Just like the headline says, my latest article (the first in a couple years) is LIVE over at T-Nation.com. In fact, it was posted this past Monday. The repairs on DrClay.com were just completed today, however…so this is my first chance to let ya know ;)
The caption they give it pretty much sums up the topic of the article – “These five vacuum exercises will narrow and tighten your waist by training the transverse abdominis.”
As you’ll read in the article, when I say ‘narrower waist’ I’m talking about front-to-back, not left-to-right. The width of your waist left-to-right is determined by body fat and genetics.
However, if you tend to have a distended abdomen (aka Pot Belly), then you’ll really dig the article.
Or even if, like me, you have a tendency to relax your midsection, allowing your belly to stick out a bit, then you’ll enjoy finding the fix to that in this article.
Lastly, if you have back pain, I’d also highly recommend the article. That’s because training the TVA (transverse abdominis) has been shown to often help those with back pain. (Note: back pain suffers tend to have a weak, hypotonic TVA that doesn’t contract when it should…thus it fails to stabilize the spine as it should.)
Anyway, hope you enjoy the article :)
