Losing weight can be a difficult challenge. While some might find it easy to tackle the extra weight around arms and thighs, losing weight around the belly area can be slightly difficult. It may take a lot of hard work to lose belly fat. While there is no shortcut to getting rid of belly fat and love handles, there are some exercises that definitely help to make the process of losing fat much easier. Here's taking a look at reducing love handles by working out at home.

Bicycle crunches

This is the most effective way of getting rid of love handles. Lie flat on the ground and press the lower back towards the floor. Lift your shoulder blades off the ground. Twist your upper body to the right as you pull your right knee in. Simultaneously keep your left leg straight. Return to the starting position and repeat to the right.
