Should You Exercise To Get Rid Of Cellulite?

One question that comes up all the time is should you exercise to get rid of cellulite? It’s a really good question and the answer is, probably.

In almost every case of cellulite, especially when it’s on the hips and thighs, excess body fat and/or a lack of muscle tone is to blame. Of course there are other factors, but this is the most obvious place to start.

While there are many different types of exercises you can do, muscle shaping and building moves are almost always beneficial for cellulite reduction. Most women don’t make a habit of lifting weights and building up their muscles so this is an area that usually needs work.

If you are also overweight, cardio activity combined with muscle training will help a lot. But, experts now recommend what’s referred to as interval training over traditional cardio or long boring walks on the treadmill, endless aerobics and similar activities.

So What Is Interval Training, Anyway?

Working out using intervals involves doing short bursts of vigorous activity followed by an ample period of a recovering activity. These two levels of activity are repeated several times during a single workout. Here’s an example using the treadmill:

Doing intervals on a treadmill could involve a 5 minute warm up at an easy pace. Then, you might go for 30 seconds at a very difficult pace and then return to a slower pace for 2 minutes to recover. Repeat until you’ve performed 20 minutes of exercise and cool down at an easy pace for another 5 minutes. This is much more powerful than 30 or even 45 minutes on the treadmill at an easier pace steady throughout.
