And strengthen those all-important muscles in the process.

Canada's obesity rates have tripled in that last 30 years, and by 2019, an estimated one out of five Canadian adults will be obese, according to a study published recently in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

But thanks to Women's Health fitness editor, Jen Ator, there are quick 15-minute workout videos that will help target specific muscles, without hurting yourself.

Watch the video above to find out how to target love handles and lower back muscles.
