Millions of women suffer from unsightly cellulite in their bodies. For those who do not know exactly what they are, cellulites are fatty deposits underneath the skin. Typically found in buttocks, thighs, abdomen and arms, these cellulites haunt women, and sometimes even men, around the world. Truly, having cellulite can be very frustrating because they are unsightly. Anyone who has it will surely want to get rid of it. Unfortunately, it is a bit difficult to dispose of. This article will try to give you suggestions on how to get rid of unwanted cellulite in your body.
A lot of people have the misconception that the cellulite problem plagues only those who are obese but, unfortunately, this affects even those who are skinny. The determining factors are the person’s fat metabolic rate, blood circulation and how healthy you are in general. Doing nothing will definitely give you nothing, while taking the easy route will only be able to help you partially. To get rid of your cellulite, you have to sweat it out. So the more you exercise, the more fat you will burn; the more fat you burn, the less cellulite you will have.
For those who want to get rid of cellulite, the recommended regime is to exercise using light to moderate weights at least three times a week. Best for cellulite loss are lunges, squats and leg curls. Lunges and squats work to eliminate cellulite on your thighs, while the leg curls work the back of your legs. If you go to the gym, you will find various equipment you can use for these exercises. A gym instructor will be able to show you the ropes and the different ways you can exercise each target area to solve your problem.
Aside from lifting weights, you need to have aerobic or cardiovascular exercise. These exercises are known to speed up fat loss in the body. If you want to use machines for this, you can use a treadmill or an elliptical trainer. However, you can also do cardiovascular exercise without the use of machines. You can join aerobic or dance classes, jog around the block, swim at a nearby pool, or simply walk around your neighborhood. It does not matter what method you choose as long as your exercise is able to get your heart rate up to about a hundred fifty beats per minute for at least a third of an hour. You also have to remember that proper warm-up and stretching must be done to prevent injuries.
