Wouldn’t it be nice if there was no such thing as cellulite?
In a perfect world we would all have flawless skin, from face to ass. It would be supple and soft, luminescent and even. Alas, this isn’t a perfect world and we have to battle bad habits, genetics and lord knows what else to keep cellulite from taking up permanent residence on our behind.
One of the best ways to give cellulite a run for its money is by exercising. You see, cellulite forms when lots of fatty tissue pushes against the epidermis of your skin. So what better way to tackle it than by targeting the fat its rubbing up against?
To kick that cottage cheese effect to the curb here are 3 effective exercises for fighting cellulite.
3 Exercises for Fighting Cellulite
Your butt and thighs are usually the number one spot for cellulite. Why? Because it’s easy to gain extra fat in these areas. So ladies, it’s time to get your lunge on.
Placing your hands on your hips, step forward with your right foot and lunge into the position slowly. Make sure your knee is in line with your toes and your thigh is parallel to the floor. Step your left foot forward and resume your beginning position. Next, step forward with your left foot and repeat.
Add 3 sets of 10 lunges per leg to your day, at least 4-5 times per week. It shouldn’t take longer than 5-10 minutes, so no complaining!
Get ready to drop it like it’s hot because we’re going ass to grass with 3 sets of 10 deep squats now.
Standing slightly wider than hips shoulder-width apart, keeping your chest up and back straight, sink into your heels and sit back. You want your butt to go below parallel of your knee. If this is difficult at first or you have hip/knee issues, don’t go as low at first. Listen to your body!
Not only will squats smooth your skin but it will give you buns and thighs to die for!
No one likes burpees. NO ONE. But, they do happen to be amazing at killing fat because they are a full body exercise that not only challenges your muscles, but raises your heart rate, improving blood flow. And we all know that improved blood flow can help our skin!
To complete a burpee, squat down until you can place your hands on the ground, shoulder width a part. Jump your legs behind you until you are in the plank or push up position. Complete a push up and then jump your feet towards your hands. Jump up so you are standing straight and repeat.
Sounds fun, right? NOT!
Do 2 sets of 10 each day and watch that fat melt off!
