1. Start “Tightening” Up Your Core With This Exercise!
This exercise works the Transverse Abdominis muscle that makes your waist tighter, like a corset. Expect to see results within a few sessions if you put in at least an 80% intensity.
Not only does it make your midsection look nice but it also decompresses and lengthens the lumbar spine to help fix back problems.
