Love handles are what stick out over your waistband. Although these pouches of skin and fat are not necessarily bad, a lot of women find them unappealing. The trick to eliminating love handles is a combination of cardio and ab exercises. Ab exercises that target your obliques will strengthen the sides of your torso, toning the muscle and tightening the area. Meanwhile, cardio helps up the number of calories you burn, resulting in weight loss and a lower fat percentage.
The combination of these 5 exercises is great for targeting the love handles. You can follow the workout below or add these moves to your own routine.
