3 Easy Love Handle Workouts

Hi ladies!

How many of you HATE crunches? I would totally be raising my hand at this question, going "ME!" Lying exercises in general tend to be so boring to me. 

Though some lying ab moves are totally essential, I am glad to let you know that there are a few standing moves that are PERFECT for blasting ab AND love handle fat!

Complete 3 sets of 20 reps per move of the following:

1. Standing Oblique Crunch

  1. Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, with your weight on your right leg and a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell in your left hand. Stretch your left hand up and overhead to the right so you feel a stretch in your left side waist (aka your oblique).
  2. Crunch your torso to the left, bringing your left knee up and left elbow down toward each other as if trying to crack a nut between your ribs. Return to previous position. Do 12–15 reps, then switch sides and repeat.

2. Dumbbell Side Bend

  • Grasp dumbbell with arm straight to side.
  • Bend waist to opposite side of dumbbell until slight stretch is felt. Lower to opposite side, same distance and repeat. Continue with opposite side.

3. Torso Rotations

  • Stand upright grasping a dumbbell with both hands.
  • Rotate your torso to one side. Now, rotate back to the opposite direction. Repeat for 10-20 repetitions.

Here is a video demonstrating each move for you!
