Oh yes, love handle exercises. You do them day after day, maybe even for months, and yet you see little to no results. This is a pretty common situation and although at times you may feel like you are just never going to get rid of them, there are a few tips that I can give you that may quite possibly make all the difference in your workout plan.
Tip #1 – Do not eat late at night.
Many of us have our biggest appetite in the evening. The problem with this is that if you are to eat something, and then lay down or fall asleep, your metabolism will not be burning through that food like it normally would. It will just sit in your stomach and slowly absorb all of the bad components of that meal.
Ideally, breakfast should be your biggest meal. You want to get your metabolism burning calories right away so that your body is ready to work to your advantage for the rest of the day.
Tip #2 – Maintain a low calorie diet.
Love handle exercises can only do so much. If you are not eating well, your flabby obliques aren’t going anywhere.
A common misconception is that oblique crunches are the only way to get rid of your love handles. That is false. You need to attack the fat as well. Not just the muscle.
Tip #3 – Do cardiovascular exercises
If you want to shed your love handles quickly, the best way to do so is to do some form of cardiovascular workout in addition to your love handle exercises (jogging, treadmill, etc.). The combination of these two things will have your problem area slimmed and toned in weeks.
90% of the products I have seen involving love handle exercises don’t tell you these “secrets”. I have used many of these products, and have been very disappointed in the results.
