Love Handles

Winter is melting off gracefully and with it comes, spring bling. My personal choices would be frilly skirts, flowy crop tops, and long beautiful summer gowns.

Of course, this means that the entirety of our holiday feastings requires a wave goodbye. Our bodies have a sweet spot it loves to store fat in, the waist and hips. Having heavier waist means higher fat decomposition in one certain area.
There are two factors to look into, one being health risks, and the other, love handles.

This is a sweet name for an unwanted fat-lump on either side of the body. It also hinders the appearance of the certain types of garments we wear.

With just a few exercises, we can shed off the side fat in no time. Let us look into the workouts which have really good effects on love handles.
