Tire around the waist…
You name it, all of us deal with this stubborn fat around our sides that truly limits our attractiveness, and nobody wants that ;)
So how do we get rid of this gunk?
Again, nutrition is #1:
1.) Eat every 2-4 hours for a total of 4-6 meals per day (4 meals every 4 hours to maximize fat loss)
2.) Eat core meals anytime and most of the time (lean proteins, healthy fats, and green veggies or fruits) with lots of water (1-2 cups of water before and between every meal). Do not consume any starchy or sugary carbs except for breakfast or within 3 hours of intense activity, but to be honest, limit these altogether if you want to melt away stubborn fat FAST!
3.) Make sure to have 1-2 fists of lean protein (1 for women, 2 for men) consisting of anything that had a face and a mother that ran, fly, or swam) and at least 1-2 fists of anything green and from the ground at each and every meal (spinach, romaine lettuce, asparagus, green beans, broccoli, etc.)
But, you do need to work those obliques (or side abdominals) so that when you remove that fat you can see some nice toned muscle.
I’m not a big fan of side crunches as they have very little functional carryover. Rather I love side pillars/planks as they work you shoulders, hips, and core at the same time.
Specifically, I love the side plank with a reach and rotation as it works both functions of your obliques: lateral flexion and rotation! This means you work those love handles harder for every effort thus more bang for your buck baby!
