How does a faja waist trainer work?
A waist trainer is a high-compression shaping garment that you wear around your midsection to slim your waistline instantly and supplement your fitness goals. Most waist trainers stimulate thermal activity in your core, making you sweat more with less effort during exercise.
What is a waist training workout?
This guide will help teach you exercises that are targeted towards achieving an hourglass figure. That means you will learn which muscle groups to grow and which to tone and you will learn how to sculpt your body and not just lose weight. Fitness is an art and just like at a gallery, you can be the clay and mould your body into a masterpiece. Often times women go to the gym and are afraid to enter the free weight section. With knowledge comes confidence and once you learn how to use equipment you won't be afraid anymore and can start using these important pieces of equipment. Not everything in the gym is right for you and if you want to achieve an hourglass figure then there are certain body parts you want to target more than others. This targeted practice combined with the waist trainer will help you give you a beautiful figure.
Why Should I use my faja waist trainer while working out?
Faja trainers will pull in stomach belly fat and help you become more aware of your core midsection. When you engage your core during your workout you are using your abdominal muscles throughout the workout which will help tighten up loose stomach muscles. Mainly, the waist trainer acts as a sweat chamber for your belly. You will notice that even without exercise you will sweat more throughout the day and sweating means your body is expelling water which will help with water weight and over the long term you will burn more calories throughout the day which means weight loss for you.
Is It safe to exercise while wearing the waist trainer?
Yes and no. Not the answer you were expecting huh? That is because you need to understand what exercises you can do and which ones you should avoid while wearing a faja.
The waist trainer compresses your stomach and can sometimes squish your organs closer together ( it does not displace them upwards nor downwards). This can make it harder to breathe when you are doing exercises that elevate the heart rate. Any exercise performed while wearing the waist trainer should be aerobic. Aerobic exercises use oxygen from the blood and delivers it to the muscles. It stimulates the heart rate only to the point where it can be sustained for the whole duration of the workout.
I like to think of aerobic + I can keep up with a conversation as I am short of breath. Examples of anaerobic exercises are, HIIT interval training or High Intensity Interval Training on the treadmill, stationary bicycle, or elliptical. Sports that require a lot of running such as soccer and basically anything that makes your heart race and cause shortness of breath. I'm sure you see why you don't want to be wearing a waist trainer during these type of exercises. As you are trying to catch your breath, the last thing you need on your body's lungs is a garment restricing that makes it harder to do so.
Do I need to workout?
You may lose inches without working out simply by using the waist trainer but your results will be accelerated and amplified if you use the trainer while working out and eating clean. Remember that your body is 80% the results of your diet and only 20% the results of the hard work put in at the gym. If you are exercising but not eating healthy meals you will certainly be wasting your time and will not see results which will lead to discouragement and potentially quitting. You're only cheating yourself by taking the shortcuts... you're the one who will have to live with your body the rest of your life. You have one body and one life so do yourself justice and treat yourself right. You know you deserve to be the healthiest, happiest, most energize person you can be so let's make that happen! You cannot wait for anyone else to help you, you need to rely only on yourself for encouragement, strength and commitment.
