Double Chin Exercises
In putting together a weight loss program, the emphasis tends to go to first the major muscle groups of the body, such as quadriceps, hamstrings, chest, and back.
Next, there is usually a focus on smaller muscles such as biceps, triceps, and calves. But never is there a workout program that includes double chin exercises.
Yet, the face and double chin is the first thing we see in the morning and immediately attach it to our self-image.
By including this area in the workout program, we can achieve a slimmer and firmer face and increase our motivation to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
Double chin exercises can help to get rid of a double chin as you tone up the muscles in your body. Great results can be achieved if the exercises are performed regularly or twice a day. They are easy and can be performed anywhere. No equipment is necessary. It is a great way to slim the features of your face and neck, giving you a more fit and healthy appearance.
It is important to remember that these exercises should be used in conjunction with or incorporated into a total weight loss program. As with any area of the body, it is not possible to only work one area and spot reduce fat. The same goes with fat that produces a double chin. In order to reduce fat in this area, a well balanced and healthy diet is required along with cardio and overall strength training.
Chin Exercise #1: In a seated position, erect your spine and tilt your head back. Move your jaw out, and then upward, resulting in you pressing your lips together. Hold this position for five seconds, and then repeat. Repeat this motion for three sets of 12 repetitions.
Chin Exercise #2: Stand in a comfortable position with your arms at your sides, face down. Slowly lift your head and carefully tilt it back without causing stress or strain. Feel the muscles in your neck by closing your mouth tightly. Hold this position for five seconds and work up to a set of ten each day.
Chin Exercise #3: In a standing position, pull your lower lip upward and hold for a count of ten, then relax. Repeat this exercise for a set of ten.

By consistently performing these exercises to lose weight in your face along with your normal diet and exercise program, you will be well on your way to a slimmer and healthier looking face.
