Love handles is an odd term since there’s probably no woman who loves having them.

The term refers to the body fat that accumulates on the hips just above the pelvis (essentially, it’s referencing the area where a man holds a woman during sex).2

To tackle your love handles you need to eat healthy and focus on exercises that targets the area.

Exercises like these:

1. Oblique Press and Reach

One of the most effective for love handles is the oblique press and reach.

As the video briefly shows, you want to perform any sort of variation of kneeling on one knee with the opposite foot out in front of you to form a 90-degree angle.

Keeping your abdominal muscles nice and tight and your back straight, hold a weight in one arm and while extending it straight out in to the air, bend your body to the side and touch your fingertips to the ground.

Repeat in sets of 12 to 15.

2. Side Plank Crunch

Beginning on your right elbow and your foot slightly in front of your left, remember to keep your core nice and tight throughout.

Complete the exercise by pulling your right knee up towards your chest and proceed to crunch your left elbow towards it.2

Finish by bringing it back out to the side plank position and repeat this in sets of three, around 10 to 12 times.

3. Plank up-Downs

Get in to that familiar plank position with your arms out straight and directly underneath your shoulders, squeezing your rear and pulling your abs tight in to your back.

Then, beginning with one arm, lower it down in to the mat so that your forearm is taking your weight.

Follow this with the other arm and then move back up in to the normal plank position.

Repeating this is great for tightening your core.
