What is the best workout to get rid of love handles?
The first step is to stop lifting the beer bottle. Alcohol tends to fuel a beer belly, a guarantee of a beer belly.
All I need to do is get rid of these love handles, this flabby stomach. I want to fit in my jeans.
You don’t have to squeeze into skinny jeans.
I just mean the jeans I bought a couple years ago.
Core exercises will strengthen your stomach muscles, but you have to do a lot of cardiovascular exercises to burn off the fat. You need to walk and run about three hours a week to burn enough calories to start burning off stubborn belly fat.
I heard that crunches and sit-ups are good at eliminating belly fat.
Those exercises will tone your stomach and give you six pack muscles, but that’s all for naught if you have so much fat that they stay hidden.
I heard that you have to build the muscles to get rid of them.
After you lose 30 pounds, then the six pack abs built up by all those crunches are revealed. And doing more stomach exercises will make them look great.
Someone told me I need to be planking, but I think those pictures would be too embarrassing.
They mean planking on a stability ball or your forearm to force your abs to hold up your weight. Then you reach down to touch the right knee to the right elbow and vice versa.
Someone said I should deadlift, too.
The squats while weight lifting do work your lower back and abs. That will tone your stomach, and it looks really good after you’re down to the last few points of body fat to lose.
I heard that strength training helps you burn calories, but I only thought it built muscle.
If you build more muscle, it raises your base metabolic rate. Then you’ll burn more calories even when at rest.
But it’s a lot more work than just popping a pill.
