You know how Khloe Kardashian wears a Waist Trainer to tone her tummy? Well, according to experts, this technique is not only ineffective but it’s SO dangerous — find out why!
Yes, we know Khloe Kardashian, 30, has a sick body that she works hard for. But the latest trend of wearing Waist Trainers has got to go! DavidBartonGym trainer Matthew Griffin explained to HollywoodLife.com why relying on an outside force rather than your abs could be detrimental to your health and safety!
Khloe Kardashian’s Skinny Waist Trainer — Why It’s Horrible For You
“Our abs are an essential element to the stabilization of our entire body, especially our spines. It is not only ineffective to depend on an outside force for a false sense of security, but downright dangerous depending on the exercise being performed,” Matthew explained.
“Our abs stabilize our body because we engage them. If a corset is used to only mimic the shape of a toned midsection without actually using our muscles, the result is a false sense of strength and muscular engagement. It is much more effective, for both visual and health purposes, to work your abs (correctly) on their own- without an outside force providing an infrastructure that should be created through muscular contraction,” he told us.
Wow — sounds like Khloe and Kim should rethink using this risky technique to tone their bodies!
