Waist training and any other workout "shortcut"
What the hell, ladies? I thought we got rid of corsets years ago because, you know, they suck. And there are legitimate risks to waist training, especially if you see it as a shortcut for weight loss. Christie Joyce, a certified trainer and fitness instructor, can’t stand the practice, saying, “There’s nothing that trains your waist like good ol’ healthy eating and exercise.”
It’s not like waist training is the only culprit, it just happens to be one of the most recent offenders. Weight-loss supplements, ab belts, and sweat suits are a few of the other shortcuts people have been turning to for years to try to bypass the legitimate challenge of eating well and working out. Sadly, they don’t work, and even when they lead to short-term gains, they don’t boost your health in a way that supports long-term results.
