If you have love handles and want to officially get rid of them once and for all, you are going to want to sit down and watch this step by step solution for losing this lower abdomen fat for good. This is a stubborn area of fat for both men and women, but is particularly problematic for guys since it is the area that they store fat most readily. This also means that it is the last to come off when trying to drop body fat percentage.
The key to getting rid of this belly fat however is to first identify the main problem. Every single time it is your nutrition and diet approach that just isn’t good enough.
No amount of cardio in the world is going to help you overcome a bad diet in the long run. You have to have a more responsible approach to what you are putting into your mouth if you want to get rid of love handles. Remember, just because it has a name and a location doesn’t mean that it’s something unique. At the end of the day it’s just body fat. Every time you accumulate more fat around your waist then you want, it is because you are not establishing the caloric deficit required to burn fat adequately.
This is solved by focusing on improving your nutrition to accomplish this goal.
Now you may have heard about the 80/20 rule when it comes to achieving a goal. Be good 80% of the time and that will be enough to get you almost to the finish line. Not really the case here. Because love handles tend to be the last area to go when dropping body fat, you really have to be better than that. I’m not saying it’s not good to start off with these goals, but you will ultimately need to be sharper if you want to rid yourself of this waistline and low back fat permanently.
So how do you get closer to a 90/10 effort on diet. Think about it in terms of 10 meals. For every nine that you eat that are in line with a proper fat loss diet, feel free to indulge a bit on your 10th. This will help you to keep your sanity while achieving the body fat levels low enough to lose the love handles. I definitely advise you to do this while still eating carbs too. This is something that many people make the mistake of when trying to get to lower body fat percentages. Carbs are helpful in so many ways.
Not only do they help you to maintain that consistency needed to lose fat and keep it off but they help control cortisol levels in your body. When cortisol gets too high it gets very difficult to mobilize fat and the weight stays on. Keep a 2:1 ratio however of fibrous carbs to starchy carbs at all times on your plate and you’ll be making sure not to overdo it when it comes to achieving your goals while still enjoying your meals.
When it comes to training you have to do three things right.
First, you must evaluate your training split. Look, I am as big a fan as any of the PPL split. Heck, even a bro split can be done effectively too if you know how to stagger your exercises. That said, neither is even close to ideal if you want to prioritize body fat loss. Here something like PHA or peripheral heart action training is great at getting you to lose fat and build muscle at the same time.
Choose compound exercises that alternatively work the upper and lower body and perform them in sequence with no rest in between. About 6-7 exercises should do it when creating a circuit. The weights you use can be changed up quickly in between sets to keep the load appropriate for the exercise that you are doing. After all exercises are complete. then take a brief rest and repeat for a total of 2-7 rounds.
Next, you have to train your obliques. Forget what anyone else has told you about oblique exercises giving you a thick waist. This is not true. It’s the fat laying over the top of them that is doing that. Get rid of that fat through the steps outlined above and keep training the obliques as shown and you will create a visually tapered waistline that looks amazing.
Finally, while fasted cardio is something many rely on to get rid of love handles, remember – it’s always about the nutrition first. If the eating is in place then the fasted cardio can have an impact, especially with these areas of stubborn fat. Most research shows a net net effect with more fat being burned during a fasted cardio session but less afterwards. That said, the additional in-session boost in the absence of insulin can help with those final percentage points of body fat that are keeping the stubborn fat.
