Obliques are situated on the side of your core and is the external abdominal muscle that constitutes the largest part of your abs muscle. Regular crunches may have a slight impact on your sides, but working specifically on your love handles will lead to a chiselled physique, stronger core, tapered waist, and improvement in physical activities like quick movements and twisting.
This muscle is used in a wide range of tasks, including bending and rotating your torso, and also in stabilising and protecting your spine. If you are performing any activity, having solid obliques becomes essential. The moves mentioned here employ varied techniques like metabolic and strength training, which helps you achieve that killer midsection.
Along with physical training, it is crucial to change your diet as well, which includes cutting down on sugar and consuming food that is rich in fibre and protein. It’s common knowledge that fat gets accumulated the most around the belly area, which requires additional effort to keep the unwanted bulge at bay. Doing regular cardio is beneficial as it burns excessive calories and has an overall effect on the body, which in turn slims down your love handles.
These exercises will channel your core as well as side muscles from every angle to help you do exactly that.
