Cellulite is a bugbear for every woman. No matter how skinny or toned we are, it seems to pop up in the most horrible of places. Our thighs and butt are the most common places for cellulite to form.
Practice these four simple exercises and stay in great shape:
1. Side to Side
Muscles worked: abductors, hamstrings, Quadriceps and glutes
Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart with your toes pointed out about 45 degrees and your back flat and straight. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and rest them at your hips.
2. All-Fours Kickback
Get on all fours so that your hands are shoulder width apart and your knees are straight below your hips. Bracing your abdomen and keeping your knee bent lift one leg up behind you until it is in line with your body and your foot is parallel to the ceiling. Do 15 repetitions. On the last repetition, keep your leg lifted so it’s parallel to the floor. Pulse your leg up and down 15 times.
3. Lying Inner-Leg Lift
This workout exercise is great for the inner thigh. To strengthen the groin muscles the person lies on their side with the leg to be worked on the bottom. The top leg is bent out of the way as shown. The person lifts the bottom leg as high as is comfortable, keeping the knee straight.
4. Squat and Side Lift
Muscles worked: Glutes, hip flexors, hamstrings, quadriceps and abductors
Slowly bend at the knees and squat back as though moving your butt down toward an imaginary chair. Keep your back flat, and don’t allow your knees to jut over your toes. Stop when your thighs are just about parallel to the floor; don’t go any lower.
Pause, then straighten your legs, lifting your left leg off the floor and out to the side as you stand. Pause again, then return to the starting position. Repeat, lifting your right leg to the side this time. Alternate legs throughout the exercise.
