What if you could reduce your cellulite in just 30 minutes per day? Would you be willing to do it? What if it involved exercise?
Would a simple 30-minute workout be worth the effort? These simple steps can help you to reduce your cellulite in just 30 minutes per day.
You don’t have to have a gymnasium at your disposal and you don’t have to have any special equipment.
In just 30 minutes you’ll do some exercises and be done with it for the rest of the day. Your cellulite will begin to be less noticeable and you’re going to regain your self-confidence.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money at the gym, you don’t have to buy any expensive creams and you don’t have to worry about it costing a fortune. Let’s take a look at what exercises you will need to do during your 30-minute routine.
The first thing you’re going to do is some basic stretches. You’ll do these as soon as you wake up. Instead of climbing out of bed take a moment and relax. Start with your toes and curl them under. Release this gently and rotate each of your ankles.
Bend the knees and wiggle the hips a bit, now move on up to the arms and shoulders. Gently rotate the shoulders and arms and then slowly sit up.
Rotate the neck a few times and stretch with the arms up over the top of your head. Now you’ve got your morning stretch in and you’re ready for some basic cellulite reducing exercises.
Side To Back
Stand with your legs about shoulder width apart. Place your hands on your hips and move your left foot back and slowly bend your right knee until you feel your muscle begin to tighten.
Hold this pose for a moment and return to your starting position. Repeat this move with your right leg. Do this for 3 repetitions (reps) of 10 each of this and then move on to the next exercise.
This is very similar to our side to back exercise. You’ll start in the same starting position. Step forward with your right foot until you begin to feel your muscle tighten. Return to your original starting position and repeat with your left leg. Do this for 3 sets of 15 lunges on each leg.
No cellulite busting routine would be complete without squats. So, assume the position. Stand with your legs together in front of you and squat just as if you were about to take a seat on a dining table chair.
Go down as low as you can without injuring yourself but do not sit on the floor. Hold this position for the count of six and slowly return to your upright position. Repeat this for 3 sets of 20 squats.
Let’s Go Stepping
Okay friends, go grab that old toddler step you have, create your own or get an aerobic step. You’ll want it to be about 1 to 2 feet up off of the ground. Found it yet? Good, let’s get started. This one is so easy you’ll wonder why it works.
Step up onto the step and then bring your other foot up to meet the first foot. Now simply step back down and repeat this entire process. Do this for 3 sets of 30 steps each.
Okay, we know this one doesn’t look very appropriate, but it really does work, trust us. Grab and exercise band. Place it around your ankles and lie down on your back. Extend your legs up and slowly move them apart so that the band gives you some tension.
Do this until you get plenty of tension and repeat this for 3 reps of 15 each. This will work well for cellulite removal on your inner thighs.
Stand with your legs parallel to your shoulders. Keep your shoulders pulled back and your back straight.
Place your hands on your hips and slowly move your left leg out as far as you can to the side. Slowly return to your start position and repeat with your right leg. Do this for 3 reps of 25 each.
Side Leg Lifts
Lie down on the floor on your side. Prop your head up with your hand and rest the weight on your elbow. Lay your other hand across your top leg or place it on the floor in front of you to help hold your balance.
Slowly raise your leg up and then slowly lower it back to your start position. Do this for 3 reps of 25 each. Repeat this with your other side by changing sides for each rep.
Some of these exercises only take a few short minutes, others will take up to 5. Plan your workout so that your total time (from the time you wake up and begin stretching to the time you finish) is about 30 minutes.
Many women don’t count the morning stretch. Most, however, do count it and state that it’s the best way to get motivated and by counting it you get a jump start on the entire routine. If you spend just 30 minutes per day working on your body you’re sure to get results.
On average most people noticed results within about 2 weeks of beginning their exercise program. By six months into the program, they said that they were more toned and had less cellulite than when they began the program.
When exercising it’s vital to remember that if something hurts, stop. You don’t want to injure yourself. While a healthy stretch is good for you, pain is not good. It means that you’re pulling a muscle or perhaps causing damage to your body.
It’s also wise to check with your doctor before you embark upon any exercise regime. Your doctor can best advise you on whether or not you’re in good enough shape to embark on an exercise program.
