Cellulite is something no one likes. Even though exercise can help, there are other options along with exercise to get rid of stubborn fat.
Below are some tips for getting rid of fat and cellulite.
#1: Improve Your Circulation
This can be done by doing exercises which invoice cardio and strength training and by getting massages. You can also do it by taking showers which change from hot and then go cold.
#2: Improve Your Diet
When you eat a diet that is low in fat and full of vegetables and lean protein, it helps you with losing body fat. Stay away from starches, alcohol, sugars, sugary fruit and processed foods. When you lower your carb intake, this also will help. Foods that are low on the glycemic index also will help with losing weight.
#3: Do Cardio
One of the best ways that you can remove fat and cellulite is through cardio. Interval training is one of the best choices, since it varies your activity’s intensity and helps burn fat.
#4: Do Strength Training
When you firm up the muscle beneath your cellulite, it’s going to help with smoothing out the appearance of your skin. Put your focus on moves which build up your quads, hips, buttocks and hamstrings. You should train your lower body a minimum of two times each week and increase the amount of weight as time passes so that your muscles are challenged. Some of the best exercise choices for your lower body are:
- Step-Ups – You step up on a fitness step or bench and then step down with that same leg. You should try for 20 reps on each side.
- Lunges – Stationary or walking lunges will target all of the muscles in your lower body effectively. Take a big step forward, lowering your body so both knees are forming angles of 90 degrees. You should keep the front knee over your ankle. Go back to your starting position and aim for 30-50 reps each leg.
- Squats – Aim to do 50 reps and keep your weight on your heels and make sure your back’s straight while you’re extending your hips like you’re sitting down on a chair. Try lowering so that the floor and your thighs are parallel. Don’t allow your knees to go past the ends of your toes.
These are the things that you can do to help you with losing weight and cellulite. Keep in mind that it isn’t going to happen overnight. You didn’t gain all the weight overnight, so you won’t lose it overnight either.
