Love handles, like most types of abdominal fat, can be quite challenging to get rid of, and for many may hold even after you’ve lost weight elsewhere in your body. But, contrary to popular belief, targeting your abs with crunches or even targeted exercises for your obliques will not specifically reduce fat in your problem areas. This workout is effective because it’s fast paced and designed to target both the rectus abdominals and the transverse abdominals. To burn fat, you must do more then just crunches and situps. Complete your dream physique with these 10 moves that will carve up your core fast.

Reps: 20 sec.
