You already tried the creams and body wraps and nothing seems to work. Your cellulite will not go away.
So you finally come to grips with the fact that you are going to have to do a significant amount of cellulite exercises in addition to optimizing your diet.
After going through all of those expensive treatments and bizarre supplements you realize that the best way to get rid of your cellulite is by reducing your levels of body fat.
Because the bottom line is that cellulite is made up of fat cells and the only way to get rid of it is by doing a lot of effective cellulite exercises while making sure that you are tweaking your diet.
So let me show you exactly what exercises are going to help you reduce your dimply cottage-cheese-like cellulite permanently.
Lower Body Toning or Total Body Toning?
Here is the good news: you do not have to spend all day in the gym every single day of the week.
Here is the bad news: simply doing a bunch of exercises for your legs is not going to get rid of your cellulite.
In order to get the best results here you have to focus on a combination of total body exercises and specialized exercises for your lower body.
The total body exercises will force you to burn a large amount of calories and by extension, burn off a massive amount of cellulite fat.
While the specialized exercises for your lower body will allow you to directly target the big and small muscles effectively.
And if you can target all the different muscles in your lower body you will be able to smooth out your thighs and glutes a lot faster.
Keep in mind that the fastest way to smooth out your lower body is by burning a large amount of cellulite fat while simultaneously toning up all the underlying muscle.

Now keep in mind that your lower body exercises for cellulite are divided into stabilizing exercises and movement exercises.
The difference here is that stabilizing exercises are going to target the smaller and more hard-to-reach muscles.
While the movement exercises are going to target the bigger and more powerful muscles in your lower body.
Again, you want to focus on targeting as much muscle mass as possible to accelerate smoothing.
And the only way to do this is by focusing on smaller muscles with stabilizing exercises and larger muscles with movement exercises.
What about All That Extra Muscle You Are Going to Gain?
Two things to keep in mind here:
- You do not have enough testosterone to gain a massive amount of manly muscle
- You are going to be in a caloric deficit which will further reduce the amount of muscle mass you gain
Remember that you will have to focus on the total amount of calories you are eating if you want to maximize your results.
In fact, it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to completely eliminate your cellulite if you cannot maintain a caloric deficit.
So please do not fear weightlifting because you think it is going to make you really big and bulky.
The great paradox here is that lifting weights will actually make you smaller because you are going to burn so many calories.
Do not forget that a pound of fat occupies more volume than a pound of muscle. But you need to at the very least maintain your muscle mass in order to get rid of all of your bulky fat.
The Frequency of Your Cellulite Workouts
Because resistance training burns so many calories and targets so many different systems within your body, you only have to do it a couple times per week.
If you are a beginner I strongly recommend doing these exercises twice per week.
Now once you become accustomed to the routine start doing these exercises three times per week.
Just remember to pay close attention to your body and if you cannot recover from your workouts and add in an extra day of rest in between.
The last thing you want is to implement an exercise routine that is going to drastically reduce the quality of your life.
Because once your quality of life goes out the window you are going to abandon your program.
Maximizing the Effect from Your Cellulite Exercises
Now there are a million and one different ways to do all of these exercises. The key here is to pick a strategy that is going to maximize the intensity of your workouts.
Because the only way to burn the largest amount of calories – and cellulite fat – is by making sure that you are pushing the envelope.
Now one of the most effective exercise enhancing techniques includes circuit training. So try to mix and match the total body exercises with the lower body exercises in such a way that you cycle through all your different muscle groups.
By effectively cycling through all your different muscle groups you will be able to burn a much larger amount of calories.
And as an added bonus, you will also secrete more testosterone and growth hormone – both of these burn additional amounts of cellulite fat.
Even better, remember that one of the primary causes of cellulite is damaged collagen. And the best hormone to repair collagen is growth hormone.
Exercise Enhancing Strategies
Here are some additional techniques you can implement once you feel like your body is beginning to adapt:
Rest period reduction: the simple act of reducing the amount of rest you get in between your exercises will crank up the concentration of lactic acid in your body while increasing your oxygen debt. And both of these will maximize the amount of calories and cellulite fat you can burn.
Drop set circuits: a normal circuit involves doing one exercise after another without any rest in between. A drop set circuit involves doing multiple sets for each individual exercise within the circuit. And each successive set per exercise is done with a lighter weight which allows you to increase the total volume of your workout.
Glycogen saturation: glycogen is the primary substrate your muscles use in order to generate work. And the best way to maximize your levels of glycogen is by having dextrose and whey protein immediately after your workout. Just remember that you are only allowed to have dextrose and whey protein after intense training because they are fast digesting nutrients. If you take them during any other time of the day they are more likely to be stored as body fat.
Adrenal gland stimulation: your adrenal glands produce hormones called catecholamines. And these hormones are responsible for cranking up your levels of energy while increasing the amount of force and strength your muscles can produce. So if you want to increase the amount of catecholamines you secrete right before your workout I strongly recommend supplementing with about 75 to 100 milligrams of pure caffeine forty-five minutes beforehand.
Parting Thoughts on How to Manage Your Cellulite-Reducing Exercises
There are a lot of different programs and a lot of different exercise routines on the information highways.
But if you get caught up trying to implement every single exercise you come across you will never get rid of your cellulite quickly.
Just start doing these exercises and course correct along the way if you run into any stumbling blocks.
Remember that the only way to get rid of your cellulite is by taking immediate action!
