We repeatedly see models plastered on magazines with a good looking body with no imperfections. We all want a body like that but as we get older our bodies will start to bulge here and there in places that we do not want it to. These bulges are what we call cellulite and it forms from the toxins and fats we consume over a long period of time. It starts out by invading the connective tissue and then hardening to form the lumps that can be seen. Once people discover they have this hideous looking problem, they will often try to find ways to get rid of cellulite.
One method people first use to dispose of nasty cellulite is with lotions and potions. This method does NOT work at all except to drain your pocket book of money on a useless product. There is no quick treatment for cellulite and the only way to successfully remove these ugly looking fat pockets is with cellulite exercise.
Cellulite exercise uses weights to target the fat within your problem areas. These work outs will help you increase your circulation which helps carry the fat and toxins from your system. It also helps firm up your muscles in the problem areas, which smooths out the unsightly bumps and dimples. You will be able to notice the effects by observing your skin tightening and watching the bumps disappear.
One great method that you need to apply, before you begin your exercise routine, is to massage your problem areas. This boosts your blood circulation which is needed to aid your body in expelling the bad toxins from your system. This is also the best fat removal vehicle that your body can provide. The best and easiest way to do this is by using a body brush while you are taking a shower or bath.
One exercise that you need to try is to do some leg lifts while down on your hands and knees. You need to start off by getting down on the floor on your hands and knees and then to lift one leg up until it is parallel with your back. Hold this position for five seconds and then place your leg back down on the ground. You should try to accomplish 3 full sets that consist of 15 repetitions for each leg.
Another fantastic exercise which will help you is to do leg lifts while lying down on the floor. To accomplish this exercise you will need to lie down on your stomach with your arms bent and tucked under your head. Then with your hips consistently touching the floor, lift your leg up backwards and hold it in that position. Next you will need to bend your foot three or four times and place it back on the ground. You should try to complete 3 sets of 15 reps for each leg.
A further exercise that will help you is to tighten your muscles while sitting on a stable chair. Once seated in a chair, place a pillow between your legs. Then you will need to try and squeeze the pillow as hard as you can by tightening your buttock and upper leg muscles, holding that position for one minute. You should try to complete 3 sets of 5 reps.
Many older adults, when they find out that they now have cellulite, always try to cover it up because it is so ugly and embarrassing. They will often try to find a quick cure that will rid them of this bulging fat in the form of potions and lotions but these are ineffective and do not work. The only way you can successfully get rid of cellulite is to increase your circulation to carry out some of the toxins and to do some exercises that will flatten out your skin. Curing cellulite and getting back to the body you love is as simple as spending a few minutes each day working on the problem areas.
