Love Handle Workouts To Eliminate Muffin Tops
Learning how to remove love handles can be one of the most frustrating parts of losing weight. Along with belly fat, the love handles are stubborn because it’s the part of the body that tends to goes last when you’re losing weight.
I get plenty of emails from people who tell me they are losing weight or have lost weight but can’t seem to get rid of their love handles. That’s where love handle workouts come into play.
The oblique workouts (obliques is another name for love handles) listed below will help you get rid of these pesky trouble spots. However, what you should know is that in order to get rid of love handles (the obliques) you need to engage in a low-calorie diet and plenty of aerobic exercise. You can’t target one spot on the body with an exercise when it comes to losing weight. The body doesn’t work like that. Weight loss is an all-over-your-body-process. It’s total body fitness. Now, you’re not going to be able to learn how to lose your love handles in a week (that’s impossible) but you will be able to lose them faster than you’d think if you stick with the right diet and the right exercise.
With that being said, you can do exercises that will help with eliminating the fat around your middle. These exercises will strengthen the muscles in this area. Stronger, leaner muscles burn more calories and the more calories you burn the more fat you’ll lose.
The Best Exercises For Love Handles:
It’s necessary to strengthen your back when you want to tone your love handles and midsection. You also need to strengthen your back as it will help you avoid injury and allow you more flexibility and mobility as you age.
1.Lie flat on your stomach with your head raised slightly.
2.Straighten your arms and keep them down at your sides.
3.Slowly life your knees and feet off the floor and gently flutter your legs (like you’re swimming). Do this for 15-30 seconds (based on your level of fitness). Take a 15-30 second brake and then repeat the exercise again.
Crunches With A Twist
This exercise will target your internal and external obliques. This is the best workout when it comes to building and toning the muscles in this particular area. Fat builds over top of these muscles and bunches around your middle creating love handles.
1.Lie flat on your back with your knees bent.
2.Slowly lift up your head. Now put your hands behind your head (don’t lock your fingers).
3.Now slowly lift your right elbow up and twist to the left while lifting your left knee up towards your chest. Try and touch your right elbow to your left knee. Slowly lower your leg and head back to the starting position.
4.Now slowly lift your left elbow up and twist to the right while lifting your right knee up towards your chest. Try and touch your left elbow to your right knee. Slowly lower back down into starting position.
5.Repeat this 10 times on both sides (20 total).
This is a solid aerobic, fat burning exercise. It’s kinda fun also!
1.Stand up straight with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Relax your knees (don’t lock them into place).
2.Twist your torso to the right while keeping your middle-center (hips and legs) stable. As you twist your torso to the right bring your left arm across at shoulder height in a punching motion.
3.Twist back to the left and bring your right arm across your body at shoulder height in a punching motion.
4.Do around 50-100 reps.
These workouts are very effective but, as I mentioned before, it takes an “all-over” approach to really torch the fat off of your midsection. I recommend plenty of cardio exercises as well as a low-calorie diet.
