The arrival of summer uncovers the much hated cellulite, especially in the buttocks and legs area. You already know that, to combat it, a healthy life is necessary, made up of physical exercise and adequate nutrition.
But today I will not talk about what you already know, but I will teach you various exercises that will help prevent sagging and the accumulation of fat in the most prone areas.
The most important thing is to start the body and activate our metabolism . For this I recommend aerobic exercises: walking, running and swimming are the most common, but you can also skate or jump rope. Start with about 20 minutes a day and, as you progress, increase the time until you reach 50-60 minutes. You can also do workouts of changes of rhythm or intensity , although these have less duration.
On the other hand, it is also advisable to perform strength exercises in the area so that the muscle has the desired tone and thus we will increase the demand for calories on your part. You can perform these exercises 3 days a week , but remember that you have to rest and recover so as not to overtrain:
Separate your feet at the height of our shoulders and bend the knees and hips, bringing the body towards the ground but staying vertical. You can maintain your balance by bringing your arms forward. It is very important that your hips move as far back as possible so as not to exceed the balls of your feet with your knees. You can practice trying to sit on a chair and, without supporting yourself, get back up; This will give you more security until you can do it without referrals. You can also perform a variation of this exercise by placing the tips of your feet outwards and increasing the opening of your legs; in this way you increase the work of your adductor muscles. Perform 15-20 reps and 3 sets .
Start from the same position as the squat. Bring your right leg forward, bending the knee (remember to keep it without going beyond the tip of the foot) forming a 90º angle. At the same time, he also flexes the other leg, without touching the ground with the knee and resting the tip of our foot on it. Switch legs alternately and stay in place when performing the exercise, do not move. Perform 15-20 reps, 3 sets.
Lie on your back and bend your knees, leaving your feet flat on the ground. Your hands should be on both sides of your hips. From this position, raise your pelvis toward the ceiling, keeping your torso straight. The weight should be on your scapulae and the soles of your feet. Go up and down without actually touching the ground.Perform 15 reps and 3 sets. You can also change the exercise by keeping the position up for about 40 seconds and resting, repeat 4 times.
Now you have no excuse to show off your bikini without a trace of cellulite!
