Cellulite tends to appear when extra fats form in between the muscle tissue as well as skin. Compared to men, women are more prone to having cellulite because they have higher levels of estrogen. Most of the time, women store the excess fat in their body on their hips and butt areas. The good news is that there are ways for you to banish cellulite from your butt. Here are some tried and tested workouts to include in your fitness routine.
This workout is designed to be executed as a pose which means that you should hold it in a static posture. You should first go on all fours as if you are doing a crab walk. Push your butt upwards so that it is tightened and engaged. See to it that you are pressing down on your heels rather than on your toes. Stay in this pose for a full minute then release. You should repeat this three times. For sure, you’ll feel some tightness on your glutes at this point. Try to hold this pose for two minutes.
Single-leg hip raise
Lie down on the floor face up with your right leg extended and left knee bent. Tighten your core muscles as tight as you can manage. Squeeze your gluteal muscles then raise your hips. Make sure that your right leg remains raised as you hold this pose for 2 seconds. Release this hold and lower yourself back to the ground. Make sure that you move your torso and hips as one. This means that the arch of your lower back should remain the same from start to finish. The goal here is to engage your glutes as much as possible to get rid of cellulite.
Dumbbell lunges and squats
Two of the best exercises that you can use to tighten your glutes to banish cellulite are the lunges and squats. To perform dumbbell lunges, you should stand straight with your feet at hip-width apart and a dumbbell in each hand. Take a big step forward with your left leg then bend both knees to 90 degrees to lower yourself into a lunge. Push down on your left foot to go back to an upright position. Repeat with the other leg to complete one rep. As for the squats, you should stand straight with your feet at hip-width apart and toes pointing outwards slightly. Engage your core as you push your hips backwards. Bend knees to 90 degrees to lower yourself into a squat. Make sure that your knees won’t go beyond your toes. Push yourself back up to complete one rep. You should do 10 to 12 reps.
These are just a few examples of exercises that you can do to banish cellulite in your butt. The best thing about these exercises is that they will not only remove cellulite but they will help tone your muscles too for a more leaned physique.
