If you’re looking for a single best exercise to get rid of cellulite, you’ll find there is no single answer. Different women suffer from cellulite in different parts of the body. Some people get it on the stomach, but the majority of women have it on their hips, thighs, and butt. That’s why you normally target lower body work when trying to get rid of cellulite.

The first thing you should know is that cellulite is just fat. It’s not made of “toxins”, circulation problems, excess water storage, or anything else.  It’s been medically proven that it’s exactly the same as any other fat in your body. The dimpled appearance happens when excess fat bulges through the connective tissue under the skin.  Fat is soft, and so it can bulge out like stuffing from a mattress.  This is amplified by the fact that the skin on the thighs and butt is thinner than on other parts of the body.

As a long time personal trainer, I can assure you that resistance training is the most efficient way to get rid of cellulite. You can’t beat running and biking for exercising the heart and lungs, but for cellulite reduction and general weight loss, resistance training is king. It’s hard for many women to grasp this simple concept.  If you have cellulit

e on your butt, you should be targetting gluteal exercises. If you have cellulite on your thighs, you’re better off with hamstring exercises.  By targeting specific muscle groups, you’re tightening and toning specific problem areas without wasted energy.

If I had to pick one single best exercise to get rid of cellulite, it would have to be the squat. Squatting is a compound exercise that works all the large muscles in the lower body, including the gluteals and hamstrings. However, a complete, highly targeted routine will give much better results than a single movement.  As you would guess, there are also other factors that contribute to cellulite and shoudl be dealt with along with your resistance training program.

The good news is that you can lose cellulite fairly easily using a highly targeted cellulite training program combined with some very specific dietary replacements. This combination helps regulate problem hormones and puts your body in a cellulite fighting state, while also tightening the muscle and skin around your cellulite. It is possible to get rid of cellulite, just don’t rely on a ‘miracle cellulite cream’ to do it for you.

  1. What resistance training exercises would you most highly recommend for cellulite loss?

    • Honestly. Barbell Squats or Deadlifts.

      Both of which would help balance out your hormones while with the proper diet and you will find the appearance of cellulite passing away little by little as soon as 3 weeks, but it would take about 2 months for it to completely disappear. It all depends on your compliance nutrition and how well you dedicate yourself to your training program.

    What is a deadlift? Sorry for the slow response – it’s been a while. I am fairly certain I know what a barbell squat is.
