    These types of questions are best answered in person and with a more hands on approach.

    I agree, "love handles" are literal, if you can hold onto them, yes. If you cannot, no. I would guess you cannot hold onto them, so I say no.

    Yes, they're love handles. Small ones, but love handles just the same. There is no bone that sticks out that far, so thats all it could be.

    Interesting. Take a look at this realjock guy in the link below. Does this guy then have handles too given the protrusion? Curious about perceptions here. Sometimes I think it depends on how high you wear your shorts....

    That a tough one. You would need to pinch his sides while he's flexing to tell. Or use fat calipers.

    I don't think that LethalJack has an ounce of fat on him; those are exceptional obliques!

    I think you have small love handles, but so do I. They are so damn hard to get rid of...! icon_mad.gif

    Two things. Those are not love handles. Jesus christ.

    Second. Some people's iliac crests rest higher and slightly wider creating a biological love handle if you will. This is more common in pear shaped people (i.e., mostly women but not exclusively)

    bruzintuc saidIf they jiggle when you jump up and down, they're fat. If they don't, they obliques. If you can grab on, they're love handles. It's all in the perception. Don't ask how I know.

    Define "jiggle". Muscle bounces when you jump too. But if you flex your entire body and it still bounces around, it's probably fat.

    Yes, it's nothing major, but technically it's called visceral fat. You don't want too much of that, because it's the unhealthiest place to store fat on the body. It can damage organs (according to Dr. Oz, anyway.) Core strength is much more important than beefy arms and legs, in terms of health.

    If you have no one to love you then they are not love handles...

    Insufficient data. We need a LOT more pics of this guy... Perhaps covered in baby oil or sweat.

    If a guy can completely grab a handful and ride you like a horse, then they are love handles.
