Blast your love handles with these 4 kettlebell exercises! In this tutorial video, you will learn exactly how to perform each love handle exercise properly. Technically know as our obliques, or side abdominals. The great thing about these kettlebell side abs moves, is that they will also strengthen your entire core. Try incorporating them into your love handle workouts in a circuit for 30-60 seconds each, or 10-20 reps each.
1. KB Strikers - Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Circle the kettlebell around your waist, then raise it up, catching the bell in one hand, while driving your opposite elbow parallel to shoulder hight. Repeat.
2. KB Side Plank + Thrust - Get into a side plank position. Place KB on you hip & hold it there, while thrusting down & up.
3. 1-Arm KB Swings - Just like the common 2 handed swing, but this variation will challenge your core in a whole new way. High fat burning too!
4. KB Everest Climbers - Start in a plank position, with your hands on the KB. Performing everest or mountain climbers like this creates instability. This simple grip change will force your side abs to engage more, than you standard climbers.
Incorporate these 4 moves consistently into your ab routines, and you can kiss those love handles goodbye! Of course, the only way to truly get rid of them for good, is to combine a proper fat burning exercise program & clean eating. Seems complicated right?
