How To Lose Face Fat FAST! Exercises To Get Rid Of A Double Chin

If you’re reading this, it means you want to know how to lose face fat as fast as possible.

You want to know how to get rid of your double chin or your chubby cheeks or whatever other areas of fat that are preventing you from having a leaner, sexier, thinner overall face.

Alright, I hear ya… and I’m ready to help.

Face fat is one of those topics that seems kinda funny to talk about, but since it’s a problem so many people have (and would like to get rid of), we’re going to take it very seriously here and lay down some important facts as well as a full workout routine complete with the most effective facial exercises.

Ready to do this? Then here we go…

The Ultimate Face Fat Workout Routine

How To Lose Face Fat

This workout routine is scientifically proven to help:

  • Get rid of your double chin.
  • Turn a triple chin into just a double chin.
  • Reduce the size of your chubby cheeks.
  • Create a more chiseled jaw line.
  • Produce more prominent cheek bones.
  • Give you a thinner face.

Sound good? Cool, so let’s get down to the details.

Face Training Frequency & Split

As with any other body part, the ideal training frequency to lose face fat is twice per week. So, I’d recommend training your face on any two non-consecutive days. For example, Mondays and Thursdays or Tuesdays and Fridays would be perfect.

Since your face does not get trained directly during exercises for any other part of your body, you can do these face fat workouts on the same days as you do your usual workouts for the rest of your body.

You can just as easily do them on your off days instead if you prefer. Either way is just fine.

Face Training Workouts & Exercises

The Ultimate Face Fat Workout Routine involves two workouts: Workout A and Workout B. They are to be done as follows:

Face Fat Workout A

  1. Blinking
    4 sets of 15 reps.
    30 seconds rest between sets.
  2. Seated Up-And-Down Nodding
    4 sets of 15 reps.
    1 minute rest between sets.
  3. Incline Eyebrow Raises
    3 sets of 8-10 reps.
    1-2 minutes rest between sets.
  4. Decline Eyebrow Raises
    3 sets of 8-10 reps.
    1-2 minutes rest between sets.
  5. Standing Side-To-Side Nodding
    5 sets of 10-12 reps.
    1 minute rest between sets.
  6. Standing Barbell Curls
    10 sets of 10 reps.
    1 minute rest between sets.
    (Use a weight heavy enough that it causes you to make a strange looking face where all of your facial muscles tighten.)

Face Fat Workout B

  1. Unilateral Blinking
    4 sets of 18-20 reps.
    1 minute rest between sets.
  2. Back-Foot-Elevated Bulgarian Split Nods
    5 sets of 5 reps.
    3 minutes rest between sets.
    (Be sure to get a good stretch in your double chin on the eccentric portion of this exercise.)
  3. Reverse Mouth Open & Closes
    3 sets of 8-10 reps.
    1-2 minutes rest between sets.
  4. Gum Chews
    4 sets of as many chews as possible in 90 seconds.
    3 minutes rest between sets.
  5. Lateral Smiles
    2 sets of 10-12 reps.
    1 minute rest between sets.
  6. Kettlebell Fish-Face Swings
    1 set of 36-40 reps.
    (Just like normal kettlebell swings, only while sucking in your cheeks and making a “fish face.”)

And there you have it… The Ultimate Face Fat Workout Routine.

It combines all of the most proven face exercises with the most proven amount of facial training frequency and volume to ensure you lose your double chin, tighten your chubby cheeks and increase the leanness of your jaw line as fast as possible.

Enjoy your results!

Oh, and one other important thing…

Everything You Just Read Was A Joke!

And I can only pray to God that everyone reading this already figured that out on their own.

Please tell me you knew this was a joke? Pleaseeee?!?!?

If you didn’t (and you were actually sitting there trying out these face exercises), I guess your IQ level isn’t entirely to blame. Alright, maybe it is.

But, if you truly bought my sarcasm as truth, then you must have been exposed to some of the hilarious junk I came across while “researching” this topic. I managed to find a ton of articles, websites and books written solely about the subject of how to lose face fat.

Seriously… ENTIRE books and websites about this crap. And they were being completely serious.

How is that even possible? I guess I could have continued this post and made it long enough to fill a typical crappy eBook, but I’m only joking. These people are dead serious with their silly face exercises and other such nonsense. Pretty scary.

More scary is the fact that there are actually TONS of people out there buying it both in terms of handing over their money, and believing it’s anything but complete and utter bullshit.

Because honestly, anything about face exercises and double chin workouts and books/articles about how to lose face fat are nothing but bullshit.

In case you forgot or just know someone who forgot, here’s why…


Be it face fat, ass fat, back fat, belly fat, arm fat, chest fat or thighΒ fat, it all gets lost as a result of one thing and one thing only… a caloric deficit.

As I explained in my post about creating your perfect diet plan, a caloric deficit is when you consume less calories than your body needs to burn for energy. This then causes your body to burn your own stored body fat as an alternative energy source. As a result, you lose fat.

