Women are always looking for the perfect cellulite workout that can help in diminishing the orange peel appearance of cellulite. A particular workout that targets problem areas aren’t all that hard. In fact, many women have attested to their efficacy in diminishing cellulite.

 

Fitness Magazine has provided a couple of workouts that can help you reduce cellulite. According to Fitness Magazine, you can start with the strength routine, designed to target your lower body. You’ll need a set of weights, a resistance band, and a stair or step. Do the “A” set first, then without resting do the “B” set. Repeat the whole sequence two more times, for a total of three sets of each exercise.

 

1A: Reverse Lunge

Targets: Glutes, quads

 

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides, holding a medium-weight dumbbell in each hand.
  • Lunge behind you with right foot, bending both knees 90 degrees. Hold for 1 count; return to start and repeat.
  • Do 12 to 15 reps; switch legs.

 

2A: Romanian Deadlift

Targets: Glutes, hamstrings

 

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent, holding a dumbbell in each hand with palms facing body.
  • Slowly bend forward, driving glutes behind you while keeping knees slightly bent.
  • Tighten glutes and stand up.
  • Do 8 to 10 reps.

 

1B: Standing Calf Raise

Targets: Calves

 

  • Stand on a stair or step with heels of both feet hanging over edge.
  • Slowly lift up onto balls of feet. Hold for 1 count, then lower feet until heels are just below step.
  • Do 8 to 10 reps.
  • Challenge: Do the move on one leg at a time.

 

There are other routines available and you can find them at Fitness Magazine.

 

If your problem is your thighs, many have attested that one of the best cellulite workouts that you can do is to walk. Yes, according to the Daily Mail, walking can certainly help in reducing cellulite. Below is an excerpt from the article published in the Daily Mail.

 

Walk off wobbly thighs

 

  • Decide on the routes you are going to walk. You need to map out a selection of 1½, 2, 2½ and 3-mile courses. To quickly work out suitable routes, go to mapmywalk.com. Key in your proposed walk on a map of your local area and the site will ­calculate the distance for you.
  • Alternatively, first drive or walk around your ­proposed route and use your car’s mileometer, or — if you’re on foot — a pedometer to ­measure ­distance. Include hills and inclines in your workout when you can for their extra fitness and toning benefits.
  • Set aside at least 45 minutes (ideally an hour) every day for your Walk Off, but do remember you must include a rest day each week (I recommend Mondays). You can walk to work, pop out at lunchtime for a brisk stroll — whatever suits. Walking on a treadmill counts, too.
  • Always walk in a pair of good-quality walking or running shoes that leave plenty of room for your toes.
  • Walk at the pace that is right for you. If you’re already pretty fit, alternate jogging and walking to boost your routine.
  • Stretch your muscles thoroughly before and after exercising.

 

Quicken your pace.

 

LUMPS AND BUMPS

 

  • 70 per cent of cellulite is caused by lifestyle; 30 per cent is genetic

 

  • Posture is important. Keep your shoulders back and your chin held high — look straight ahead.
  • Walk naturally, but faster than you typically do, allowing your arms to swing.

 

  • This is not a casual amble around the shops, so step up your pace ­several notches. Lengthening your stride will tone your inner and outer thighs more efficiently.

 

  • If your legs become stiff during your walk or you become short of breath, slow down.

 

  • If you become dizzy, stop immediately and regain your equilibrium. If you haven’t exercised in a while, you may struggle at first, but don’t give up.

 

  • Just take things steady until you build up enough strength and ­stamina to up your pace a little.
