How to get rid of a double chin
Those unflattering fatty deposits beneath the jaw line are largely determined by a genetic predisposition. Just as some people store fat along their hips, others develop a gut as they age, and still others develop a double, or even triple, chin. This tendency doesn\'t necessarily correlate with overall obesity, which is why some heavier folks never seem to develop jowls while other, more slender people can sport a floppy neck.
What Causes a Double Chin?
Double chins tend to be associated with weight gain and/or aging but they may also occur as an inherited characteristic. Like any other part of the body the chin is prone to laying down fat, therefore the most common reason for getting a double chin is too much fat being stored below the jaw.
Exercises - How to get rid of a double chin
Exercising the rest of your body will help you get rid of a double chin. Let’s face it, you need to burn off more calories than you consume if you’re going to reduce the amount of fat anywhere on your body. I would suggest signing up for a gym or a Bally’s Fitness center and start working on aerobic (running, biking, stair climbing) and anaerobic (weight lifting) exercises immediately. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll see results.
Some Effective Exercises - How to get rid of a double chin
# While sitting on your knees with your body and upper legs upright place your hands on the back of your hips and lean your head back as far as is comfortable. Hold this position for five to ten seconds and return to upright. Repeat ten to fifteen times.
# While sitting face straight ahead. Place one hand on your forehead and try to push your head forward while you push back at your head with your hand. You will feel this exercise in your jaw, chin, and neck. The repeated resistance will help to strengthen your target muscles.
# Sit in a chair and point your chin towards the ceiling. Pucker out your lips and stretch them out as far as you can. Hold this position for ten seconds and relax. Repeat ten to fifteen times per session.
Here are a few exercises that help to tighten up and tone the muscles surrounding the chin:
• Look up towards the ceiling. Slowly and steadily open up your mouth and close your mouth as if you are chewing, but exaggerate the motions.
• Place the palm of your hand against your forehead and use your head muscles to resist the force of your hand.
• Tilting your head back, move your bottom lip up over your top lip as if your bottom lip is a scoop.
