7 Easy Exercises You Should Do to Lose the Love Handles Without the Gym



Despite their cool name, the unsightly fat that accumulates on the sides of the abdomen does not look healthy. Most people believe that a traditional ab-workout would blast them away because of its venue. That, however, is not the case. To get rid of the love handles, you'll need exercises that explicitly target them.

Perform these 7 exercises recommended by Bright Side to get rid of those love handles. These exercises are intended to target the sides of your abdomen in particular.

Choppers of wood

Standing erect with your legs hip-width apart is the starting point. Place your weight on your left leg and raise a dumbbell up to your left shoulder with both hands.

Steps to take:

* Twist both hands down toward your right hip in a slicing motion. With the twist, allow your feet and knees to pivot. Assume you're cutting down a big tree.

* Lift your hands to their original place.

How many times: On your left hand, repeat this step 20 times. Then, on your right hand, repeat the same move 20 times.

Russian detours

Sit on your buttocks with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground as a starting point. Your torso should be bent back at 45 degrees to the floor in this location. Keep a dumbbell with both hands when in this place.

Steps to take:

* Raise your legs off the ground. Cross your legs at the ankles and lean on your buttocks.
* Rotate your torso to the right and place the dumbbell you're carrying next to your body on the deck.
* Then repeat the process on the other hand. Twist on the left side of the body so that the weight is on the ground on that side.

How many times: 40 times back and forth, for a total of 20 times on either hand.

Side plank hip lifts

Place yourself in a changed side plank position to begin. Your elbow will be on the ground, and your legs and hips will be lying on the ground on your side.

Steps to take:

* Lift the head and shoulders.
* Hold this place for two seconds before lowering your body

15 times on the left side and 15 times on the right.

Crunches on a bicycle

Lie flat on your back with your knees bent upward as a starting point. Interlock your fingers and place your hands behind your back.

Steps to take:

* Lift your right leg to the point that your thighs are almost parallel to the ground and your calves are parallel to the ground.

* Simultaneously rotate your upper body and shift your left elbow toward your raised knee, bringing them together in the center of your body.

* Straighten your right knee, but don't let it touch the ground. Bend your left leg and rotate your upper body so that the elbow of your right arm meets the knee of your left leg when straightening the leg.

30 reps is the number of times you can do it.

Burpees with a jump

Bend your knees and place your palms flat on the ground as a starting point.

Steps to take:

* Kick your feet back in a quick motion to get into a plank, or upper push-up, stance.
* Pull your feet up against your chest after a few seconds of holding the spot. Jump to your feet and clap while simultaneously lifting your hands toward the ceiling.
* Return to the plank position you started with.

How many times to do it: three sets of 15 reps each.

Kneeling vacuum cleaner

Sit with your buttocks resting on your heels to begin. Pull your shoulders back and place your palms by your feet's sides.

Steps to take:
