Experts Warn Against TikTok’s Weight Loss Dance Trend

There’s an ab exercise that’s all over TikTok and people are paying attention because it promises to reduce belly fat and give you a slimmer waist. The TikTok weight loss dance is going viral, but experts warn this is one trend you don’t want to try at home.

The stomach workout made famous by user@Janny14906has received millions of likes and follows as it claims to be the perfect ab routine. The idea is to move your chest and hips forward and then backwards really quickly while twisting, which makes it sort of a dance. The videos claim the exercise will “reduce the abdomen” by doing each movement for five minutes, but personal trainer Sohee Lee says, “It’s a myth that you can target fat loss from a specific body part. So specific exercises can’t give you a flat stomach, even if they claim to.