This isn’t just my opinion, either. It’s the scientifically proven law of thermodynamics, and it’s what causes fat to be lost from your body as a whole.

And by the way, losing fat from your body as a whole IS the only way you can actually lose fat. Toning exercises for specific body parts, magical fat loss products, and spot reduction are all silly myths and/or pointless wastes of time for reasons I’ve already explained right here: The Truth About How To Get Toned

So Then, How Do You Truly Lose Face Fat?

Simple, and it’s the same answer you’d get if you asked about losing fat from any other spot on your body.

The only way to lose fat from your face is by losing fat from your body as a whole. Create a caloric deficit (through diet and/or exercise) and your body will lose fat. At some point, that fat will come off from the exact spot you want it to come off from the most (your face, stomach, legs, back, etc.).

And that’s really all there is to it.

So, if you want to get rid of your double chin, chubby cheeks, and overall fat looking face, you’re just going to have to lose fat, period.

No amount of pointless face exercises (or anything equally dumb) will do anything but make you look like an idiot.

Or really, an idiot with a fat face. πŸ˜‰

  1. When I started reading this I thought “No! This was the one and only guy on the whole internet that I actually trust when it comes to fitness advice and here he is talking about spot reduction, he has sold out!” I cannot believe that I didn’t reject this article anything less than 3 seconds after starting to read it. Once again aworkoutroutine well done on being a real source of information on this topic.

    • @David B: Haha, I figured even if you truly believed this was going to be legit, stuff like “Bulgarian Split Nods” and “Decline Eyebrow Raises” would have to give it away.

      Oh, and when I do sell out, the first crappy overpriced ebook in my long line of crappy overpriced ebooks will be called: How To Turn Fat From Your Face Into Muscle On Your Biceps

      It’s going to be epic.

  2. Dude…thats hilarious as hell
    Ended up laughing loudly in my office…
    Nice piece of advise though…looking forward to your next article

  3. Wow. You fooled me, too. I thought the same thing as David B: the only guy on the internet who doesn’t bullshit around regarding fitness just lost his mind.

    “Kettlebell Fish-Face Swings” is classic.

    The sad thing is that I’m sure there are people who didn’t bother to read the whole article and are in the gym right now doing all of these.

    • @Tom: Ha, seriously? I’m sooo going to start more articles like this just to keep screwing with you guys.

      And let this be a lesson to anyone who just skims the first few paragraphs. If you don’t read all the way through, you may end up doing something hilariously stupid.

      And if anyone spots them in the act, please take pics and/or video.

  4. As i was reading, my friend started doing these exercises ……. luckily i went through the entire article and had the laugh of my life πŸ™‚

    My friend stood there stupefied πŸ™‚

  5. Lol I thought this was real until I got to the eyebrow raises then I knew it was fake and I started laughing

  6. What if your like 100 pounds and you still have a fat face and double chin? I’m sure you wouldn’t want to lose any weight on your body. If this is the case….. What can you do about it? I’m just curious

  7. Loved reading your articles!
    I’m 46 and ran a marathon, but there is nothing that works better
    for me than lifting weights!
    Face exercises!! Very funny!
    Keep up the good work!
    Oh, any extra tips for women my age???

    • Mostly just the same thing I’d tell guys your age… the amount of training your body can handle and properly recover from gets lower and lower the older we get (not to mention risk of joint injuries gets higher and higher), so just keep a closer watch on what you’re doing, how you’re progressing, and how your body feels. It usually know best, so listen to it.

  8. DUDE!! really u had me goin. Afterall, this IS my first time reading your article. Seems to me like ur the GUY when it comes to workout n diet. So i was wondering what do you have to say about the AFTERBURN WORKOUT thingy?? or High-Intensity Workout?? Does it really work??

    • The “afterburn” people talk about is known as EPOC… excess post exercise oxygen consumption, and it’s real and legit and happens after all forms of exercise (more so the higher the intensity).

      HOWEVER, the calorie burn is significantly lower than most people claim (or just incorrectly believe).

  9. Hahaha I should show this to my grandmother. She keeps telling me, “just pump either side of your cheeks or apply oil to your chin and you’ll lose face fat within ten days! And you can also twitch your nose and make constipated-looking face that’ll really help!” and I knew it was BS right from the start. I used to be a fitness freak, but life catches up on you fast. A couple bad break-ups later you let yourself go and have chocolate, because you know, at least THAT feels good, take a look in the mirror and–oh my God, it’s a gorilla staring back at cha!

    Anyway. I randomly stumbled upon this article and as I was reading it, several things crossed my mind:
    1. Bulgarian whaaat? Why isn’t this guy explaining what it really is? Do I have to Google them again?
    2. Oh God, he’s worse than grandma. This can’t be it, I know spot reduction is nonsense. I gotta keep looking. Lame training website.
    3. I should stop reading this, but darn my stupid habit of having to finish what I started..must finish and never come back.
    4. A joke? Oh thank goodness! Wow this is awesome! Exactly what I’m looking for! Humorous, frank, useful and insanely awesome! Must subscribe.
    And so I did πŸ™‚

    Awesome article. I am desperately trying to come down sizes. I don’t believe in starving or over-stressing myself. Looking for the balance. So far, loved this website.

