EXERCISES TO GET RID OF CELLULITE

You may not be able to completely rid yourself of cellulite, but there are things you can do to reduce it. It is good to know that strength training is the cheapest cellulite treatment out there. So, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to get rid of cellulite.

BARBELL HIP THRUSTS

This exercise is an advanced version of a regular hip bridge. To do this exercise, you need a workout bench and a barbell with some weights on it. Lie with your shoulders resting on the bench and your hips lowered with a barbell resting on your hips. Then, keeping your hands on the barbell, raise and lower your hips.

When you eat foods that are high in fat and sugar, you run the risk of having cellulite because fat and sugar keep depositing toxins in the body.  But eating unhealthy foods is not the only reason of having cellulite. Some other factors, including hormones, play important roles in cellulite development.

If you have cellulite on the bum, or any other parts of the body, you should get treatment as soon as possible because untreated cellulite only gets worse as you age. Read on to know how to get rid of embarrassing cellulite on bum.

DEADLIFTS

The first step in reducing the appearance of cellulite is weight loss, because cellulite is caused by accumulation of fat deposits. You will be able to lose weight if you do cardiovascular workouts. Remember, you can reduce the appearance of cellulite by exercising regularly, but it will not completely disappear by mere exercise.

Running, cycling and swimming are excellent aerobic exercises. These exercises will help you burn calories and increase your metabolism. These types of workouts allow muscle cells to break down glucose for energy, because you utilize large muscles.

Squats are another form of exercise which helps you fight cellulite. These workouts target the lower body, primarily the quadriceps, buttocks and abdominal muscles and will enable you to build lean muscle.

Recent studies have sown that it is actually the muscle that gives fat its shape, and fat is the major determinant to the appearance of cellulite. Exercise helps fat spread in all directions and thus prevents cellulite to appear.

SQUATS

Squats do not require any special equipment and you can just use your own body weight to perform them. Stand up straight and bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Then keep your back straight and push your glutes backwards as though you were going to sit on a chair. Slowly come back to a standing position using your leg muscles. It is adequate to perform 3 sets of 10-15 squats 3 times a week.

JUMP SQUATS

To perform jump squats, you do not need any equipment. When it comes to reducing cellulite, jump squats offer some extra benefits over traditional squats. Here is how you can do jump squats:

At first, stand your feet shoulder-width apart. Start by doing regular squat, and then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position. Land as quietly as possible. It requires control. For good results, do 2-3 sets of 10 reps.

CABLE DEADLIFT

Cable Deadlift has a host of benefits, including cellulite reduction. If this exercise is done in the right way, it can offer amazing results. Here are the instructions for this exercise.

Move the cables to the bottom of the towers and select an appropriate weight. Stand directly in between the uprights. Squat down; keep your hips and knees flexible until you can reach the handles. After you have grasped them, begin your ascent. Driving through your heels, extend your hips and knees keeping your hands hanging at your side. Keep your head and chest up throughout the movement. When you have reached a full standing position, return to the starting position and repeat.

BULGARIAN LUNGE

Bulgarian lunge is a unilateral lower body movement that can be done by stepping the foot forward, walking, or even dropping one foot backwards. Most variations of this exercise can be manipulated to a degree to shift emphasis to the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and hips. Lunge is very effective in reducing cellulite. This exercise also develops balance, improves dynamic movement and stabilization and increases unilateral muscle mass development.

LEG CURL ON BALL

This is a great exercise for reducing cellulite. Most people do not have access to a leg curl machine unless they train at a gym. In this case, an inexpensive piece of fitness equipment can be a Swiss ball which can be used for many other exercises.

Lie on your back with your feet and lower legs on top of the ball. Place your arms extended along your sides to create a base of support.

Then raise your hips up off the floor so that your body is in a straight line. Try your best to maintain a natural spine. When your body is in a straight line, use the strength of your hamstrings to pull the ball toward your hips until your feet are flat on the ball. Then, straighten your legs back to the starting position and repeat.
