Let Go of Those Love Handles! A Yoga Sequence to Help Tone Your Tummy

Jun 18 2015 - 3:06am

Muffin top, love handles, tummy tire — whatever the name, it's not something many of us want to hold onto. While strength-training moves that target this area won't diminish belly fat entirely — cardio is also key [1] — building muscle mass helps your body burn more calories. When you finally lose the body fat around your middle, core-toning poses like these will reveal a sleek and strong physique. As a bonus, this sequence will also strengthen the arms, butt, and thighs.
