An Exercise Routine To Help Reduce Side Fat

oblique-exercise

 

People love to hate muffin tops and love handles; that’s just the way it is. They can be hard to get rid of, especially if you aren’t doing the right exercises. It is very desirable to have a toned midsection, and you need to do a combination of different workouts in order to make that goal a reality.

 

It is near impossible to reduce fat in one small area of the body. You typically lose weight from a general area or several areas in the body. A person with one body type may lose fat around the middle quicker than someone with a different body type. It is all about finding a regimen that works for you.

 

To help you get rid of side fat, we have a great exercise routine that works to tone your abdominal obliques, the muscles under the fat. Don’t rely solely on this routine to get rid of side fat. It is beneficial for you to consistently do cardiovascular exercises to lessen the fat around your midsection.

 

Side Plank Hip Dips:

This exercise helps to strengthen your core and really works your obliques. It is best to do these on a yoga mat or cushioned surface so that you aren’t putting stress on your elbow. Complete 15 reps on each side for three sets. See the video below for instructions.

 

 

Side Bend With Dumbbells:

It is very easy to do this exercise incorrectly. You want to ensure that you are targeting the right muscle groups, so make sure that your movements are controlled. Do 12 reps on each side for three sets. See the video below for instructions.

 

Side Crunches:

One of the best things you can do to strengthen your sides is to hold the contraction for one second at the eccentric portion of the exercise. Do 15 of these crunches on each side for three sets. See the video below for instructions.

 

Heel Touches:

This is a very easy oblique exercise. If you are ever lying on the ground and want to get a quick workout in, these will be your go-to! See the video below for instructions.

 

Russian Twists:

You don’t want to rush this exercise, especially if you have a sensitive back. This exercise really tones your entire midsection. When you twist to either you side, that is when you feel the burn in your obliques! See the video below for instructions.

 

Oblique V-Ups:

This is one of the best exercises to target the obliques. This exercise works on strengthening your core, while simultaneously increasing mobility in the hips and lower back. See the video below for instructions.

 

You can do this exercise routine once or twice a day. This workout will help you strengthen your obliques, but it is integral for you to also do cardio to help get rid of side fat. Let us know how you liked the workout in the comments below.

    Q: Before I discovered your site, I began using the brand 'ali' pills to lose weight because of the issues with anal leakage I stopped taking the pill and performed a Full Body Cleanse. soon after completing the regimen, I began getting abdominal pains on my left side and soon after I eat, my stomach begins to make strange noises and I have had diahrrea for several weeks now. Is there anything you can recommend to help remedy this? Have you heard of any side-effects associated with the 'ali' pills? I went to a medical doctor and he suggested that it could be ulcers, and placed me on medication. I only get pains when I eat any solid foods. It feels like my stomach is bloated and I get lots of gas. Soon after I eat, I get strong cramps that drain my energy. Thank you for your wonderful service.

    A:

    Please explain what solid foods are you eating! I recommend a daily regimen consisting of: Alkaline FormulaDigestion Aid, Electric Greens ComboAlchemist Golds (1 tablespoon in every glass of water) p.s. - drink vegetable juice daily. Try and drink cabbage, carrot, and brussel sprout juice as much as possible. Drink aloe vera juice daily too! Read our "ULCERS" article on our site as well. Everything you need is at DHerbs.Com!

    Q: I know that I need to do another Full Body Detox , but I'm wondering what the metaphysical reason is behind most of my ailments showing up on the right side of my body? I have sinus pressure, and discomfort which cause ear clogging, pain at the base of my head (not sure if that is connected to the sinus issue), lower back and flank pain, and follicles on my ovary (I have on both as well as fibroids), but most of my discomfort is on the right side of my body. What does this mean?

    A:

    Our article 'Right Side vs. Left Side' should be up on the site next week, Beloved. It answers your inquiry. Please stay tuned to Dherbs.com! Article will be a "Featured" article. The right side is the masculine side and deals with feelings of aggression, assertiveness, responsibility, active rather than receptive, etc. Taking on too many masculine attributes. More rational than emotional and intuitive.

    Q: What type of exercise is good for working out while on the Full Body Detox program? I'm afraid I won't have much energy and stamina for a high impact workout on a raw food diet. Any suggestions???

    A:

    Thanks for the question,

     

    Exercises recommended:

    ·        Yoga

    ·        Light resistance training

    ·        Walking

    ·        Biking

    ·        Swimming

    ·        Trampoline

    ·        Pilates

    ·        Aerobics 

     

    It's best to keep exercise to a minimum. When you exercise your body pulls blood away from your core and into your limbs (fight or flight response). That directs blood away from your healing response. Also high impact or weight training requires more calories and more protein which will over work the organs that should be using their energy healing.

    Q: I am 6'0 starting day 1 at 246, on day 4, I hit 236. But for 3 days I am at the same weight. Do I need to workout to lose more weight, if so what are some good workouts for my body type. Most of my weight is in the midsection.

    A:

    Hi, thanks for the question.

    Your body does not like rapid changes in weight and will fight you along the way. These are called plateaus. It's too early to panic and by the time you get this email I am pretty sure your weight will have shifted again. You cannot spot lose weight. Your body picks and chooses where it gains weight and where it loses weight. sometimes they aren't the same places.

    Working out always helps the process. Here is a blog I wrote, Three Successful Fitness Habits for Sustained Weight, on three successful habits for sustained weight loss.  

