best way to get rid of love handles?
A lot of people don't realize that in order to tone your middle and love handle area you also need to strengthen your back. This creates a balance in your torso and reduces the fat on your back.
Lie on your stomach and lift your head up slightly
You can keep your arms straight out at your sides or bend them with your elbows resting beside you.
Lift your feet and knees off the floor and flutter your legs rapidly back and forth. Do this for 20 seconds. Take a 20 second break and then repeat again.
This exercise will work your internal and external obliques as well as the rectus abdominis. These are the two muscle groups that live around your waist. Fat is generally stored on top of these muscles, thus creating the love handle effect.
Lie on your back with your knees bent.
Carefully lift your head up and place your hands behind your head without locking your fingers together.
Twist to the right bringing your left elbow to your right knee. Extend your left leg out.
Now twist back to the left bringing your right elbow to your left knee. Extend your right leg out.
Repeat 25 times.
