"Love handles: deposits of excess fat at a person's waistline." Let's change this definition with these 5 exercises.

1- Side plank:
Go into a plank position. Bring your right hand close to your face and your feet together. Put your left foot on top of the right one and lift your left hand off the ground. You will be balancing yourself on your right hand and the outer edge of your right foot. Crisp your stomach in, then lower your hips as much as you can towards the ground till they almost touch it, and then lift them up again. Repeat this exercise 10 times on each side, and do three different sets of it.

2- Leg flutters:
Lie down on your stomach and lift your head up, keeping your arms parallel to your body, palms towards the ceiling. Kick your legs up and down one at the time, keeping your knees straight, and avoid touching the ground. Do it for 20 seconds then rest another 20. Repeat 3 to 4 times.

3- Leg circles:

Lie down on your back, keeping your arms parallel to your body, palms down. Lift your legs up so that you form an “L” shape with your body. Squeeze your legs together and lock your knees. Use your feet to draw as large a circle as you can without them touching the ground. Do it 10 times in a clockwise circle, then 10 times counter-clockwise. Do three sets.

4- Twisting crunches:


Lay on your back, bend your knees, lift your head up and bring your hands behind it so you’re in the crunches position. Instead of doing normal abs, raise your left knee a bit and try to touch it with your elbow, same for your right knee and your left elbow. Do three sets of twenty.

5- Twists:


Stand up straight, feet spread a bit, arms on your waist. Twist your trunk to the right so you’re almost facing the wall behind you, keeping your knees relaxed so your legs are stable. Go back to the center then twist to the other side. While you twist, you can also punch the air with the opposite hand of the direction you’re twisting to, letting your arm cross in front of your body (right hand if you’re twisting to the left and vice versa). Do 3 sets of 25.
