The Top 5 Love Handle Exercises

1. Disappearing "Love Handle" Card Trick

To do this card trick…
  1. Get 3 chairs…
  2. A deck of cards & then…
  3. Play the video below…
This works! My son and I have been doing this every day for a week and it (along with the other videos) is already showing in our energy levels and overall performanceSwanson Lisa
Try the 10 minute love handle workout below…

2. Sledgehammer Workouts

Sledgehammer workouts are undoubtedly the #1 exercise/workout you can do to get rid of your love handles because…

If you do not have a sledgehammer you can use a broomstick or a baseball bat instead and To really get rid of your love handles doing sledgehammer workouts…

Just do up to SIX 10-to-30 minute sledgehammer workouts per week.

3. Overhead Sidebend With Broomstick

4. Wood chop

When you're doing the wood chop exercise it's very important that you initiate the movement from your waist (your oblique muscles) and you want to use your upper body as little as possible so if you ever catch yourself bending your arms way too much as you twist to complete the wood chop…

Then that's a sign that you are using too much weight making your love handle/oblique workout ineffective now on the other hand… it's okay to slightly bend your elbows as you are doing the wood chop but to get a better workout…

5. Tae-Bo Love Handle Exercise

This is an exercise that I borrowed from Billy Blank's Tae-Bo that I found to be a very good love handle exercise &…

Now Here's the honest truth about getting rid of your love handles…

With the exception of doing a sledgehammer or tae-bo workout…

There really is not ONE Magical exercise that will get rid of JUST love handles on its on because To truly get rid of love handles…

Doing those oblique or love handle exercises may help your waistline look slimmer as you firm up your obliques but you're going to still have to lose weight all over your body to truly get the slim waistline you want so…

When can you expect to get rid of your love handles…

The answer to that depends on how overweight you are and you can generally expect to lose 10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks on a solid weight loss plan so generally speaking…

You could be looking at 4 weeks up to 6 months to get rid of your love handles completely and you also need to remember that your belly fat is usually last to go so…

As you are losing your arm, face, hip & thigh fat don't be discouraged and keep doing what're doing to lose weight as your belly/love handle fat will also eventually be burned off.

Thanks Adrian, what a great resource you've put together. I can get lost in it for hours (whilst doing side leg lifts of course!)

Hello Adrian,

First of all, thanks for putting up this great website! It has been a week since I started using your website workouts. I must say that your reasoning behind morning workouts to speed up metabolism is so true. Since I started working out in the morning, my metabolism has increased tremendously. I had a question about the "Overhead Sidebend With Broomstick". I am a bit confused about the reps that are to be performed. So in your video you did 2 on either side, followed by 4 on either side, 6 on either side and finally 8 on each side. Was this a one single set of 8 reps that you showed in the video. So I can perform 2 to 4 sets per week to shed my love handle fat.

Thanks,
Reena

May 19, 2013

Adrian Bryant

the video is just one of many variations you can do but in general... you want to do 2-to-4 sets of 8-to-20 reps EACH SIDE

Hello Adrian I 45 years young I've had 4 children I'm 5'2" and 110lbs. I just want to tighten, tone, firm and lift like get rid of the little tiny belly pooch, loose 1 inch of love handless, get rid of the flabby arms I'm beginning to get, and get a perky tighter bigger butt and get back the boobs I lost from nursing the babes. I have put together a program from your exercises for all of these areas but I don't really need to loose any weight so how can I maintain my weight and still achieve the results I desire.

Christina

I am 20 years old, 5'7", and 176. I started at 192 almost 2 months ago. I am striving to look perfect in my two piece at the beach which is now only 3 weeks away. I am doing everything. I exercise everyday, alternating between 1 hour and 30 min workout days. I love to exercise and always have. I do 30 min cardio everyday. On my hour days, i add in 30 minutes of strength training with your workouts for bigger butt and firmer arms. I increase reps or weights everyday. I only eat like 700 calories a day of lean cuisines .and grain bars. I drink 5 bottles(16.9oz) of water a day. I feel great and lmy body looks great, all except the love handles! My stomache is flat, my butt has always been big, but now its more toned and lifted. My breast have always been big but they are starting to lift. My thighs are toned. I used to weight train do my arm muscels are already big and im starting to tone them up more. Why are the love handles stillhere though? How can i get rid of them in 3 weeks, im ready for what ever challange!

March 19, 2013

Adrian Bryant

they may not go away in 3 weeks because usually as you lose weight your belly and love handle fat are the last to go so hang in there and keep on losing and then finally your last 10 pounds will come from your belly

Emily

Hi Adrian,

I just found your website and love it. I am 35 and had a c-section almost 3 years ago. I am not overweight and if anything, I don't eat enough calories throughout the day, so my situation is not the average one. I am 5'11" and weigh about 150 lbs. My goal is to lose the pooch around my stomach and my love handles (never lost from the pregnancy). Since I am already a nice weight for my height, I don't want to lose too much weight from other areas of my body. What do you suggest?

