Gabi Grecko Reveals Marks On Her Back As Result of Waist Training

Gabi Grecko has been documenting her waist training efforts on her Instagram account. The Penthouse cover girl recently posted a photo that showed deep, painful red marks on her back with the statement that "Real Waist training-is not fun... Real corset training especially going down a size should look like this. There's no easy way out." gabi Through this training Grecko is looking to lose 13 centimeters from her original 53 centimeter waist. She says sculpted designs, green tea, a high fiber diet and exercising for 45 minutes each day are responsible for what Daily Mail calls her "enviable figure." Waist training, also known as 'tightlacing,' involves wearing restrictive clothing in an effort to whittle down the waist line. Grecko has admitted to wearing her corset for up to 20 hours and sometimes even sleeping in it. gabi2 I have to admit, the thought of waist training makes me terribly uncomfortable. There is no way this is a healthy thing to be doing. It can cause real damage to the rib cage and internal organs not to mention discomfort and difficulty breathing. My concern over this practice is not only over the physical harm it could be doing. I am all for each and every one of us finding a look that makes us happy. Our bodies are our vessels in life and there is no reason it cant look its best. I don't judge people who pursue plastic surgery to feel their best so why do I feel such resistance to this practice? Grecko wants to reduce her waist to 40 centimeters (15 inches). To my mind, that is beyond the scope of natural. As mentioned above, Daily Mail called her figure enviable which of course sends a message that a 15 inch waist is a reasonable target. It is anything but reasonable. Gabi Grecko is free to pursue whatever body she is after, as are each and every one of you. But I implore you, in a Mother Hen sort of way, to never lose sight of what is reasonable for your body type. Gabi Grecko Is waist training a harmful practice with far reaching health and social consequences or is it just a form of body modification that should be treated like tattooing or piercing? We'd love to hear what you think. Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_98338" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat snapcode @BodyRockTV[/caption]
