How to Get Rid of Cellulite With Exercise


Cellulite is a common problem that plagues about ninety percent of women. Lumpy and dimpled skin can be both embarrassing and unsightly. A high proportion of fat to muscle causes this condition. A practical way to build muscle and to get rid of cellulite is with exercise.

Things You'll Need

  • Ankle weights
  • Resistance bands
  • Gym equipment
  • Tone the lower body (thighs and hips) by doing special exercises. Target the muscles in your thighs by doing leg lifts and side lying leg lifts (see Resources). Do ten repetitions of the lifts for each leg; increase to three sets of ten repetitions and then add resistance bands.

  • Exercise the arms and the back of the arms by doing bicep curls and overhead extensions with weights (see Resources). You can also use resistance bands to work the arms. Tone a flabby stomach with the abdominal rocker exercise (see Resources).

  • Do lunges and squats to get rid of cellulite on the buttocks. Add one to five pound weights to your ankles for a better workout. Start with ten repetitions and increase to three sets of ten repetitions. You can do other squat exercises such as ball and bench squats (see Resources).

  • Get a home gym machine or join a club and get rid of cellulite with exercise machines. Use the elliptical trainer, treadmill, leg press or weight training machines to work the upper and lower body. Get the proper instructions before using these machines.

  • Practice certain sports like handball, volleyball or squash to eliminate cellulite.

  • Include cardiovascular exercises such as power walking, jogging, swimming or bicycling in your weekly exercise routine. These are all beneficial in getting rid of cellulite.

  • Incorporate some of these exercises from Step 1 to Step 6 to slowly build muscle and lose the fat. You should exercise at least 3 times a week. Start by doing 20 minutes and slowly increase the time length.
