How Bodybuilders Work on Tight Waist With Growing Age?




          Aging is a fact of life that we all have to face someday eventually. Time moves on, and the same is the case with our age. It affects the training as well as the attitude of the bodybuilders significantly. The days of massive lifting shift to lighter sets along with more work with machines rather than with the free weights. Arthritis and other injuries set in from the heavy lifting done years after years.

       So once aging is the factor, what the bodybuilders should do, and how they need to take care of physically as well as mentally, first of all, one should throw away all the egos and be realistic about what is happening in the body. There is no reason to think that you are old. It is only a state of mind which can destroy you like anything.

          I often hear people telling other people that you are too old to do something. If you think this way, then you actually will be old. No doubt, there are so many ways to think positively. As humans, we like to live in our present, and hardly think about us being aged.

          We look at us and feel we will say the same forever. The body seems hard, without any injuries and pretty much muscular. But over time, things change, and better is to accept the fact and leave the egos.

Things Vary From Person to Person:

Things Vary person to person:

         When it is about keeping the waist tight with aging, situations vary from person to person. For instance, for some people, benches may be high strength while the other says that it does not work much for the size.

So you need to see what works best for you.

The Significance of Small Waist:

The Significance of small Waist:

           You need to know that in earlier days bodybuilders were judged based on the tiny waists. They train in a way where they had the exercises to tighten their sizes.

          No doubt one cannot narrow down the width of the hips; however, width from the front to back can be well controlled. So with the aging, one should know about the exercise that re simpler and more refreshing.

           Good news is that such exercises do exist. These are meant to decrease the waist circumference, and at the same time, they are likely to provide you with a remedy against lower back pain.

V-Shaped Physique:

V-Shaped Physique:

          Back in 70’s bodybuilders not only were in the habit of building individual body parts, but the appearance of the body as a whole was always the focus. It is what bodybuilding should be; whether it is competitive or recreational.

        It should always be about creating an appealing physique at its best. If you remember even Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is known to be a monster of mass, had a small waist.

          When we talk about the small waist, we do not mean genetically small size. It is all about small front to back, something which is within the control of the person unlike the rest of the natural bone structure.

The Thin Waist is Earned:

   Guys like Frank Zane, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Lee Haney did not just stumble on their tiny waists.

         It was also not only because of their attractive ability to hit the vacuum pose from all the possible angles.

        They worked hard and earned them. They have been known to make it a priority in their training routine as well as preparation for the contest to work carefully on the coveted vacuum.

        For them, to work carefully on pulling their midsection in was as significant as working on their biceps, chest, and so on.

Less Bread, More Cardio, Pasta, and Desserts:

           What I am about to say is too simple to what we call authentic. Do not eat junk food and add little cardio to your routine. No, I am not kidding at all.

             Arnold Schwarzenegger has shared it from his diary for all the familiar bodybuilders.

Water and Salt:

Water and Salt:

         You should be very careful about your intake of water and salt. Do not stop eating water and salt. It is one of the absurd advice that we come across on the internet.

      You need not cut down the usage of water and salt thoroughly. Keep the flow of both these ingredients steady and slow.

Smaller Gut Means Small Portions:

Smaller Gut means small Portions:

          Whenever we imagine a plate of a bodybuilder, we think of it being full with the potatoes, meat, gravy, and greens. It can be done when it is your big stage. But once you leave bodybuilding all you must do is to clean up your stomach at its best.

        Keep the portion small and lean. When you eat in smaller pieces, your stomach does not bloat. Your midsection will remain thin and tight.

Torso Twists:

Torso Twists

          You need not go crazy when it is about a thin waist. Instead take a light bar, straight, like from a mop or a broom. Place it across your shoulders. Try twisting with the lower party of your body just above the hips. Do a couple of sets of 100.

           After all, you may have left bodybuilding, but you cannot lose the stamina. Trust me; bodybuilding is not always about building the muscles. Contestants are judged based on their aesthetics as well as symmetry.

         The small waist is what makes your chest, back, and thighs appeared to be bigger and enhance the overall appearance of the physique. No doubt, size is due to genetics too, but there are several strategies and dieting that one can work on towards a thin waist even when one has left bodybuilding.

          Age is nothing in this regards. All you need to have is a passion for looking great, and you will end up in maintaining thin waist even when not doing exercise in a regular manner.
