WHY WAIT Workout Series #5
Tip of the Day:
Shrink your waistline by working the invisible stomach muscles – transversus abdominis muscles. There are the muscles below the “6-pack” that are responsible for pelvic stability. Work these muscles by pulling your belly button toward your spine and breathe normally for 10-30 seconds. Perform 5-10 times a day.
