    Ungas: Not really, like what Karding said, it really doesn't work that way. Side crunches will work your obliques well.

    Just like any other muscle, though, bulging fat cells are ON TOP of the muscle, by building up the muscle UNDERNEATH the fat, you'll probably end up with a bigger gut/lovehandle than before. You'll need to burn off that excess fat in order for the love handles to disappear, there's no muscle there, there's nothing to exercise.

    For most people, even if you don't do crunches, you'll have a nice waistline if you keep the bodyfat in check. There's no such thing as spot reducing since our body stores and expels fat in a uniform manner. Our midsection seems to be the "softest" spot for us since there's no underlying skeletal support behind it and the muscle around that area is relatively thin compared to our chest, back, limbs etc..

    Ab crunches, by the way, is scientifically proven to be one of the least productive ab exersizes around since it works the lower hip flexors more vigorously than the rectus abdominis itself.

    You can do hundreds and thousands of situps a day, without losing the fat underneath the skin that's on top of the muscle, the handles are there to stay.

    I lost quite a few of my lovehandles by dieting, i hate ab exercises, I do reverse cruches and lower hip roll 2-3x a week only... but 1 month of dieting took out a big chunk of my love handles, i no longer have a bulge at the side of my pants... I need to go on if I have to get rid of the ones nearer to my lower back...

    Back n traps ako kanina, pero what does squats got to do with ur back workout?

    Its been 3 years since the last time I performed deadlifts. Kanina nagumpisa ako sa 105lbs ulit. I used to lift 165lb back then, hay buhay. I know 165lbs is nothing compared to most ppl but its a big jump from 105lbs.

    Wala, binanggit ko lang na mahilig ako mag squats at deads :P

    Mahina ako sa bench, will experiment more sa position kung ano mas OK... Dumbells lang gamit ko usually sa chest...

    Sa deads, i lift around 80KG right now (di ko alam kung ilan yung long bar... ilan lbs/kg nga ba yun?)... Sarap ng feeling mag deads, buong likod, arms at legs sunog.... Sa squats ganun din...
