So many women of all shapes and sizes are bothered by cellulite.Thankfully there are a range of effective treatments and exercises that can help eliminate those unwanted lumps and bumps.
Let’s take a look at a few cellulite blasting exercises you can try at home…
A few simple changes in your diet and exercise routine can make all the difference when battling cellulite. Increase water intake, eat healthy, unprocessed foods and try these easy toning exercises.
Walking – We all know that 30 minutes walking every day is great for weight loss and general wellbeing, but it’s also great for tightening legs, thighs and buttocks and getting rid of cellulite. Try to walk a route with some challenges, like steep inclines and steps, and make your strides as long as possible. Keep a fast pace going and finish with lots of stretches. Stretches not only help to warm down the body after exercise and prevent strains or injuries, they also help the body continue to burn fat.
Lunges – Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hands on hips. Take a large step forward with one foot and drop the knee of the other leg down to the floor. Hold the position then push up and repeat with the other leg. Do at least 10 lunges for each leg. This is a great exercise for stretching and toning legs, bum and hips.
Thigh raise – Lie on your stomach with your head resting on crossed arms. Lift your legs from just above your knees until your feet are a few inches off the ground. Hold the position for as long as you can then slowly lower your legs. Repeat several times. You can also try resting on elbows and knees then slowly raising a leg to about 45 degrees with your heel facing towards the ceiling. Hold that position then slowly lower your leg and repeat several times. Then do the same with the other leg. These types of intensive stretches are typical of pilates exercises. Pilates is great for stretching and toning muscle and eliminating excess fat so join a regular class in your neighbourhood if you can.
