Love Handles or Muffin Top

Hey there, it's Monday and I'm fired up and ready to go. How about you? We all  have heard the terms "love handles" or "muffin top" and both are used to describe the little bulges around the waist area.

The love handles is an endearment when pinching at waist in fun with your sweetie. Now the muffin top is a bit more pesky especially when that bulge spills over in our slacks and pants. It's a trouble spot.

Not to worry, there are exercises that help to reduce the bulge of the love handles or muffin top. Simply do 2-3 sets counting to 10 of these exercises that target the waistline:

--->Twist the waist from side to side
--->Do side bends from right to left that target the waist really well
--->Use 3-5 lb free weights in side bends for added resistance
--->Lay on your side and lift up in a bend motion on each side

Keep in mind that healthy eating and cutting down on snacks is just as important for any exercise routine. Get ready to look fabulous in those shapely tees, shorts and jeans. Leave the muffin top at the bakery!



  1. I better check which one I need to work on. Like the post.

    1. Yep, and I pinch my waistline to make sure those 'love handles' aren't staging a comeback ;-)
