Take It to the Gym: Printable Love Handle Workout

I know not everyone likes to do ab work next to his or her laptop. I know I am unique in this case. For all of you that go to the gym and want a little guidance (not from your iPod - but a tangible piece of paper) here is a print out version of the Love Handles workout. Now you can really take it with you where ever you choose to exercise.

Pilates Twist: 10 sets

  • Keep reaching energy out the top of your head.
  • Twist with just the ribs, not the pelvis.







Can Can: 10 sets












  • Really pull your navel to your spine as you straighten your legs

Twisted Crunch: 10 times, each side

  • Make sure to lift both of your shoulders evenly off the floor









Side Plank and Thread the Needle: 3 times each










  • Really lift the pelvis up
  • Press the hand firmly into the ground
  • Scoop though your abs to "thread the needle"

Dumbbell Side Bends, 10 sets

  • Make sure to bend just to the side, not forward or backward.
