stomach vacuum/waist thickness

anyone ever used these to improve their uhm, abdominal aesthetics?

LBSS talking about the greek measurements in his log got me thinking - my waist is TOO BIG. around the navel is like 34+ all the time...even with abs. i look bloated aaaaaaaaaaaaall the time, enough for people to comment like 'woah you gained weight?' until i lift my top up and they like huh?

some of its probably my APT but other than fixing this i wonder if stomach vacuums could help? seems you dont have to dedicate much time to them, just wondered if anyone had any sucess?

i've done them (for several weeks) before to experiment, didn't notice much other than the ability to be more conscious about pulling my naval in.. lol :ninja:

most people seem to find them effective tho.

also 34 isn't that big a waist. chill.

also be careful of herniating yourself, my friend was trying to get me to do some yoga version of stomach vacuum the other day and my groin did not like it.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
