Two exercises to get rid of love handles

Follow these two exercises to banish that unflattering flab on the sides of your stomach.

 

Bicycle crunches


This exercise works on the sides of your stomach known as obliques.

Lie on your back on a flat surface with knees bent such that they're at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Keep your palms behind the head, with elbows extended toward the sides.

Lift your shoulders off the floor as you bring one knee towards your chest and twist it towards the opposite shoulder.

Extend your other leg straight in the air, as if you're riding a bicycle.

Repeat the step alternating each shoulder.

Begin with 15 repetitions and gradually increase the number of sets.

 

Russian twist


Sit on the ground with legs stretched. Bend your knees and keep your feet flat.

Keeping your back straight, lean back comfortably while contracting your ab muscles.

Now, stretch out your arms in front of you and twist your torso from side to side.

To increase the intensity, tap the floor to the right of your hip and then the left side.

To further increase difficulty, hold weights or a heavy ball in your hands.
