If you can’t lose the love handles no matter how hard you’ve tried, then do exactly what is shown in this video and it will happen faster than you think. The key to getting rid of fat around the waist is to realize that it too, just like all body fat, is something that can be done with persistence and a few important strategies. While there is no such thing as love handle exercises or exercises to burn lower belly fat, there are things you can do in and out of the gym to see results much faster.
The first thing you have to do to get rid of fat around the waist or love handles is take a close look at how you’re eating. Nutrition is and always will be the number one priority when it comes to getting ripped and losing body fat. All too often, people want to skip this part of the equation because it is the one that is most difficult to stay consistent with, but it’s where all the difference matters.
Many people will turn to different kinds of diets in order to lose fat fast. The problem with most diets is that they are temporary solutions to a long term problem. And even when you follow the “rules” of the diet plan, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are going to lose fat. For instance, if your keto plan has you avoiding carbs but you still wind up overeating significantly on fats and proteins and are unable to get to a hypo caloric state, you are not going to lose your love handles.
Similarly, if you are following a diet strategy like intermittent fasting as a way of losing the fat around the waistline, be advised that simply eating within the proper window does not guarantee success. Again, if you consume more calories than you are burning off you are not going to burn enough fat to get rid of that around your belly.
The second big nutrition mistake relates to the first and that is, even if you can do everything right with your nutrition but you quit too soon you likely will not see the results you’re looking for. Keep in mind that in men especially, waistline and lower belly fat is the last to go. This pertains to the low back as well. You will first start to see fat loss in the face and neck but only when you’ve been consistent for a long period of time will you see the love handles start to disappear.
Don’t give up too soon just because you don’t see the fat loss in the love handles. Realize that it’s coming, it just will take a bit more time.
As far as training goes, there are some things you can do to get rid of love handles faster. You need to be sure that as the fat loss occurs that the muscles underneath are developed and looking good which will give the appearance of a better looking waistline sooner. Here is where you want to be sure you’re not just doing traditional ab exercises.
Train your obliques.
People often say that doing oblique exercises will thicken your waistline. This isn’t the significant cause of why you have a thick waist, it’s the body fat laying over the top. So that said, be sure to include a healthy dose of rotational oblique exercises and even add in weighted exercises to be sure that you’re building the muscle and training it hard enough to make a difference in its appearance.
Here is where you want to be sure that you’re doing your ab exercises right. The bicycle crunch and russian twists are two moves that many people screw up when trying to train for a trim waistline. Don’t just flip your hands and elbows across your body but be sure to rotate as you do. Lock your hands or elbows in place and rotate your entire torso as you move to really etch in those deep oblique muscles.
Finally, don’t forget the broom stick twist. This classic oblique exercise is great for giving you high quality contractions of the obliques to make them pop out as you lose the love handle fat laying over the top of them.

    Serious question. I struggle with working my stomache i had a varicoselle veins that went from my stomache down into my groin that i had clipped with metal clips when i was 15. So now anytime i do sit-ups or overwork my stomache my whole stomache goes into a cramp which completely debilitates me. I have to lie down and wait for it to go away which sometimes can be up to an hour. Is there anything you can suggest workout wise that could help me as i used to have a 6 pack and now no matter what i do i either end up in pain or giving up.

    Minor note: if you have had lumbar spine issues, don't do Russian twists. I once did Russian twists after recovering from a herniated disc and it screwed me up for the night. When you do twisting movements, make sure to twist the upper body and the pelvis at the same to the same direction; that's the safest and very effective for the obliques; breakdancing type floor work where you are actively moving from one side to another.
