After that, keeping your torso straight, tilt it backward. Next, bring your hands together and then take them to one side and then the other! Repeat until you feel a burn in your abdominal muscles! This exercise strengthens your abdominal muscles and will help get rid of the excessive side fat.

Side Hip Raises

Side Leg Raises

Get on your side, while making sure that your thigh and legs are touching the ground, and your torso is being supported by your elbow. Next, bring the upper leg upwards, as high as it can possibly go. Bring it back down but don’t let it touch the foot that’s on the ground. Repeat this exercise until you feel the burn. The slower you go, the harder and more productive it will be!
