ASK THE INSTRUCTOR! 21 Aug 2012
Lithers often ask me if wearing the Cinch bands really make a difference in the workout. The answer is, yes! They do. There's always a method to the Lithe madness. The Lithe "bellly band" or haramaki really "tones in" on your abs by keeping in heat and increasing circulation to the abdominals which really helps to get rid of stubborn belly bulge. Bonus? It works a touch on your tush too! Of course, you get a great workout in Cinch without the belly band, but you will experience a new level of sore (and awareness) with it.
