Me in April 2014.

Since January this year, I started twisting my waist side to side holding 4kg and 2kg dumbbells to get rid of my love handles. My muscles have started to build up under the fat and my stomach feels firmer.

I also do stand-up crunches and knee claps to target my lower mid-section on my previous blog.

  • Standup crunches: I do 10 sets of 100.
  •  I do twists exercise once a week. I do 10 to 15 reps of 100 once a week.
  • The knee clap: I do 10 sets of 30. I stand with your legs slightly apart and put my hands out in a 90-degree position above my knee and squeezing in my belly as tight as possible. I move my legs vigorously on the spot whilst my knees are touching the palm of my hands.
  • I do stand up crunches and Knee clap exercises once a week.
