Have you ever seen a Victoria’s Secret model with cellulite?
Of course, you haven’t. Those girls do not have any cellulite. One might think they are immune to the problem most women face on a daily basis, but in reality, they bust their ass off to get the perfect body. Victoria’s Secret models work out as much, if not even more than the rest of us mortals.
When it comes to cellulite, the first thing you have to do is be realistic. If you have a job that requires you sitting in front of a computer for 8 to 10 hours, it gets little harder how to get rid of cellulite. But I am not saying it’s impossible. You just to put in more work.
Now, I will share some of my favorite exercises that work your inner and outer thigh. If you stick to them and change your diet, you might get rid of cellulite faster than you imagined. I know some of you would love those anti-cellulite massages, but they are just a quick fix.
Side to Side Lounge
You can add some dumbbells after you master the exercise. The side to side lounge works out your hamstrings, glutes, quadriceps, and adductors. At the beginning, do it without any weight, simply hold your hands on your hips. Once you master it, you can add some dumbbells, and then move the weight on your shoulder for even more pressure.
Now, the starting position is standing with your legs shoulder width apart. Your back is flat and straight. Start by taking a giant step to the left, and while you do that, bend your left knee to the point your thigh and floor are parallel. Make sure to keep your leg extended, and do not allow the knee to jump over your toes. Return to the initial position, and do the same on the right side.
One of the simplest, yet most effective workouts for your gluteal muscles, the all-fours kickback will help you get the leg you always desired. Make sure not to arch your back while doing to. Get down on your knees and forearms, and keep your back straight. Your head and back should be in line, and your eyes should look down. Try not to touch your chest area with your chin.
With your back straight and your leg bent, swing your right leg back, and lift your foot towards the ceiling. You want to aim to a position in which your thigh is parallel with the floor. Keep your foot flexed during the exercise, and after one second, return to the starting position. Do 10 reps with your right leg, then switch to the left. Once you master the exercise, you can put some weight on the knee.
A move that ballerinas invented, plie is actually a great workout exercise for your thighs and will aid you in the goal how to get rid of cellulite. Stand with your feed slightly wider than your shoulders, with toes pointing out. Bring your arms in front of you in a straight line, and lower into a squat. Come back up and repeat the move 10 times. Remember to go as low as you can, but don’t let your knees move past your toes.
Squat and Side Lift
An exercise from the plyometric workbook, you want to add some extra pressure here for better results. You can have ankle weights, but I recommend you forget about them at the beginning.
Start in a standing position, with your legs at shoulder width apart. Slowly bend to a squat position, and then come back up. Keep your back flat at all times. Once you are up, pause for a second, and then lift your left leg off the floor and out to the side. Return to starting position, do a squat, and then lift your right leg. Do 20 reps.
Outer and Inner Kick Stretch
This is my favorite workout for getting rid of cellulite because it is easy, simple, but hard as hell. On first glance, it looks simple. But after a while, you feel all your muscles in the gluteal and thighs region working out. You will need a chair to support you for the exercise.
Start by standing in front of a chair, holding the back of the chair. Lift your right leg to the side, and then with your abs pulled in, bring the right leg across your body to the point it is in front of your left leg. Swing it back to the right, but make sure to keep your toes flexed while doing so. Do 10 reps with the right leg, and then switch legs.
One Legged Lunge
Another exercise where you can add a chair to the equation, the lunge works out your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. Start by doing some regular lunges before you move to the chair.
Now, when you add the chair into the equation, your starting position is two feet in front of the chair with your back to it. Bend your right knee and extend the right leg behind you, and make sure to put your foot on the seat of the chair. At all times, your back must be straight, and your head in line with your spine.
Now, bend your left knee to the point where the knee is parallel with the floor. Avoid letting your knee move past your toes. Pause, go back to starting position and 10 reps with each leg
Exercise is just part of the solution for how to get rid of cellulite. The battle is not as easily won as you’d want to. Luckily, I have some bonus tips for you that will help you end up as a winner, and with a perfect beach body that will draw attention. Let’s go.
- Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated, so your skin cells can look fresh and renewed. Water also improves elasticity of the skin, the key to preventing cellulite
- Eat more fruits and vegetables to keep your weight down, with focus on cruciferous veggies and leafy greens like kale and spinach
- Eat more healthy fats. Fat under the skin is one of the main causes for cellulite, and if you replace your fats with- healthy fats, you are one step closer to getting rid of cellulite. Olives, avocados, fish oil, nuts, all those help
- Get plenty of rest. Few people understand the true value of 8 hours of sleep. Without rest, your body goes into overdrive, and you have higher risk for diseases and weight gain.
