Cellulite: those dips and bumps under the
skin that can show up on anyone no matter what their weight. Well, if yours is really ruining your confidence,
then here are some exercises you can do to fade the look of cellulite in no time! So grab your yoga pants, and let’s get started! Butterfly Leg Raises
Lie on your back with your arms by your sides. Bend your knees out to the sides, and put
the soles of your feet together. Don’t forget to engage your abs and leg muscles. Now raise your legs toward the ceiling, keeping
your arms on the ground. Hold this position for a couple of seconds,
relax your muscles, and lower back down. Keep your eyes on the timer, and let’s do
10 reps. Ready? Go! […This exercise gives a nice workout to
your abs as well as your inner thighs, hips, and butt – some favorite places cellulite
likes to show up!…] Knees-to-Chest Hugs
Lie on your back with your legs straight and your arms by your sides. From this position, raise both legs and bend
your knees toward your chest. Hug your legs by wrapping your arms around
your knees and gently pulling them toward your chest. Hold it for a couple of seconds and go back
to the starting position. All clear? Then let’s do 10 of these as well. And go! […This exercise stretches the muscles in
your butt, stabilizes your pelvis, and blasts cellulite away….] Single-Leg Bridges
Lie on your back with your knees bent and hip-width apart. Your feet should be flat on the floor and
your arms down by your sides. Now raise your right leg and extend it in
front of you. Keeping your leg straight, raise your hips
and buttocks up off the ground. Hold this bridge for a couple of seconds,
and slowly lower yourself back down. 8 lifts on each leg will be enough, starting
now! […Really push those hips toward the ceiling!…] Good, now your left leg: […Strengthening
the muscles of your glutes and thighs like this will tone up your body and sculpt your
buttocks…] Wall Sits
Stand with your back against a wall and your feet shoulder-width apart about a foot away
from the wall. While keeping your back against the wall,
slowly lower yourself by bending your knees at a 90-degree angle. In the end, it should look like you’re sitting
in an invisible chair pushed up against the wall. Think you can “sit” for the next 30 seconds? Then let’s start that timer! […It might not feel like this exercise works
any muscles in your body, but give it some time, and you’ll quickly start feeling the
burn, particularly in your thighs! Wall sitting also helps sculpt the butt and,
of course, reduce the appearance of cellulite in these areas. When you’re doing this exercise in the future,
try to do 10 sets of 30 seconds for the best results!…] Side Lunges
Stand with your legs slightly wider than your shoulders and your toes pointed forward. Now take a large step to the right, slowly
shift your body weight to your right leg by bending your right knee at a 90-degree angle. Stand back up into the initial position. Let’s start with 8 reps on your right leg:
[…Halfway there…] And now the left leg: […Side lunges target
your quads, glutes, and inner and outer thighs. Doing them regularly improves the blood circulation
there and thus fades cellulite…] Downward Dog Split
Get on all fours so that your wrists are under your shoulders and your knees are under your
hips. Then, tuck your toes under, press your hands
into the floor, and straighten your legs to come up into the downward dog yoga pose. Now inhale and extend your right leg. It should be in line with your upper body. Exhale and go back to downward dog. This is gonna be a challenge, so let’s do
5 on each leg for now, starting with the right one: […Get that leg up!…] Now the left leg: […Downward dog split is
perfect for opening your hips and stretching the muscles of your thighs, legs, and abs….] How you feeling, by the way? Don’t give up on me now, you’re doing
great! Single-Leg Circles
Lie flat on the ground with your legs straight and your arms at your sides. From this position, raise your right leg to
the ceiling and slowly start to make circles with it. Your leg should be completely straight. When you’re done, lower your leg back down. Let’s do 8 circles for each leg, starting
with the right one: […Keep that left leg straight down on the floor!…] And now let’s get that left leg up: […Single-leg
circles make your quads and hamstrings stronger and help reduce any signs of cellulite on
your buttocks in no time at all!…] Clamshell Exercise
Lie on your left side with your knees bent at a 45-degree angle. Your legs should be stacked, and your head
should be resting in your left hand. From there, raise your right knee as high
as you can while keeping your feet together. Use your right arm to stabilize your body. Hold this pose for a couple of seconds and
go back to the initial position. So, starting on the left side, let’s do
8 reps: […Don’t shift those hips!…] Now the right side, lift that left knee 8
times: […You feeling the burn in those glutes and outer thighs? That’s what we’re going for here! …] Donkey Kicks
For this exercise, you’ll start on all fours. Your knees should be in line with your hips,
and the same goes for your shoulders and wrists. Now, lift up your right leg, keeping your
knee bent, until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Hold it right there for a couple of seconds
and lower your leg back down. 8 reps on that right leg, starting now: […Squeeze
those buttocks to lift that leg as high as you can!…] And switch legs: […Donkey kicks target the
area where your glutes and hamstrings meet, a favorite spot where cellulite likes to hang
out. But not anymore!…] Plie Squats
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips and your toes pointed out at 45 degrees. Now bend your knees and lower your body until
your thighs are parallel to the floor. Stay in this position for a couple seconds,
squeeze your glutes a little bit, and return to the initial position. How about 10 reps for this one? Great, then let’s go! […Plie squats are considered one of the
most effective exercises for removing cellulite. And the secret is simple: they work the glutes,
hamstrings, quads, and inner thighs all at once!…] Keep up that energy, you’re almost done! Just one more exercise left… Forward Lunges
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, your elbows bent at your sides, and your fists
clenched. Take a big step forward with your right leg,
all the while moving your left arm forward and your right arm back. Bend your knees and slightly lower your body
until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Make sure that both your knees make 90-degree
angles. Hold this pose for a second, and return to
the initial position. Do the same with a big step forward on your
left leg. Let’s finish today’s workout with 16 reps,
changing legs on each count. Ready? And go! […Forward lunges strengthen all your leg
muscles, from your calves all the way up to your buttocks. So, it’s kinda like a full-body cellulite-busting
exercise! Just make sure the knee of the leg you lower
doesn’t touch the floor!…] And that’s it for today! If you wanna see results even quicker, do
each of these exercises 15-20 times. Another important part of cellulite-free legs
and buttocks is water. It keeps your body hydrated, flushes out toxins,
and combats fat accumulation. Experts usually recommend drinking about 8
glasses of water every day, but a lot of that will depend on your activity level. Speaking of which, cellulite’s biggest enemy
is an active lifestyle. Run every morning, take walks in a nearby
park, take the stairs, or ride a bike – whatever it might be, just get up and moving! If you have any anti-cellulite secrets of