Thank you so much,

Emily

I fractured 2 vertebrae in my spine 6 years ago and have scoliocis in my spine and a screw in my left knee. My gp forbids me to do any real exercise beside swimming. I make an effort to eat right but in spite of everything I am still not able to lose the weight I gained since my injury 6 years ago. Any advice on light exercise or anything that would help me? I am 25 and work fulltime so it's difficult to get to a swimming pool often. So any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Adrian,

I had a look at your workouts and I am really impressed. I will start working out right away. My question is, can I do all four of these like in a collection of exercise or should I just follow one of them?

Here are my details : 6"1 - 109kg. I recently lost 10 kgs thanks to my diet and walking. Do you recommend anything specific? And if you can give me any idea, how long this would take? That would be awesome!

Thanks Adrian.

Kai

Okay so I'm seventeen and I really want to lose about 10-15 pounds, especially my belly fat. I understand that you have to lose weight all over your body, and that's what I've been trying to do for two weeks. I'm 4'11 and 120 pounds. I can't go to a gym, so I've just been doing crunches, running, and lifting weights twice a day. I really just want to get to about 95-100 pounds, and I've recently started eating healthy again. Please help!! I want to lose this weight and be a nice shape by the end of the summer as I have a pretty hectic work schedule during the year!

lexi

hey kai, im 16 years old, and i also wanted to lose about 15-20 pounds. i did every diet and workout and it would take months for anything to work. I started the 17 day diet about two weeks ago and im down 11 pounds. It's the easiest diet plan i've ever done, and it only requires jogging or walking 20 minutes a day. I reccomend it , especially if you dont have alot of time left. You could easily be down 15 pounds in 2 and a half weeks! :)

July 27, 2012

Where can I find the diet?

Hazel C

Hi im 22 years old i weight 183 use to weight 202 i workout 2 times a day in the insanity workouts but i cannot seem to loose more weight im on an strict diet with my nutricionist with raw veggies and fruits. But im not loosing more weight is getting stressfull please help i wanna get to my ideal weight of 135-140. Thanks

July 15, 2012

Julie

Hi Hazel, I am a nutrition student and am finishing up my studies, i know you see a nutritionist and have a disciplined food plan, but have you considered cutting out all of the on purpose carbs (bread, pasta, rice), eating little to no fruit as they are high in sugar (sugar is the first thing your body uses as energy, therefore if you cut the sugar your body has nothing else to burn but fat), making the bulk of your meal protein and little veggies, even raw veggies. Vegetables are basically carb and water. I know many people who like you, have been on strict diets and eating plans and stopped loosing weight, and this worked for them. Maybe your body just needs a food shock.

Also, if you are eating the same things every day your body gets used to it and you slow down or stop all together your weight loss. But remember, the point of losing weight isn't to be "skinny" or the type-cast of "hot", it is to get healthy and fit. Good luck with your fight for better health. You are definitely not alone. Good Luck!

Hi I'm 14, I'm about 160-170cm's tall, I weigh about 55.6 kg, recently I have been trying to exercsize daily, but I get really bad stomach pains, I have hugemongus hips that I've been trying to loose, do you know how long it will take to loose love handles if I do say 50 1 second touches in the morning and than again at night? I will increase the level as soon as I feel comfortable doing the elbow/leg touches?

Vinessa

Hello, I am 5'1 and I recently lost 20 pounds. I am now down to 98 pounds which is healthy for my frame, I'm very petite. I did it through completely overhauling my diet. However, I seem to have lost fat everywhere except the love handle area! I don't want to lose more weight I just want to lose fat. I stick to complex carbs, vegetarian protein sources and eat fruits and veggies. I've eliminated refined sugars and any processed foods. I do a full body strength training workout 2-3x a week. My arms are showing some definition and my legs but my stomach area seems to be resistant! Perhaps this is not enough exercise? Thanks for any help.

Hi I'm 15 and I'm 5'9" and weigh 150. I have recently gotten surgery on my left knee and I've been fairly immobile for the past two months. Recently I started lifting and doing simple ab workouts that dont require much to any movement in my legs. (just crunches, really) I was wondering if there was any way I could loose my love handels. I know, it helps to run so I can get an all around workout but I have started walking and hopefully once I regain the muscle in my leg I will be able to run but until then I was wondering if you had any tips. Thanks!

I'm 5'5 and around 125 pounds. I don't really look overweight but still have love handles that I can't stand. I'm very active in sports and have been trying to lose my hip fat. I've been able to tone my abs pretty well but I've never been able to trim my love handles down. Do you think that this work out will help with love handles eventually or just tone abs more? Thank you very much, I'm excited to try these workouts!
