Every woman dreams of having beautiful legs without the “orange peel” on the hips. Cosmetology offers various methods of fighting cellulite, but none of them will help you if you ignore the rules of healthy eating and exercise. Physical activity is the main enemy of hip fat.
The causes of cellulite.
Before you start exercising, you should find out what causes cellulite on your thighs. It can be:
- disruption of the hormonal system;
- unhealthy diet, harmful foods in the diet (fatty meat, semi-finished products, smoked meats, sweets, carbonated drinks);
- insufficient amount of clean water throughout the day;
- unhealthy habits (alcohol, smoking);
- excessive consumption of coffee;
- violation of posture;
- lack of regular physical activity;
- high-heeled shoes;
- the constant wearing of tight clothing.
Cellulite is not a sentence, and you can get rid of it with the right lifestyle, which includes proper nutrition, regular physical activity, and no bad habits. In addition to these basic methods, you can use additional products that will speed up the process of getting rid of cellulite. You can use special anti-cellulite creams, massage, and hardware beauty treatments. They increase blood circulation in problem areas and enhance the effect of exercise.
Physical activity and special exercises can smooth out the “orange peel” even in the most advanced cases. But sometimes women wait too long for a positive result and therefore are disappointed in this method. If you exercise regularly, eat right, but the result is invisible, do not be discouraged and continue on your way. Very often, cellulite does not want to go away for a long time but eventually gives way and starts to dissolve. Exercise has a cumulative effect, so be patient, and you can beat cellulite.
Performing anti-cellulite exercises require following several rules:
- correct breathing technique;
- use strength exercises with light weights or your weight;
- increase the load gradually;
- use a stretching;
- give the rest to your muscles.
To get rid of cellulite, you need to include exercises such as:
- different types of squats;
- gluteal bridge;
- running with high knees;
- jumping rope;
Regular training is the key to success, but you shouldn’t train every day using strength training. You can use strength workouts no more than 3-4 times a week and one or two times aerobic exercise. Alternate between different types of workouts and rest at least two times a week.
In addition to exercising regularly, you need to be physically active throughout the day. Therefore, move as much as possible and give your muscles a load.
You can use fitness bands and dumbbells to increase the load on your muscles and improve the effectiveness of your exercise.
Cellulite is a difficult problem, but you can find the right solution. The main rule in the fight against cellulite is patience. Don’t expect quick results. They will appear at least in a month. If you want your thighs and glutes to have a beautiful shape and firm skin, use healthy methods, and do not be tempted to use methods that give quick but short-term results.
Your diet should include enough of the right fats and proteins. So eat avocados, olive and sesame oil, chicken or turkey meats, dairy products, cheeses, and so on. Remember to eat plenty of vegetables and drink clean water.
