Later, Love Handles


You don’t have to have a love-hate relationship with side flab –you want it gone. Here is the move that will help you nix it for good.

  1. Swimming:
    1. Start by lying on your belly with arms extended overhead and legs long behind you.
    2. On an inhale, lift your right arm and left leg at the same time.
    3. Exhale and lower limbs down, then inhale while lifting opposite leg ad arm.
    4. Continue switching arms and legs for 8 slow reps per side, then hold both arms and legs in the air and alternate lifting them quickly, 8 times per side, as if you were really swimming.
    5. Lower down and rest for a few seconds.
    6. Repeat the entire sequence.
  2. Locust:
    1. Lengthen your arms back by your waist, palms facing in.
    2. On an inhale, lift your upper body and legs.
    3. Hold for a count of 5 deep, full breaths, then lower back down.
    4. Rest for 1 breath before lifting up again.
    5. Repeat 3 times.
