The weather may not be telling us that spring is on it’s way just yet, but it’s never not the time to shop for a new wardrobe. And the only thing that can steal the joy of buying a new pair of jeans is seeing an unsightly body part take center stage. Call it what you will, “muffin top” or the more endearing “love handles”, this is one thing we wouldn’t mind seeing less of! But have no fear, these moves will help you break up with your love handles once and for all!

Lay on the floor with your legs straight out. Stretch your arms above your head and point your toes to the ceiling. Raise your arms toward your toes in one swooping motion as you keeping your shoulders off the floor. Then bring your arms and legs back to the starting position. Do 40 reps.
