Any suggestions for getting rid of love handles?

    I've been lifting 3-5 days a week for about 10 months now and everything is going great. My arms are bigger than they've ever been and I'm up to flat benching 85lb DB's.

    But regardless of all the sit-ups I've been doing with the rest of my routine, my love handles don't go anywhere. And because of the size of my back as of late, my body has taken on this goofy-looking hourglass shape. It fucking sucks. Especially because I'm a fairly fit individual overall so the love handles really stick out.

    Is cardio the only true remedy for this?

    Yup - it's fat, so about all you can do to get rid of 'em is to lose more fat...

    :wtc: Yeah I guess you can't really target fat loss. My problem is I can't do much cardio because I have bad asthma. Lifting alone sometimes gets me a little worked up. But I can't run for more than five minutes to save my life. Maybe I'll try working in some bike.

    Can you get a better steroid? I know a lot of guys with Asthma who do endurance athletics.

    Don't do the cardio then! Just reduce the amount of food you eat and keep your protein intake at a decent level.

    I guess I could mention it to my doctor. My previous doctor would just say "Well you only really have asthma attacks when you run, lets prescribe you with a dose of DONTFUCKINGRUNEVERLOL"

    Get a new doctor. Find one that understands "Don't Run" isn't an option.
