Sports Illustrated Cover Girl, plus size model, Ashley Graham, once said, “I look at myself naked in the mirror and say, ‘You know what, awkward butt shape? You’re not gonna get higher or rounder but it’s OK, because I’ve got Spanx for you’”. That would be a great way to instantly solve cellulites on your behind if they were gonna be kept inside but, not if you intend to show them off in a bikini!
What About Your Behind?
Listed below are 10 exercises that you can do starting today to ease those bacon bottoms into recovery and keep that excessive cellulite off from then on-wards:
You can do the cardio group stationary biking exercises for full impact on your behind and legs or, you can go rugged outdoors just to keep it interesting if you get easily bored by the gym’s four walls. Done right, biking can really prop up those sluggish muscles on your back and thighs.
Since excess fats never go local, you do need a full body workout to get those excesses flushed out of your system, including the ones that found your fat deposits — and, butt deposits. Swimming pumps up your body and involves all the major muscle groups you have from the head down to your toes. Working your laps and speed with it, we guarantee you will not just have a better toned A*S*S but a better toned body.
3. Skipping rope
What do you do when you got a limited time and your tiny living room to put pressure on your bottoms? You pick up a skipping rope and you learn to train on it like Mohammad Ali or, any disciplined boxer. If you can’t find a rope, do your jumping jacks. Don’t forget to bend your knees slightly and protrude your behind a little every once in a while, as if you were skipping in a squat position.
Pick up a pair of dumbbells or kettle ball as you walk from wall to wall bending one leg forward and another back with every step. Don’t let your knees touch the floor. It’s that hold that puts pressure on your legs which gives tension to your butt, thigh and leg muscles. So, go low and hold. Do it slowly and don’t rush your steps for better pressure.
5. Side leg raises
You’d think this was easy until you get down on the floor and do it. Lie sideways to your right on a mat, with your right arm and elbow perpendicular to the floor and bent above you to support your head. Rest your left arm on your left thigh or, bring it to your front for better balance. With legs and knees straight, bring up your left leg slowly. Hold. Bring it down without letting it touch your right leg. Bring it up again. Repeat in 3 sets of 15 reps each, alternating with the other leg. When your muscles get used to the routine in the coming days, add ankle weights for handicap. Remember that it’s that slow movement that’s going to melt away your cellulite so don’t rush it.
6. Glute raises
Go down on all fours, elbows and knees against the floor. Bring your right leg up, toes reaching upwards towards the ceiling. Hold. Bring it down again without letting your knees touch the floor. Repeat in 3 sets of 15 reps each, alternating with the other leg.
If you don’t like going to the gym or, aren’t really into vigorous and effortful workouts, perhaps a yoga will suit you better. There are yoga poses that will bring muscle tension to your legs. You only need to Google up those and imitate.
Okay, Woman, let’s be clear about this right here. You can go ahead and lament over those pesky, dimpled ass of yours, blame the cake you had last week or, the entire weekend you spent watching Netflix lying on your couch with a bag of Doritos lying beside you, and still have that cellulites stuck on your behind even after you turned green, crying. Or, you can choose to do something about it right now before it’s too late.
