Love Handles correction
Love handles are those dreaded extra inches around the waist that come with age, stress, and poor nutrition. They are often one of the most difficult areas to target when it comes to losing weight and toning up.
- Despite their difficulty level, love handles are completely doable with a combination of diet and exercise. So what exactly is a love handle? Love handles are the area on either side of your stomach between your ribcage and hips.
- This area is typically composed of fat deposited in the subcutaneous layers beneath your skin. Why do they get their name? In medical terms, they are known as abdominal external oblique muscles; however, they got their nickname because they’re usually an area people “love” to grab onto when hugging someone special.
- Unfortunately, it’s also an area that can be hard to lose body fat from. Unlike other areas such as legs or arms which have larger muscle groups made up of multiple muscles, your love handles mainly consist of one large muscle group called your obliques. This single muscle group means there isn’t much spot targeting you can do for it – instead, you have to work across your whole core to improve this area.

How to Target Love Handles?
The best way to get rid of unwanted love handles is through a combination of diet and exercise specifically tailored for fat loss in this area. Here are some tips on how to target them effectively:
- Eat Clean – Eating a balanced diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins will help you maintain a healthy weight while providing all the essential nutrients needed for overall health and wellness. It’s also important not to forget about hydration! Aim for at least 8 glasses per day (preferably more!)
- Strength Train – Incorporating strength training into your routine helps boost metabolism while building muscle mass and burning calories more effectively than cardio alone. Aim for 3-4 days a week, focusing on strengthening all core muscles such as crunches, sit-ups, planks etc., as well as exercises specifically targeting your oblique muscles like side bends and Russian twists.
- High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) – HIIT workouts involve alternating short bursts of intense exercises followed by short periods of rest or lower-intensity exercises which can help keep metabolism high long after the workout has ended – making them great for burning stubborn fat from those pesky love handles! A typical HIIT session could consist of mountain climbers followed by 1-minute plank holds or burpees interspersed with wall sits or squats etc.
- Cardio – Longer bouts of moderate-intensity cardio such as jogging or cycling can help increase caloric expenditure throughout the day without putting too much strain on those overworked muscles caused by strength training sessions – helping prevent burnout and fatigue while still aiding in fat loss!
