How to Tone the Thighs & Buttocks From Cellulite

Save

Cellulite is the lumpy orange peel effect most commonly found on the thighs, stomach and bum. Fatty deposits or fat-coated cells pushing against the skin cause the dimpling effect of cellulite. While cellulite is a common problem for both men and women, scientists have found the tendency to get cellulite is hereditary. You can, however, perform simple exercises to reduce cellulite while toning the thighs and buttocks. For maximum effect, perform these exercises every day.

Squats

  • Stand with your feet approximately shoulder-width apart. Make sure your feet are pointing forward, then clench your stomach muscles.

  • Slowly lower your body so your legs are at a 90 degree angle.

  • Hold squat pose for 30 seconds then return to the original standing position. Perform this exercise for two sets of eight to 10 with rest between them.

    This exercise is quite possibly the best for toning the buttocks and thighs, and for reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Lunges

  • Stand with your feet slightly apart then take a big but comfortable step forward with your right leg. Your knee should not extend beyond your toes to avoid excess pressure on the knees. The back leg, which should still be in the starting position, should still be straight.

  • Step back and return to the original position.

  • Repeat around another eight to 10 times then rest. Perform another set of lunges.

Burpees

  • Stand with your feet together and bend your knees.

  • Jump as high as possible on the spot but instead of landing on the feet with straight legs, land with the legs bent in the squat position with your hands either side of your feet.

  • Kick your feet back so that you are temporarily in the press up position then kick forward so that you are back in the squat position. Repeat around another eight to 10 times then rest. Perform two sets of these exercises.

Tips & Warnings

  • To increase the complexity of the lunges and squats, hold dumbbells in both hands.
  • If you have any health problem please consult your doctor before carrying out these exercises.
