Muffin top is the body slang used for the lower belly hip fat that gets accumulated right above your butts. If you’re struck on love handles and muffin tops and they’re keeping those 6-packs away from you, and then here I have 7 exercises that can shred those muffin tops to pieces!
Let’s have a look at the best exercises to get rid of muffin top:
1 . Candlestick Dipper
This is the 1 muffin top killer move and I can’t thank Pop Pilates trainer CasseyHo enough for introducing this exercise to me! As this exercise works on your oblique muscles, you will definitely get results with this one!
How do it:
Get on your knees with your abs tight and back straight. Use cushioning under your knees if they are sensitive.
Now straighten your right leg to your side. Make sure your knee is straight and not drooping towards the floor.
Now raise your hand straight overhead and bind your fingers together. Keep the first 2 fingers joined in a Charlie’s Angels pose.
Now bend at your waist to your left side. Go as low as you can and try to be parallel to the floor.
Rise up back into the starting position.
Do 15 dips and then repeat on the other side.
2 . Russian Twist
Russian Twist is one of the best exercises to get rid of muffin top. It strengthens your abs, tones your oblique muscles and helps in shredding that muffin top. You can do it with weight and without weight depending on your level.
How do it:
Sit on your butt with your feet pressed into the ground and knees bent.
Now lean back a little.
Grab a dumbbell or a kettlebell in your hands. If that is too much for you, just join your hand together.
Now, rotate that dumbbell (or your hands) from side to side, twisting your torso with it.
Do 10 twists each side.
3 . Butt Lift
This is my all-time favorite exercise for muffin top. It tones your lower abs, obliques, muffin tops and lifts your butt.
How do it:
Lie down on the floor on your back with your feet flat on the floor and knees bent.
Now lift your butt up until you get a straight line from knees to shoulders.
Lower down again.
Do it 15-20 times.
4 . Hip Dips
