Love handles sound warm and delicious and feel like it at time but it is the hardest place to lose the weight for most people!
Love handles are deposits of excess body fat that sit around your abdominal area.
Most of us can pinch our belly fat from the front, back and sides. And it’s not just about fitting into that dress or your favourite pair of jeans — excessive fat can also hurt your health!
But physically losing those love handles won’t actually get rid of any fat if you are not eating the right foods.
Strengthening these areas with some exercises and burning fats starts with the food on your plate everyday!
Avoid sugars, salts and unhealthy fats, and add fresh fruits, vegetables, good fats (like raw seeds or avocado) and lean clean proteins to your diet instead.
Here are some great exercises to get rid of the love we all hate!
Bicycle Crunches 30 reps!
Laying flat on your back with your hands by your ears, elevate your legs to a 90-degree angle.
Next, bring your left knee towards your chest and twist your right elbow to meet it. Repeat this on the other side. Also, as you bring one leg in, stretch the other one straight out.
Russian Twist 50 reps
Begin in a seated position with bended knees and flat feet. Lean back slightly with a strong straight back and get into a comfortable position, contracting your ab muscles. Stretch your arms out in front of you and twist the torso from side to side. For more intensity, tap the floor to the right of your hip and then the left side.
Side Plank Hip Dips 20 each side
Another variation of the plank exercise, start in a side plank position with your elbows touching the ground. Drop your hips to touch the floor as you inhale and exhale while bringing them back up.
Side Plank hold 30 sec each side
Using one arm, either your forearm or your hand, line it up beneath your armpit and stack your feet on top of one another. Ideally, you want to create a “T” shape with your body.
Elevated Plank hold 2 minutes
In a low or high plank, use an elevated surface like a bench, step or ball, and hold this position
High Plank From The Hands 2 minutes
Get your body into a push-up position but hold it up. Place your hands directly beneath your armpits and keep your legs straight, flat belly strong back!
Low Plank From Elbows 2 minutes
Place your elbows and forearms on the floor beneath your armpits and lift your body off the floor with your legs straight.
