Unfortunately, we cannot pick and choose where we slim down, the waistline included. As they say, "abs are built in the kitchen" and the same holds true for losing weight around your waist. You can, however, tone and strengthen the area with these exercises that target the obliques to create a powerful core. And don't forget that firing your deep abs, the transverse abdominals (aka TVA), decreases the diameter of the waist. With all your ab work, and pretty much every other exercise too, focus on pulling your abs to your spine as you exhale to work your TVA while also working your obliques.
