obliques_workout

We endearingly refer to them as love handles. Or maybe you prefer to call it your muffin top. Either way, excess fat sitting on the sides of the torso is tough to lose.

“You have to cross-train your core like you cross-train the rest of your body,” says celebrity trainer Kira Stokes. Of all the waist-whittling exercises out there, ones that target your oblique muscles will zero in on this area. A general rule to keep in mind: Any move where you’re reaching to the side works your obliques.

But incorporating ones that also hit your upper and lower abs will more effectively sculpt and slim your entire middle section. “Your core works as one complete unit,” Stokes reminds us.

Here, she shares her favorite exercises for getting rid of the extra padding around your middle.

    I got rid of my love handles using $25 body wraps and all I had to do is drink water with it on! Email me at najah_lasha for more info!

      Bunch of crap. Celophane and dehydrating yourself does the same thing. Total rip off.

      • Najah LaShay

        Excuse you, but my wraps don’t dehydrate you. The wrap detoxifies your body, thus shrinking your fat cells. No sweating needed. The water’s job is to help flush out the toxins. So before you give a negative opinion, get your facts. And until then, please excuse yourself from my comment. Have a blessed day!

          Scam. Tried and true and a temporary fix for a long term problem. Try exercising and eating right. I do have my facts straight. Ever wonder why they are a pyramid scheme instead of being sold in stores? If this works so well why are people not flocking to it? Like I said celophane has the same results.

          • Najah LaShay

            It’s most definitely not a scam! I tried one before I even thought of joining my team and I was skeptical too, until the 3rd day of my first wrap results. The only way to gain that fat back is to eat it on and not maintain your health properly. And as for the pyramid, every major company is a pyramid, there’s the CEO, then corporate, then management, then supervisors, then employees. With my company, you don’t work a set number of hours for a set amount of pay. There are no managers or supervisors, just fellow distributors that personally train us to do what we do(which is wrap people, host spa parties, and talk to others about distributorship) and train us to train others. They are leaders, not bosses because leaders need us just as much as we need them, there’s also no limit to how much we can make. If you’re still not impressed, that’s on you, but if you’d like me to prove to you that it isn’t a scam and that we really do make money by helping others, feel free to contact me!

            And also, the reason why it’s not sold in stores is because people like to copy amazing products and make it their own, and our CEO doesn’t like the typical pyramid method of running a business. If he was to do that, it would limit all of us and make us the bad pyramid you’re talking about!

          • No2stupidity

            You apparently have no clue what a pyramid scheme is. If you have to buy the product you are selling is the first indicator. Second you also have to rope others in to selling it -. The pills you sell are nothing but overprice maternity pills. Ever wonder why their is an extremely high turn over rate in reps? Sad that the company has to bombard search engines to cover up all the complaints. No legit job charges you for a product you are to sell.

          • Najah LaShay

            There’s a reason for everything, but obviously you’re not gonna listen to anything I say. And instead of asking questions you throw accusations about a company you aren’t involved in. I love my job and what it does for others; I’m done entertaining your hate. Enjoy your life

    Thanks for sharing.I know you want to look your best, want to be lean, muscular and sexy, especially during the Summer months.I’ve already managed to pack on 22lbs of pure muscle since starting this program,see my review of it:>bestfitnessandmusclebuilding(dot)com/14fl< Best wishes.

  • SusanaAnderson

    Sorry to be the negative Nancy but you cannot spot reduce fat. Don’t get me wrong, these are good exercises but they will only target the muscles underneath the fat. When you lose fat, you lose it from your entire body and this is achieved through correct diet and cardio (mainly your diet) If anyone’s looking for a program that actually works, try the 3 week diet, it’s brilliant. It wont let me post a link on here, so remove the space if you want to check it out:

      Thanks for sharing that program Susana. Not long until summer now and I can’t wait to get started. I always seem to do well when it comes to exercising but always struggle with the diet. (Ice cream is just too damn nice lol!)

    • Fish61324

      Thank You… I’m just gonna leave a comment to reinforce your comment. A lot of people have the misconception that you can target fat loss. When you lose fat, your body decides where it loses fat. Now of course the more you target certain muscles, the bigger and more toned those muscles get and you’re also losing fat in general….. so eventually those muscles start to show, thus making that part of your body look better. But if you’re someone looking to just lose fat and not worried about building/toning muscle… than do some cardio and DIET!! Eating right is much more important than exercising if you’re trying to lose weight/fat.
