					Top Five Love Handle Workout To Try
If you haven't heard what love handle is, it is simply the accumulated fat around your waist. This is usually the result of too much food and beer. Other
names used are waist fats, belly fats, and waist tires. Whatever you call it, it's those flabby looking rolls around your waist caused by excessive fats. If
have them, then you should start getting into a love handle workout to get rid of them.


Fats generally accumulate around the waist area. Not only that, it's the last batch of fats that leave your system and the most difficult to burn. If this is
not attended, this will develop into ugly looking rolls. The love handle workout is the best approach and solution. It strikes straight into building
abdominal muscles.


There are a number of abdominal exercises that are recommended today. But the most effective ones are those that work for the rectus abdominis
and the oblique muscle sections. When completely developed, rectus abdominis is also the commonly termed six-pack abs. The oblique muscles are
the waist areas and they differ between men and women. Five of the best and effective exercises are listed below:


Bicycle Exercise.
Lie yourself on the floor, facing up and with your hands beside your head. You raise your left knee halfway touching your right elbow and arching your
back slightly forward. Then you do the same with the other knee and elbow. This love handle workout movement creates a pedaling motion similar to
when riding a bicycle.


Captain's Chair.
This is another popular and effective exercise you should include when doing the love handle workout. There may be several ways to do this but the
basic objective is to build muscles around the oblique sections. You let your body dangle while being supported by your arms. Work kicks in when
you start slow and repetitive lifting of your knees toward your chest.


Ball Crunch Exercise.
You need a large rubber ball that looks like a balloon and about the size of your average hug. This love handle workout is unique because you let your
body rest over the exercise ball instead of the floor. Work begins by pacing your feet flat on the floor while doing the crunch. This exercise works
better with the rectus than the oblique.


The Vertical Leg Crunch Exercise.
This workout looks somewhat similar to the leg raise. Except that your legs are always held up. Your abs muscles contract by lifting your shoulder
blades up and lower it back to the floor. This love handle workout is equally good for both abdominal muscles.


The Torso Track.
Although this exercise is equally effective, it must be done carefully. Otherwise it will break your back. You need an equipment for this and if you buy
one, there should be instructions on how to use it correctly. This type of exercise favors more in working for the rectus.


Needless to say, these love handle workout techniques won't work if you don't do them regularly. Good nutrition and balanced diet must be in your list
too. It is a must that once you get into this habit, it should be part of your lifestyle. Getting the right abdominal muscles will not only make you feel
healthy but also improve your look and that level of self-esteem and confidence. Best results happen when done regularly and with the correct
repetitions. And most importantly, while working out, breathe correctly.
