Workouts to help you control cellulite

 

By ROBERT DDAMULIRA

Cellulite is as a result of a particular type of subcutaneous fat getting stuck between the muscle and the fibrous cords that connect the skin to the muscle. It is commonly found on the butt and thighs.
The following workouts can help you reduce cellulite

Squats: Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder distance apart and toes turned out. Bend knees, lowering torso and keeping your back straight and abs tight. These can be done in different sets.

Lunges: Start standing with legs slightly wider than shoulder-distance apart and toes pointed forward, Shift your body weight to one leg, bending the knee until it reaches a 90-degree angle and the other leg is straight.

Strength training: When you build firm muscles underneath your skin, it will fill the space with solid structure and create a smoother surface. Basically, the webbing helps muscle fibres tighten and they will not allow the fat to push through
Roadwork: In addition to working on the entire body, running burns more calories and can help reduce cellulite.

Cross fit: This is a combination of different workouts done concurrently but in different sets. One can do squats, lunges and other workouts within the same workout session.
