Cellulite? Uhmmmm yeah, almost every woman suffers from it. and if you don’t? well you are extremely lucky!
I suffer from it more now than I did when I was over 400 lbs. well actually its only more noticeable because my legs are smaller? Cellulite does not ever completely go away naturally. Regardless for what creams, gels, wraps, etc. that people talk you into. If you don’t believe me, speak to a doctor. People will try to sell you dreams and give false hope off of edited pictures.
The only way to decrease the appearance of cellulite is by working out and eating healthy, and remaining constantly hydrated.
There are really some good workouts to help you. My cellulite is still visible, but it has decreased a whole lot to where its not that noticeable.
Here are a few leg workouts that have helped me:
Squats using the exercise ball
(this is where you put a stability or exercise ball b/w your legs, keeping your knees behind your toes, and all your weight In your heels…and SQUAT…but squeeze your knees inward. You need to put as much pressure on the ball as you possibly can when you are squatting up and down)
(you lay on your back with arms at sides, and tuck your feet under you knees. use your heels to push and thrust your hips upward in the air, but you need to keep the upper part of your back on the flood or mat. Repeat it atleast 20 times, for 5 sets)
(on all fours, feet on tippy toes use one leg and keep bringing knee to chest, as if you are climbing up a mountain)
Resistance band side leg raises
(put resistance band around calf. Lift your right leg up and out towards the right wall. Keep your leg straight and just hold it for 15 seconds. Work your way up to 30 seconds)
All squats, floor leg exercises like leg lifts, leg kick backs, etc.
All of these exercises help to tighten your thighs, booty, and even saddlebags!
Also remember, weights are key. Do not be afraid to walk into that weight room! Lifting weights is so important when trying to lose weight.
