How to GET RID of Those Love Handles

Let’s be honest… there’s not a whole lot to love about love handles. We love to hate them!
They don’t fit into your favorite jeans, and they can be pretty challenging to get rid of.
Why, you ask?
Since love handle fat sits on the side of the abdominal area, lots of people think that a typical ab workout will blast it away. This isn’t the case. Love handles lie on top of the obliques, which are a very specific group of abdominal muscles. In order to really work those suckers, you have to target them precisely.
That being said, it’s a myth that you can spot reduce fat loss. Yes, you can target your obliques to maximize toning, but fat is lost through cardio and diet. We’ve all heard that abs are made in the kitchen, and (unfortunately) it’s true. You can do crunches until you are blue in the face, but unless you get rid of your excess fat through healthy eating, your toned abs will never be seen. So here’s the best strategy for kicking your love handles to the curb:
Step 1. Eat lean. Eat clean.
Step 3. Try the following this quick and easy love handle workout.
Repeat the following circuit 3 times, moving as quickly as possible from exercise to exercise. Do this routine 3 times a week.
