To lose your love handles at home… Get 3 chairs, a deck of cards and 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

2. Rotate Hips

Followed by rotating your hips while STILL rotating your waist.

3. Rotate Knee

4. Rotate Feet

Then rotate or pivot your feet.

5. This is Where You'll "feel it"

Feel it in love handles

Then keep rotating your waist, hips, knees & feet as far as you possibly can. At this point you'll feel it in your love handle area or obliques.

6. Place Card on Chair

place card on chair

After you can't possibly rotate your waist, hips, knee and feet anymore… Reach out as much as you can with your arm to place the card on the chair. This makes you rotate a little bit more at the waist for a better love handle workout.

end of love handle exercise

ONLY at this point you can slightly move your head, neck & shoulders to see the chair behind you.

7. Pause in the Middle

Pause briefly in the middle before repeating the same thing on the other side.

If you don't pause… You may accidently move other parts of your body like your head that needs to remain still or… You may go out of order and start to reach with your arms before rotating your waist, hips, knees and feet.

Do 1 of these 4 things once this exercise gets too easy

  1. Put the chairs further back behind you.
  2. Put the chairs closer together.
  3. Use 1 chair directly behind the chair you're sitting on.
  4. better love handle workout
    When you're not "feeling it" anymore in your love handle area… Put the chairs in a position that makes you rotate your waist more.
  5. Place the card on the opposite chair. For example, if you rotate to the left with the card in your right hand… Place the card on the chair to your right instead of the first chair on your left.

Tornado Ball Workout

The tornado ball, sledgehammer & tae-bo workouts are the only love handle exercises on this page that'll actually burn belly or love handle fat because they're both HIT fat loss workouts

The other love handle exercises on this page will ONLY firm up your love handle area making your waist look slimmer.

When using the tornado ball,

Sledgehammer Workout

The reason sledgehammer, tornado ball & tae-bo workouts are good love handle exercises is because you're using the muscles in your love handle area (your waist & hips) to generate enough power to swing.

Remember: Sledgehammer, tornado ball & tae-bo workouts truly get rid of love handles because they're HIIT fat loss workouts that burn fat all over your body (including belly fat). Other love handle exercises ONLY firm up your love handles while doing very little to actually burn off love handle fat.

If you don't have a sledgehammer,

Use a broom like in the video above ↑, use a tornado ball or a baseball bat.


The power you generate from all the punching and kicking in Tae-Bo, Boxing or any Martial Art workout comes from your hips, waist or your love handle area. So, you're firming up your love handles while burning fat all over your body.

Suitcase Carry

Carrying heavy objects in 1 hand will make the love handles or force the oblique muscles on the opposite side of your body to work hard to keep you from leaning over.

Do sets of walking 50-to-100 yards with something heavy in 1 hand (holding it out at your side) for a good love handle workout.

If you have to use your other arm to balance, not the arm holding the object, then whatever object or weight you're using is heavy enough to work the muscles in your love handle area.

I weighed 200 pounds until I started doing your effective exercises like broom, toy snake and jumping jack workouts. When I hit the dreaded weight loss plateau, I started your intermittent fasting and the fat (like love handle fat) began melting away!Samarth Kagdiyal

I did the Bed Sheet workout, the cards & broom. I did not know you had a diet plan. Thank you again. It's a good feeling that there are people who care about people and not the money.Paula Buckle

How to Hide Your Love Handles

While you're losing all your love handle fat… You can instantly hide your love handles with the 7 tips below.

1. Dark & Light

2. High Waist

Wear bottoms that come up higher on your waist near your belly button. Wearing bottoms near your hip area will only reveal your love handles more.

3. Not too loose or tight

Wearing anything too loose or baggy already makes you look big. Wearing clothes too tight will only draw more attention to your love handles. Solution: Wear clothes that aren't overly loose or almost skin tight.

4. Women → A

A Line type dresses keep your love handles out of site by starting out thinner at the top and then spreading out wider at the end.

5. Never Tuck In

See #3 again. Tucking in will only make your shirt tighter. Tighter clothes make love handles more visible.

6. Posture

Bad posture makes your belly fat and love handles more visible even if you're skinny → How to Perfect Your Posture

7. The Last Resort

You can wear compression or shapewear designed to hide love handles.
