you are a beginner, it is better that you start with a low load until the body gets used to it and gradually work your way up.
2. Treadmill (or walking)
Jogging at a good pace without running, but not walking, is one of the systems that stimulates fat burning. The pace and time dedicated are the most important, as it is necessary to perform a minimum of 45 minutes a day to activate the lymphatic system and accelerate metabolism.
In this case, if you do not have a treadmill or time to go to the gym, you can always do this activity outdoors.
3. The elliptical
An alternative to treadmills is the elliptical. This machine is much more entertaining and helps to keep the rhythm better, especially for those who have just started in the gym.
The best way to use it to burn fat is by putting up little resistance, keeping up, and not stopping. The movements that are executed on the elliptical help to also work the abdominal area in a more localized way. For full effectiveness, it must be used for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.
4. The climber
The stair climber is a machine feared by all given the hardness of its use, but the truth is that it is very effective to burn fat and tone the legs. As mentioned above, one of the best ways to refine the waist is to burn the fat that surrounds it, which is achieved by practicing cardio.
The exercise that is performed with the stair climber or steppers is the same as if you were climbing infinite stairs, so it helps to burn fat and work muscles such as the abs and buttocks. To increase caloric expenditure, it is better not to practice it by holding on to the support rail of the machines.
While you are in it, it is necessary to correct your posture and try to keep your back always straight and your gaze forward, focusing on the exercise that the legs should do. This will avoid possible lumbar dislocations and stumbling.
