Hey guys!! Hope you all had a great weekend!
Before I get to specific exercises that are my go-to for each target area, I want to get over with other small topics such as this one! My tried and tested cellulite busting moves.
Let’s start with basics first!
What is cellulite?
It is dimpled appearance of the skin that some people have on their hips, thighs, and buttocks, more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed.
What causes cellulite?
Family history, inactive lifestyle, unhealthy diet, pregnancy, weight gain, anything!
Coming back to the topic!
I remember when I started to work out, I had cellulite like anyone of us does and I obviously wanted to get rid of it. Even if you loose weight, you can still have cellulite unless you extensively work on that particular aspect. There are of course DIY scrubs to help you get rid of it (the coffee scrub – you’ll find the recipe on Pinterest). I am not the best person to indulge in too many DIYs as that’s one thing I am always lazy about. However, what I am not lazy about is trying to figure out what exercises can help me.
Now before I share them, there are a few things I’d like to mention:
- These worked on me and I have been working out for months now. I did not have a crazy cellulite situation to start with, but whatever I had, almost 85% of it is gone in six months.
- If these will work on you, or not, or will take how much time to work on you, I can’t say that. Like everything else, we all have different reactions and pace for a thing to work out for us. At best I can say is try, be patient and regular with it, and you never know if it works wonders for you as well!
- You have to be really committed. You can not just do a bit of it for a few days in weeks and wonder why it doesn’t work. I try to do at least some of these exercises, if not all, everyday, and that’s what it took me to get the results.
Let’s get to the exercises now:
Lateral Goblet Lunge
Goblet Plie Squat
Single Leg Dead Lift
Lying Inner Leg Lift
You can start with 5 or 10 reps each in a day and gradually move up to doing 3 sets of 15-20 reps each. You can add ankle weights for an added effect only if you’re comfortable.
Other everyday activities that can help: Walking & taking stairs as much as you can, plus more greens in your diet!
Hope this helps 🙂
