It will help with blood circulation which is good in preventing the formation of cellulite. However, it will also provide a good workout for your abs, back, and shoulders.
Of course, the only real time when you’re ever going to be able to do this is before you go to bed, so if you’re not going to do it during the day, just make sure you’re doing it at night. And don’t let your husband do it on his own, you’ll probably end up with a “mommy-daddy” abs.
