Exercise will NOT get rid of love handles. Love handles are fat deposits. Only proper diet combined with cardio will be able to get rid of fat. Exercise works on muscles and makes them stronger and/or bigger. It will do nothing for fat but many people persist in thinking otherwise. Fat, by the way, cannot be lost selectively in only certain areas of your body and not others. It will be lost form the whole body, usually the trouble areas such as your love handles, go last. The place where you gain weight first is the last one to give up the fat. It's lousy but true.
