Wearing A Waist Trainer for Positive Results
Wearing a waist-training cincher may help you lose weight temporarily, however the results will be short-lived. Most people wear these inches long term for comfort. They do not function as a tool for weight loss. When people wear these cinchers too long, they start to experience adverse health effects. There are also many health risks when these cancers are worn continuously for extended periods of time.
Digestive issues There are a number of conditions that can arise from excessive wear and tear on the stomach area. You may temporarily lose some weight wearing a waist trainer and it may be because of a temporary loss of liquid through sweating, however it will be because of loss of vital nutrients through lack of ventilation. Muscles and tissues require oxygen, particularly during physical activity, which makes it that much more difficult for you to continue your physical workout. Your digestive system will also become strained, causing breathing problems and diarrhea.
You may also have more health risks including diabetes, heart problems, and blood clots because of wearing a corset on a continuous basis. The stomach area is more susceptible to gassiness, indigestion, and constipation. In addition to breathing problems, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia will become more frequent. Eventually, your body will begin to absorb the calories you are consuming due to dieting and not enough exercise, leading to diabetes and heart problems.
You may also have breathing problems because of wearing a waist trainer too long. The tight band will press down on the diaphragm, putting extreme pressure on the breathing passageway, creating asthma and making breathing more difficult. Additionally, a tight band will decrease the lung capacity by decreasing the amount of air exchange. For every additional 10 pounds you carry, your lung capacity drops by one-half to two percent. This means that someone who is wearing a waist trainer in their corset can expect to have breathing problems for at least the first year.
The muscles used in your abdomen can also become weak due to waist training, decreasing their efficiency. If you are an avid exerciser, you probably already know how important it is to strengthen the abdominal muscles to get optimal results from your workouts. It is likely that you are still working out your abdominal muscles even when not wearing a waist trainer. That means that the muscles you need to target will not be as effective when worn, because the muscles will not be used as often. In addition, the muscles will become weaker over time, allowing your metabolism to slow.
Many people who perform crunches or other abdominal exercises do not realize that these routines only strengthen the superficial muscles in the abdomen. Although these muscles are needed for a strong workout, they are not the muscles most important for an effective cardiovascular workout. Your heart and lungs need to use the major muscles in your midsection in order to improve your overall metabolic rate and thereby your health.
Finally, wearing waist trainers can cause you to lose your form during your exercise routine. By holding your stomach in while you are doing your workouts, you may tire your muscles out. In addition, if you are not careful, you could damage your internal organs due to air pressure held in your belly. As you age, your midsection tends to become more flattened, and this can result in injuries such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and compression of your arteries. It is important to take your shape into account when exercising to prevent these types of issues.
Whether you should wear a waist-training device during your exercise routine is a personal decision. Just as each person's body requires some degree of modification so must your exercise routine. Wearing a waist-training device is simply one of the ways that you can make your exercise routine more effective. If your doctor feels that your health is at stake, he or she may even recommend it as part of your weight loss regimen.
