8-Minute Standing Workout for Love Handles for Men and Women

Do you want to get rid of ugly love handles? Well, doing this standing workout several times a week can flatten your love handles.

You see, this workout won’t just build your oblique/ side ab muscles, but it’ll also lower your body fat percentage. A lower body fat percentage will shrink your waistline and tighten your entire body.

It’s worth noting that standing exercises are more effective than lying exercises because they engage more muscle groups.

For instance, standing elbow to knee crunches activate your ab, oblique, and leg muscles while bicycle crunches only activate your ab and oblique muscles.

Make sure you read the instructions and watch the demonstrations below the video before doing the workout.
