If you do this cellulite reducing workout, get ready to transform your life! No matter where those dimples are, cellulite is a tough nut to crack. Most 80% to 90% of women have cellulite. Be it on their thighs, butt, or stomach.
So if you’re eyeing cellulite somewhere on your body, this might help.
Doing cellulite reducing workout a few times a week is essential. You put on your best workout pants to hide cellulite, right? Pants do minimize the appearance of cellulite from the outside. But if you want to get rid of cellulite completely, you have to work from the inside.
This means sweating it out with the help of this highly-effective workout. Are you ready?
Cellulite Reducing Workout
1. Squat Kickback
This is a standing workout. Simple, intense, and effective. Do 20 reps on each side x 3 sets.
Keep your feet close together. You can place both hands on your hips or keep them bent at the elbows.
Take a deep squat, go down as if you’re sitting on a low chair. You can either pulse or count to 3 and come back up. But instead of going into a squat again, do this.
Lift your right leg back off the floor without bending your knees.
Tighten your glutes and go as high as you can. Don’t lean forward as you do.
Position your leg back to the original squat position. Repeat this on the other side.
2. Hip Bridge
Get on your mat and into a lying down position on your back. Do 20 reps x 3 sets.
Bend both knees and press your feet on the mat.
Extend your hands on either side pointing to your toes. The tips of your fingers should be able to find the back of each foot a.k.a the heels.
Now, lift your hips off the floor until your hips are in line with your chest. Tighten your glutes and hold for up to 5 seconds or longer. Don’t curve or lift your lower back higher than your chest.
Lower back down and repeat.
This may sound “beefy” to some of you but it’s actually very simple. It is the best cellulite and fat-burning workout of the century! Do 20 reps x 3 sets.
Hold one dumbbell in each hand. With your feet hip-distance apart, make sure your hands are right in front of you, near your thighs.
Squeeze your abdominal muscles and with a straight spine bend forward and down. A slight bend in the knees is essential. As you do this, lower the dumbbells as if you’re slowing placing them on the floor. But you’re not actually going to do that.
Lower them as much as you can until you feel a squeeze in your hamstrings. Lift your upper body up to starting position and repeat.
4. Plie Squat
You can do this with or without a dumbbell. It’s totally up to your stamina levels. Do 20 reps x 3 sets.
Keep your feet wider than hip-distance. Toes should be turned out slightly towards both corners of the mat. So they’re not pointing forward but away from each other.
Hold a heavy dumbbell in both your hands against the chest. With elbows bent, take a deep squat. Your knees should be pointing in the same direction as your toes. So the knees shouldn’t bend away from each other as you squeeze your glutes to come up.
5. Wall Sit
This is a great exercise to burn fat faster and tone muscles. It’s like a plank but for your thighs, glutes, and leg muscles. For this exercise, you can or cannot use heavy weights. The exercise is more effective when you do.
Stand up straight with your back against a wall. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart. You can get your feet closer for more balance.
Push your torso into the wall as you bend down into a seated position. Or until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Make sure your shoulders are straight and the chest is pointing up and forward.
Stay in this position for 20 seconds, to start with. Rest for 30 seconds in between each rep. And do 2-3 more reps for better body conditioning.
Even though you’re taking this by the horns, you have to be smart about it. And that means taking your fitness goals smoothly and logically.
If you think you’re going to lose all of that cellulite, then you’re wrong. Cellulite almost never goes away. But you can reduce the intensity and tighten your skin and tone your muscles.
Do a few sets of the following exercises for as many days as you can in a week. Take it easy and feel your very best self! Long-lasting results take dedication and time. So be patient.
