Some people believe that love handles occur predominantly with women, but it is true that lots of men also have them. If you’re looking for a way to lose love handles, you will find some pointers here. These exercises also have the added advantage of helping you generally become fitter as well as reducing those dreaded love handles. Because the formation of love handles aren’t specifically attached to a certain part of the body as some might think (they’re actually caused by a general fat build up all over the body) the best exercises to lose love handles are actually general fitness and weight-reducing exercises.
Strengthening your lower back muscles does do a lot towards helping you lose love handles fast. The way to build these muscles is by lying on the floor on your front, lifting your legs and knees of the ground and kicking them in a manner that you would if you were swimming the front crawl stroke. Keep kicking them for 15 seconds, stop for 30 seconds, and then repeat twice again. Do this regularly to slowly build up those muscles. Make sure you have plenty of room around you so as not to injure others and knock precious vases off your surfaces!
Dumbbell side bending is another good exercising for losing love handles fast. For this you need some relatively light dumbbells. Put one in your right hand, and bend you whole body over to the right, keeping your legs straight and feet a shoulder’s width apart. Do 15 repetitions on each side.
A third way to lose those love handles fast is another stomach-related sit-up exercise called stomach crunches. For these, lie on your back, cross your legs, put your hands at the side of your head and bring your head up by using your stomach muscles to make your elbow almost touch your knees (obviously keeping your hands on your head!)
Following the fitness tips above will help reduce your love handles, but if there was one exercise regime to follow that had to be the best exercise to lose love handles fast then it would have to be simply general cardiovascular fitness. This can be any sort of exercise and doesn’t even have to affect your day; instead of getting a lift or escalator use the stairs; instead of driving to work consider walking, jogging or cycling; these things will help you lose lots of weight (on your love handles and other regions) and will also make you feel really good about yourself.
