You need to opt for the right eating habits and team it with the exercise to get rid of those extra kilos. Here are some exercises you can opt for that will ensure your love handles disappear.

Plank Crunch – Sideways

Although this exercise can be quite difficult to do, it really does work wonders. Start by doing a side plank (lie on one side and lift your body up using one arm). Put your other hand over your head with your elbow folded. Now, bend your outer leg and bend your outer elbow to make them touch. Hold this position for 5 seconds and then return to the side plank position. Do this 20 times in sets of 10.

Front Bends

This exercise is specifically targeted to help twist the abdominal muscles to give them the required exercise. Stand with your legs wider apart than your shoulders. Then bend down on your right side and touch your right hand on your left toe. Raise your left hand upwards and look in that direction as well. Repeat on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side and in 3 sets each.

Bicycle Crunch

This one is relatively easier to do so if you're a beginner you should start with this exercise. Lie flat on your back. Then fold your elbows so that your hands touch your head. Next, try to make your right elbow meet your left knee by folding your knee inwards. Do this on the other side as well. Do this 25-30 times for both the sides.

One Hand Toe Touch

This one can also work rather well if you want to lose weight from your waist. Start by sitting straight with your legs in front of you at shoulder length distance. Fold your right leg so that the sole sits flat on the thigh of your left leg. Stretch your left arm and try to touch your left toe using this arm. Repeat on the other side. Doing this exercise ten times on both sides in sets of 2 should do the trick.
