Workouts For Love Handles:8 Exercises To Get Rid Of Love Handels!

Ok so not only do those love handles look bad, but extra fat sitting over the kidney area can increase your risk for kidney disease related problems.

So yes, getting you lean in this area is critical.

There are moves you can do work on these areas. However, first. You must keep in mind that spot reduction or reducing body fat in one part of the body really does not work well. You can however work a particular muscle to get stronger.

The good news is you can get rid of the love handles. Reduce your over all body fat % by making sure your body is in a slight calorie deficit. This can be done by increasing your workout intensity and eating slightly less than your body needs. Eat lots of protein and have a balance of resistance training and cardio in your workout regiment. There are tons of 45-minute workouts I give you for free on my YouTube channel you can do here.

Having said all that, there are still ways to sculpt and tone the love handle area. Here are some great exercises you can hit those pesky love handles with. The muscles that are closest to your love handles are the obliques. These are the muscle responsible for core activation and rotating your torso left and right. Add at least 4 of these moves in 4 times week for 3 sets to your current workout plan:

Drunken mountain climbers

This one of my favourites. Not only does it work on the core. But will hit those obliques too! You start out in a plank position on your hands or elbows , then lift one leg up towards your opposite elbow.

Then rotate the torso while you bring your knee up to the elbow. Go back to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. Try for 30 seconds for 3 sets. Not only will this kill your core but will really attack those love handles from every angle.
