The Best 5 Exercises To Reduce Cellulite

Because cellulite tends to be more noticeable on your butt and legs, your smoothing strategy needs to focus on the lower body hard, using high reps of moderately heavy strength moves. By doing this, you can reduce fat by building the crucial muscle foundation below it and burn calories in general, whilst smoother layers and giving you a toned comfortable look and feel. You can’t spot target, but you can tone!

How it works:

Do two sets of each move for the number of reps indicated.
If you do all your reps but don’t feel burned out, add on another five (per side if needed).
Limit rest to 15 seconds between moves.
You can do this routine three days a week on alternate days.
Grab two sets of dumb- bells, one heavier set (15 or 20 lbs) and one lighter set (8 to 12 lbs).
If you can get your hands on only one set, choose 12 or 15 lbs.
Total Time: Up to 30 minutes
