Love Handles Workout At Home: 30-minute Yoga Fusion. (video)

Welcome back to Yoga Fusion! Today we’re doing a love handles workout at home – we focus on our sidebodies; our side abs, our outer thighs.

We’re inundated with abs and glutes workouts but love handles? These are rarer. So let’s do some different moves while focusing on today’s intention “try something different!”

Love Handles Workout At Home: Try Something Different!

Here’s how we’re gonna be different in today’s session:

  • First, we’re targeting a body part while doing yoga, which is not that common.
  • Second, we’re specifically targeting love handles, not the usual abs and butt.
  • Third, we focus on being playful, checking in with our bodies, finding out what we like, what makes us feel good. This is an opportunity to explore, to get a bit out of our usual routine, to see things from a different angle.

Today’s yoga love handles workout invite us to explore and be playful.

To get out of “same old same old” and see things from a different perspective. Even simple, everyday things like the way you greet your husband or wife after work. So if say, you’re always greeting your husband or wife with a kiss on the cheek, why not try double kisses? Or a kiss on the hand or mouth? Or a kiss and a hug? Or just a hug?

Anyway, you have a full 30 minutes to think about what you’re gonna try to do in a different way!

So if you’re ready, let’s do it!

It’s hard to do yoga without a downward dog:

Here we have the clams, not a traditional yoga exercise but great for your sidebody!

And it’s hard to find a better love handles exercise than the side plank! Add leg lifts to make it harder! (Check this out for different types of planks.)

And don’t forget to twist, make those side abs work a bit more:
