How do you know you are doing the dumbbell sidebends right?

To really "whittle" your waist (as in... truly burning away the fat) are fat-burning exercises like cardio. All this does is tone the muscles (that are under the fat). Of course if you're already an ideal weight, this is a perfect workout for shaping and toning your waist. =D
