I guess Im wondering why this area in particular?
1. are you trying to get that area ripped up with definition
2. are you trying to build your strength in that area
3. is there are tire there you would rather part with?
I suspect its (3)... which I dont think will be accomplished by trying to target that area with exercizes.
AFAIK, the body stores its fat stores in particular areas... in women it their thighs... for guys its in our love handles.
The only way that area is gonna lose its mass is through cardio.
Targeting those specific muscles groups in that area will merely build the muscle below the fat layer... and result in that area looking even larger...ie. fatter.
I suspect that isnt what you are shooting for.
So you guessed it, there isnt an easy way to drop love handles (besides surgery)... you gotta work the cardio, speed up your metabolism to start ganking fat from those love handle stores...
Of course, the love handle area is the 'last' area which your body will pull fat fuel from... it snatches it from other areas first... like your face fat... which is why most guys notice their face looking great before their bodies
Anyone Feel free to correct me here... im far from an expert.