  10. Damn. This is the funniest bodybuilding article I have ever come across. Laughed way too hard at “Incline eye brow raises”.

  11. I fell for all of them, i was getting into it as well -_- it took me about half an hour doing all of these… my face hurts. the thing is my face isn’t fat i just wanted face stretches n stuff ugh, thanks anyway i better go massage my face oww :C

  12. wow hilarious,
    Thank god i had read the whole article, really found it interesting and humourous… on top of that now i really know how to reduce my F FAT : )

  13. Bro!!! i went to an extend of doing the exercise while reading!!! but when i came across reverse blinking!!! found this guy is hilarious πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ hmmm…any way nice but i couldn’t find a solution to reduce the fat in face πŸ™

  14. I was doing the exercise while reading it and finding it hilarious XD finally laughing it off when it was all a joke. πŸ˜‰ nice one.

  15. This is one of the best style of writing and passing information, of course effectively. If it is not written in this manner, then definitely it would not have reached as it is done with now. I liked the writing and also I do 100% agree with final conclusion of creating calorie deficit to lose the fat. But I just want to add one more thing. The strategy to reduce fat is correct. But, to still need to be fit, we must do selective exercise for the body, face and eye to keep looking fit both internally and externally.

  16. You know, at first I was like,” Yes! No more pinched chubby
    Cheeks from grandma! And sooo long suprise double chin
    in picture taken with friends at awesome parties!” But then you
    suggested, “decline eyebrow
    Raises” and… “Kettlebell fish face swings”…. Thanks for the laugh!! I might just try this
    At the gym just for fun!! Haha πŸ™‚ also, thanks for your
    REAL advice at the end. πŸ˜‰ will definitely be put to use!

  17. Oh. My. God. I actually sat here in my room doing all this crazy stuff and considering that I will have to look ridiculous if I want to lose my face fat … You had me in tears man! This was so funny! But you also disappointed me for some reason… theintroduction was like, really good and I trusted you on this… If I ever have trust issues, you will be the main reason. Hahah, just joking.
    The last sentence is great, priceless laugh! Well thank you very much for letting me realize I shall have to do some real body exercise… Keep going!

  18. Hi. I really liked your article.
    I was in office and was doing these exercises.
    I did not got until reading the whole article that it was really a joke.
    And at the end I burst out laughing loudly.

  19. I knew something’s fishy while I was reading it because you were constantly delaying the exercise till the last very moment. And thankfully, I knew blinking has nothing to do with fat burn. So I would say blinking exercise got you. But I did raise my eyebrows, nevertheless.

  20. Damn you got me there! I actually even tried the eyebrow thing πŸ˜› But your IQ remark was an insult and it offended me. I have a scientifically tested IQ of 155, and that’s pretty high. No Kidding. Anyways, a fine way of putting your point forward – all due credits to you! πŸ™‚

  21. That almost made me believe that this was an awesome workout! Good thing I read through the whole stuff. XD By the way, this “workout” is real fun. Great work, I would like to see you do more of these :DD

  22. Hahahahahaha….. My gosh! Dude ur awesome…. U know what? I have no double chin! I was in bad mood nd just checking the history. My younger sis searches all this stuff. Nd when I read this! I was bursting out loud:-)
    U should write more to aware the people doing all these non-sense…. Very very nice:-) hahahaha

  23. Hi!

    I work out hard everyday (Shaun T’s Insanity cardio)! Also focus on diet to lost weight. I’ve lost 5kgs in 1 month lol. I want to lose another 5kgs in the following month.

    One question:

    Does face excercises can help to lose face fat FASTER when you also do hard workout cardio + diet?

    Or they are totally a crap with or without workout?

    (I know that you have to burn fat in the whole body but there should be something that burns that f*king face fat also. like face cardio or something lol )


  24. HAHAHAH! Okay so all I wanted was for my cheek bones to be more defined! I come on this website and I’m sitting here the whole time like… How the HELL does this help!? This all made my day! I tried blinking seeing if I felt any muscle in my face get soar! I’m an idiot! XD

  25. Funny stuff, but what about those that aren’t looking to lose face fat, but just wanting to strengthen the muscles in their face? I already have a skinny face, I’d rather have a more pronounced jaw. Seems the only ‘facial exercises’ are bogus or just meant to help prevent/deal with wrinkles. I don’t care about the elasticity of the skin yet, I’m looking to build that square jaw. AND THIS WAS NO HELP!!!

  26. Question about post workout diet. I have heard that low fat chocolate milk is a great post workout diet…what do you think?



  27. I just did almost every “facial workout” at my desk and I’m one of the top attorneys in Oklahoma. Cool. My IQ definitely just dropped a few points. Haha!
