Do you know that best love handle exercises are not created specially for love handles, but they usually are use to train your whole body and burn a lot of fats? And the best exercises, that will make you lose love handle and reduce overall fat levels in your body are done with kettlebell. However this is not one of the best workouts for women, but they can practice it too.
A Kettlebell is a Russian piece of equipment that looks like a cannonball with a handle. Typically men use a 35 lb. KB and women use a 25 lb. KB. Because of the design of the KB it is much more versatile than a barbell or dumbbell. And, for those people out there thinking that 35 lbs. is not that much, think again. Because of the off center distribution of the weight a 35 lb. KB feels heavier than a 35 lb. dumbbell.
One of the reasons that KBs are so effective on love handles and everything else is that when you use it there is a cardiovascular element that is missing from standard weight lifting. You will be huffing and puffing in no time and you can burn as many as 20 calories a minute and even 1% of body fat a week!
So, here are a couple of my favorite exercises to melt your love handles though there are actually dozens.
To do the figure 8 is simply stand straight up with legs spread slightly and a KB between your feet. Bend down, pick up the KB and pass it between your legs to your other hand. Stand up and raise the KB briefly to your chest before bending down and repeating the motion.
To do the cross over clean and press stand straight up with legs spread slightly and a KB off to the outer side of your foot. With the opposite hand bend down, grab the KB and in one smooth motion lift the weight over your head before returning the KB to the original position and starting over.
