I have the same exact problem area! I think most of my problem is eating but working out has helped a little. I HATE it when it hangs over the sides of my pants too. My husband says the same things but it doesn't help the fact that I'm self conscious about it.
This picture is ridiculously cheesy, but it's the only one I could find to describe the work out. I used to do a ton of ab exercises laying down and they were somewhat effective. However, I started using this at the gym and it made a huge difference. I do side exercises as well as lifting my legs straight out (which is the overall most effective for my stomach).
you look great hun but side crunches and bicycles are what target the love handle area.
Those muscles are your obliques I have the same problem I am currently going to the gym daily lifting weights and doing cardio. Just remember if you want to lose fat you need to know where to keep your heart rate or you will only be working your heart and not burning fat. I do different muscle sections everyday but I do core every day!!! Planks are awesome for core. Look up core and oblique exercises
Quoting ma ♥:" What's the best workout to get rid of these flabby sides? :oops: Everyone says belly fat is the hardest ... [snip!] ... idk if this would be considered "belly fat" lmao. This is how I look normally... & This is how I wish to look.. "
I'm no help. I just had to laugh because I do the exact same thing to my sides in the mirror. :oops: I'm like if I looked like this I'd be perfect!
I'd recommend by yoga to help get rid of flab. The most important thing is to eat right and do some aerobic workouts a few times a week, too. The program that helped me learn to do yoga at home is on YogaIsle.com if you wanted to check it out.
