The Best Anti-Cellulite Workout
By Elise Minton Tabin |
The thighs, butt, stomach and upper arms are the areas that attract cellulite and women are on a constant quest to find a permanent solution to eliminate it. Count poor circulation, connective tissue and fibrous bands that push against fat among the causes for this bulging look but there has been progress in terms of treating cellulite now that doctors have a better understanding of what it is, how it’s caused and ways to limit it.
The Best Workout for Fighting Cellulite
New York celebrity trainer Rob Sulaver of Bandana Training says a workout routine that incorporates heavy lifting and other high-intensity exercises will increase muscle tone and fight cellulite. Some of his favorite moves include glute bridges and Bulgarian split squats.
Good Muscle Tone Matters
Working out on a regular basis helps improve muscle tone, which has a direct impact on cellulite-ridden areas. Muscles that are weak and have poorly developed muscle fibers can impact how skin lays. “Tough workouts that challenge your limits will also help prevent cellulite,” says Sulaver. The stronger and more toned your muscles are, the better your body is at burning off excess fat. Besides acting as a fat burner, good muscle tone promotes healthy circulation, which may help limit the look of cellulite.
