How the **** do you get rid of them? I've been cutting weight, getting in much better shape, but I don't think I've lost 1 oz. of my love handles. I'm 5'11" and right around 200 lbs., I'm pretty muscular but cannot get rid of them bastards. Any advice?

you gotta do oblique workouts.

when you do situps touch your elbow to the opposite knee.

get a broom stick run it across your shoulders and twist at a steady pace (do not exceeed your range of flexability)

also get a dumbell put a bit of weight on it (whatever your comfy with) lay that are straight down by your side and bent to your side (lowering the weight) then straighten out. do this to each side about 3 sets of 20 on each side with 20lbs.

Working one part of your body won't work. You lose weight evenly all over. You just got to lose that extra weight.

Yeah I know what you're saying but this is the only spot left that I have any fat on.

It's the same thing for me, I'm developing a six pack, but cannot get rid of the damn fat on the side.

There are layers of fat. Just like a normal belly of fat you cant make it go away with sit ups. anything else is bs
Genetics play a big part in them. But you can get rid of most with a proper diet, and cardio.
