Trim Inches With Exercise By ALICIA HART NE ABeauty Editor For you teen-agers who are dissatisfied with the way your figure looks in a bathing suit, what about summer exercising program that will get your figure in perfect shape for the new school term? Find out what your figure problems are and do the exercises that will help you to correct them. By September, your figure should show vast improvement. To take inches off your waistline (so you'll have that dollsized waist for your new fall skirts) try these simple exercises. First, sit on the floor with your legs extended flat in front of you, feet and knees together. Try to touch your shoes with your nose. Of course, you can't expect to do this the first time you try it. But each day you try it, you'll get closer and closer. Next, in standing position, with feet far apart, bend at the waist and touch the floor at right with both hands. Your knees shouldn't be stiff or straight, but slightly- flexed. If you want to streamline your hips, exercise will help you. There's one exercise called the "ropking chair" that's fun to do. Just sit with crossed feet, hands on knees, and rock- back and forth on your hips. Do this until you begin to feel the pull on your hips. To flatten the tummy. lie on the floor and lift your feet to a 45-degree angle; then lower them. keeping your knees straight, slowly to the count of 10.
