Hit These 4 Moves to Tone Up the Love Handles

One of the hardest-to-reach areas of the core is one so many women have trouble toning: the love handles, otherwise known as the obliques. Having a bit extra in this area is totally normal, but finding the right movements to stretch, elongate, and sculpt the obliques is possible—and with the Pvolve Method there’s no harsh crunching required.

You'll need three pieces of equipment to complete these moves: the slant board, heavy ankle weights, and the p.ball. Hit each regularly and soon enough, you’ll feel a difference in throughout your obliques. 


How to Tone Love Handles - Side Hydrant | P.volve

Put your heavy ankle weights on and start in a p.sit position on the slant board. Put your right arm up at a 90-degree angle and lift your right leg on an angle at the corner of the board. Lift your right leg to a hydrant position 90-degrees. Squeeze your arm down as you stretch leg back, engaging your right oblique.
Repeat 8 times on each side.


How to Tone Love Handles - Superwoman | P.volve

Ground yourself with both feet on the slant board. Put your arms above your head in superman position level so you can see them in your peripheral vision. Keeping your right leg straight, hover it leg 2-3 inches above the slant board. Lift your right leg and both arms up 1-2 inches making sure your arms don't go behind your ears. Engage your back and side muscles as you work.
Complete 8 reps on each side.


How to Tone Love Handles - Side Plank | P.volve

Pull your p.ball up between your thighs and lay on one side. Lift up into a side plank position. Engage your side body and use your top arm to lift up one inch, pause, then return down to neutral.
Repeat 8 times on each side.


How to Tone Love Handles - Side Squeeze | P.volve

Start on your knees with the p.ball on with one leg extended straight to the side and the other bent under hips at 90 degrees. Extend arm straight in the air and lift arm and leg together at the same time, squeezing and engaging your side body. Repeat 8 times on each side.
