What are some good exercises to tone the flank area? It seems no matter what I do, this area is not budging at all. :/ Getting frustrated....

Bad news.... study after study has been done showing that you cannot "Spot lose" fat trouble spots.

People store fat in different places. Some people its the flanks, most men its the belly. That means that will be the first place you will gain, and the last place you will lose.

HOWEVER: Gaining muscle all over will make your body look more even and athletic, rather than just lumpy. So pump out those weighted squats, and get to lifting ;)

Damn.....that's what I was afraid of. LOL
I think I'm going to get a PT to help me with these trouble spots I have.

Side planks help tone that area. While you can't spot lose weight you can work on certain areas to tone them.
