    Good Bye Love Handles!

    Goodbye Love Handles

    OBLIQUE V-UP

    Lie on your side with your body in a straight line. Fold your arms across your chest. Keeping your legs together, lift them off the floor as you raise your top elbow toward your hip. The range of motion is short, but you should feel an intense contraction in your obliques.

    10 repetitions each side [Beginner]

    Goodbye Love Handles

    SAXON SIDE BEND

    Hold a pair of lightweight dumbbells over your head, in line with your shoulders, with your elbows slightly bent. Keep your back straight, and slowly bend directly to your right side as far as possible without twisting your upper body. Pause, return to an upright position, then bend to your left side as far as possible..

    6 to 10 repetitions each side [Beginner to intermediate]

    Goodbye Love Handles

    SPEED ROTATION

    Stand while holding a dumbbell with both hands in front of your midsection. Twist 90 degrees to the right, then 180 degrees to your left. Keep your abs tight and move fast. Bring to center. Alternate the side you start with.

    10 repetitions each side (Intermediate)

    Tonight I trained legs primarily. Couldn’t really film the whole 45 degree leg press. If only my arms were long enough or I had a training partner hah. I did 11-12 reps with 140kg weight plates. Did 5 sets of these.

    Top two are before and bottom two after week 2. Week 3 and 4 to come! These pics are my own progress and not saying my body is good if you get what I mean. I’ll post my eating plan and exercise shortly. Change takes time but when you love fitness and want an amazing body it’s worth the wait! I want to get back to a leaner body, since I have stopped dancing I’ve totally changed physique.
