Melt the Muffin Top: Complete workout for your CORE

6 Comments

Alright y’all.  Summer time is quickly approaching.  While I’ve learned to love my “love handles” and opt for high-waist pants rather than low-rise ones, I still feel a need to address the much dreaded “muffin top.”  Now, we all come in different shapes and sizes and we should embrace our natural curves.  However, excess belly fat and fat storage around the hips is neither HEALTHY nor SEXY.  Belly fat, which is called visceral or intra-abdominal fat, is linked to high cholesterol, high insulin, high triglycerides, high blood pressure and other health problems. You can click here to read up on more health risks of excess belly fat.

Below is a workout I designed that will strengthen your core and lower back and also help provide some definition to you lower waist.  For best results, do this workout 3 times per week for 4 weeks along with 30-45 minutes of high intensity cardio intervals.  I’ve also included some pics of me doing the workout this morning to help guide you.  Try it out and let me know how it goes.  Enjoy!  Luv, Brit 🙂

  1. Great minds think alike!!! (I have the same tennis!)
    I love them, but they are not ideal for me when I am running-they kill my arches! Do you experience the same?

    Great Muffin top reduction moves by the way! 😉

    • hey!!!!!!!!!! great taste – I love these tennis – have 9 pair in different colors BUT I agree, there are terrible for running. I only wear them for group fitness classes and cross training. have a great week!

  2. Love handles? Look at those abs. I love your blog by the way. Very informative and inspiring………….Healthy Journey!

  3. Thanks Brit for the reduction of love handle tips. I just began, what I hope, to be a successful weight loss and healthy living journey. Since I am trying to re-discover my truth and get back to what I used to look like under my “winter coat” (code word for fat), I need tools like the one you armed your readers with. I will take this workout routine and put it to good use. I might even share with my readers as well. Thanks again!!!!!

Let Brit know what's on your mind!
