Tone Your Love Handles With Three Side Planks to Work Your Obliques

How to Tone Your Love Handles

Muffin top. Spare tire. Love handles. That extra jiggle around the waist may have a lot of endearing nicknames, but that doesn't mean we actually love it. Unfortunately you cannot pick and choose where you lose weight, but you can tone troublesome areas.

To lose weight at your waist, you must commit to cardio workouts to help you lose fat all over, and you also need eat a clean diet. Toning up the muscles under those love handles will both strengthen your core and give you a firmer look through your torso. Here are three of our favorite variations of the side plank that will help create a shapely waist.
