There are many ways to effectively remove or reduce the size of your love handles. Love handles are the excess fat stored around the waist. They are difficult to get rid of but with the right program, this can be done. The best way to do this is to eat right and exercise regularly. This will reduce your fat intake and at the same time, decrease the fat already stored in the body.
Abdominal exercises are the right exercises to target the area around the waist. Here are some simple love handle exercises:
They are like regular crunches, except you exercise your obliques as well. Make sure you relax and lie with your back flat on the floor or on the mat. Keep your knees bent. Then, bring your left knee up to meet your right arm. Twist your upper body in order to do this. Alternate the movements between your right and left side.
Remember not to strain your neck and chin. Lift your upper body using your abdominal and oblique muscles and not your neck. Repeat 20 times as a beginner and then gradually increase the number of repetition as you advance.
This exercise is really simple. You begin by lying with your back flat on the floor and with your legs stretched out, also flat on the surface. Make sure to relax your upper body. Lift your legs and try to reach a height of about 6 inches off the ground. Do this lift motion using your abs and not your neck. The tension and stretch should be felt around the waist and there should be no strain in your neck. Remain in this position for about 20-30 seconds. Repeat this exercise 15 times at first.
For this exercise, you start by standing straight with the feet wide apart. However, keep them steady and comfortable, not wobbly. Then, raise your arms like a boxer in a defensive position. Keep your lower body still and in place then start twisting your upper body left and right. Do this exercise fast and repeat up to 100 times. This is effective if you can keep your lower body still and if you do it fast and with many repetitions.
Remember that regular exercise will help burn the excess fat stored in your love handles. Keep exercising and eat healthy to permanently get rid of your love handles.
