    Okay Im not sure if they are the same thing or not but. I know how to work my lower abs and my sides But what about the part farther back?

    Im talking about not directly on your side but going back right before the small of the back.

    ya know, those unsightly fat pockets. i just can't seem to figure out how to target them and work them.

    Please, anyone know how to get rid of thw 'back handles'

    thanks

    I think this was discussed a few days ago...or at least something similar. I'll try to find it.

    I think the agreement was you Can not reduce fat in just one spot...you have to lower all your body fat, but someone offered an exercise that I have been doing since and I think it helps out to tone the area.

    I think there was some agreement about being genetics what determines where you will store your fat....I do have your problem, so i'll keep you posted it if I find the "magic solution"!

    I love this exercise. It really tightens up the area behind your obliques.

    Reverse Woodchopper:
    Start with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Hold a light dumbbell in both hands to one side of your body so it is just outside your knee. Hold your arms straight.
    Keeping your arms straight and your eyes forward, lift the dumbbell up and across your body in an arcing motion as you straighten your legs. Finish with both arms stretched over your shoulder and your opposite heel off the floor as if you were about to begin chopping wood. Slowly lower the dumbbell to the starting position.
    Do 15 reps on each side
