Top 3 Exercises, Lose Love Handles!
“What are the best exercises to lose love handles?” A question that is asked almost every single day, I’m sure all of us at one point have looked down at those dreaded love handles and just wished they would disappear, heck I knew I used to. I don’t even understand why we call them love handles, it’s not like anyone loves them!
If you’re struggling with the dilemma of ugly love handles, then you’re in luck! I’ve compiled a list of what I personally believe to be the best 3 exercises get rid of them for good.
Now that’s one exercise for the love handles you don’t hear everyday, most people don’t even know what a kick flutter is. Basically to perform the exercise what you need to do is lie straight down on your stomach with your head slightly elevated. Keep your arms fully extended flat down beside you while you elevate your knees and legs off the ground performing a rapid kicking motion, much like kicking when you are swimming. Try to kick for 20 seconds, then rest for 20 seconds and repeat up-to 10 times, 3 sets.
The Kick Flutter is very beneficial to your lower back, what most people don’t realize is that when trying to lose love handles or tone up the mid-section, your lower back actually plays a major role in creating a balance in your torso to help reduce fat.
Standing Side Crunch
The side crunch is another great exercise to lose love handles because it actually targets the muscle that is hiding under that layer of fat, the oblique. To perform the side crunch first you need to stand up with a straight back with your hands by your sides. Grab a light dumbbell and hold it in either your left or right hand, you will then proceed to bend your torso sideways while letting the dumbbell slowly descend down towards the floor, the action is almost like a normal crunch motion, but while standing and crunching sideways instead of crunching forward (the normal crunch motion). Repeat 10 times per side of your body for 3 sets.
This may be a hard one to explain, but is one of the best exercises to help lose love handles, so bear with me. To perform the bicycle lie flat down on your back, extend your legs straight out and keep them elevated 5-6 inches off the floor. You will then lift your head forward allowing you to place your hands behind your head (picture the way that you keep your hands behind your head in a sit-up type position). Now you will bring your left knee forward in towards your chest while twisting your torso to the left side allowing your right elbow to meet your left knee. Extend your legs back out to the previous position and repeat for the opposite side of your body (Left elbow meets right knee). Repeat side to side 25 times in one fluent motion limiting rest periods between twists.
These are by far my top 3 exercises to help lose love handles, try adding them into your daily routine too see the difference. The great benefits of these exercises are that you don’t need to perform them in the gym as they can all be done in the comfort of your own home in just minutes per day.