    Fitness for weight loss is interval cardio training and circuit weight training.

    Example of both would be:
    Interval training on bike.
    3 minute warmup
    30 seconds of high speed
    1 minute of recovery
    repeat for 15 minutes till 30 minutes.

    Circuit training (five rounds-1 minute rest in between rounds)
    Mountain climbers x 20
    Pushups x 20
    Squats x 20
    Bent over rows x 15
    Crunches x 25

    Without knowing your body type, sports history, and health history I cannot recommend any specific exercise. I run a highly successful internet fitness/health coaching company www.theveganeffect.com. If you would like a free consultation you can fill out the health history form on the main page and I will have one of my fitness coaches contact you.

     

    Hope this helps,

It will be a little over a month since the last one?

    A:

    There's no specific time frame to abstain from performing a cleanse. You can take the cleanses back to back, but not at the same time.

    Q: Dherbs, I am experiencing some degree of headaches on my forehead on the left side. I have had about four surgeries for this thinking its related to my sinus, but no relief. I recently started to get some headaches on the back of my head, and neck pains. I took an MRI, and I am not sure of the result the doctor said it seem to be some abnormality on the back of my head may be from birth, he refered me to a nurogolist. Give me some advice on what I can do with herbs, I have already taken your Total Male Cleanse, your Weight Release Cleanse, the Full Body Detox, and just about to finish your Respiratory Cleanse, about 8 more days to go after I have your 10 Day Supreme Cleanse to start next week give me some advice on what course to take alternatively.

    A:

    How long have you been experiencing the headaches? You've taken some powerful cleanses thus far. Regardless of what cleanse, start drinking Headache Tea daily. I make it, and add maple syrup, lemon juice, and chill it. This helps for my headaches which are sporadic.

    Q: I've been eating vegan (mostly raw) for nearly 2 years. In the first year, I lost about 60 pounds. I still have about 50 more to lose and it hasn't budged in almost a year. I hear conflicting info about what sort of exercise would be best - cardio vs. strength. And any time I up my exercise, my hunger gets out of control. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Thanks for the question. The most efficient way to lose weight from working out are high rep/low weight circuit training and through HIIT (high intensity interval training).

    Your goal should be to increase metabolism and fat burning potential throughout the day. Both HIIT and circuit weight training are both effective. To be maximized you should exercise for 1 hour 5-6 times a week. You could alternate between cardio days and circuit training days. Here is an example.

     

    Mon: HIIT

    Tues: Circuit training

    Wed: rest

    Thurs: HIIT

    Fri: Circuit training

    Sat: HIIT

    Sun: Rest

     

    Here is an example of a circuit and  HIIT

     

    Circuit. 15-20 reps 1 minute rest between sets. repeat for 20-30 minutes. (feel free to use the template and build your own)

    Upper: pushups

    Lower: Squats

    Core: Crunches

    Plyo: Burpees

    Upper: Clean and press or curl to press

    Lower: Alternating weighted lunges

    Core: Reverse crunches

    Plyo: Step ups 

     

    HIIT (can be done on almost any cardio machine)

    3 minute warmup

    -30 second sprint 

    -1 minute recovery

    *Repeat for 15 minutes to 30 minutes*

    3 minute cool down

    Top fat loss mistakes for cardio and weight training

    Cardio: Doing 1 speed with no resistance cardio. This kills me. Your fat burning potential begins and ends when you do. If it doesn't challenge you it will not change you. Atleast put the resistance on mountain or random. 

    Weight: Resting too long in between sets. Super sets are key here. Work one set while resting the other. Example of a superset is chest press and seated row together. Quad machine and ham machine. Pullup and shoulder press. 

    When you ramp up your metabolism you are going to have to eat more. Losing weight isn't about calories. Losing weight is about nutrient density. Here is a blog I did on eating for fitness and getting lean. http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/qa-eating-for-fitness-getting-lean

    Q: I wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I took yourTOTAL MALE CLEANSE about 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I did not really receive any health benefits from this session and my problem persists. My problem comes from excessive masturbation--excessive ejaculation. I have burning in my stomach, side, groin area, and testicles. This has been going on for over 4 years. It has gotten better but I am in not even close to being able to have sexual relations with a women. My testicles feel week and tingly most days. When I should be "getting excited" I feel tingling in my abdomen and side. I have tried a remedy from Dr. Lin's herbal supplements and this didn't give any substantial change. Do have any further suggestion?

    A:

    I CAN CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DIDN'T RECEIVE THE BENEFITS YOU WERE SEEKING WITH THE TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. YOU SEE, YOUR PROBLEM IS PSYCHOSOMATIC BUT MOSTLY PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EMOTIONAL IN NATURE. IT APPEARS YOU HAVE A 2ND CHAKRA IMBALANCE THAT NEEDS ADDRESSING. MOST OF THE WORK YOU REQUIRE IS ENERGETIC. HOWEVER, PERIODIC PERFORMANCE OF THE FULL BODY DETOX AND TOTAL MALE CLEANSE AND HEALTHY DIET HELPS REPAIR THE PHYSICAL DAMAGE FROM EXCESS MASTURBATION. I HIGHLY AND URGENTLY RECOMMEND YOU SCHEDULE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION SO WE CAN GET TO THE ROOT OF THIS PROBLEM. YOUR REMEDY IS NOT SOLELY IN A PRODUCT, BUT IN YOURSELF!
