Losing Stubborn Cellulites
Cellulites are stubborn. Once you have it, it's going to be hard to get rid of it. It's unflattering and unsightly, especially if they're really that obvious.
Let's start off with some facts about cellulite. Cellulite isn't the build-up of excess fat. It is actually caused by unevenly toned and unused muscle.
Exercise and dieting can help you shrink cellulite, but it'll take a while before you can see the effects. This is most true for people who perform generic exercises in an attempt to reduce cellulite.
However, if you perform cellulite-busting exercises or regimens that are meant to tone cellulite prone areas like the underarms, thighs, and buttocks, then you can expect to get visible results.
Heel pushes can tone the calves as well as the front and back side of your thighs. The butterfly position will help stretch and tone your inner and outer thighs too.
It's all a matter of finding the correct toning exercise that will focus on your problem area. To be safe, ask a licensed physical therapist or fitness instructor for the right exercise for your goal.
