Cellulite and exercises to combat it

12 min read

Every girl sooner or later encounters such a phenomenon as cellulite. This clash goes into war, and if the girl is serious and ready to use all known methods, then she will undoubtedly win. What is cellulite? These are fatty deposits that form and occur in the subcutaneous tissue. In order to get rid of them, many ways have been invented, for example, hardware medicine, massages, body wraps, creams, but the most effective way are exercises from cellulite.

Causes and how it looks

In fact, it has long been known that almost 90% of girls discover this cosmetic defect, regardless of the type of figure, weight or age (although its manifestation may increase over the years, but age is not a primary indicator). The reason for its formation are malnutrition and a sedentary lifestyle. Accumulated in the cells, water, toxins and fats interfere with the withdrawal of waste products, thereby slowing down the circulation of blood in the connective tissue in the body. This is how tubercles form, which appear on the body in the form of an “orange peel”.

The disease of the 21st century is divided into four stages:

the first stage does not visually give itself away, since it manifests itself in the form of a decrease in the elasticity of the skin of the buttocks;
the second stage is easier to notice: if you put a fold on the body with your fingers, then tubercles will appear on it;
at the third stage, compression is not necessary, since cellulite is visible to the naked eye. Increased seals contribute to circulatory disorders, which is already fraught with consequences. In addition, natural muscle contraction is impeded;
at the fourth stage, blood supply is disturbed, the skin becomes denser and colder, you can even notice a blue tint. Nerve endings are injured, and muscle tissue atrophies.

Well-known advice relating to any ailments affecting our body: the best way not to get sick is to carry out preventive procedures and treatment in the initial stages. This also applies to unpleasant tubercles on the female body. But the difficulty is that at the initial stage it is very difficult to see the first signs of subcutaneous seals. Therefore, the most effective prevention is an active lifestyle, the basic principles of proper nutrition and adequate water intake. They will help to cope with the solution of the problem in the first two stages. But in the third and fourth without reinforced and varied training, wraps, anti-cellulite massage and other procedures can not do.


Useless exercises in the fight against cellulite

It has long been known that sport in all its manifestations is beneficial for the body. However, in the fight against cellulite, not all types of training will be effective. For instance:

vibratory simulator – it, like the roller simulator, is itself useless in the fight against orange peel, but if used in combination with training, you can achieve the desired result;
fitball – of course, this is a wonderful sports equipment that is useful for the spine, improves flexibility and coordination of movements. However, in order to get rid of cellulite, it is not practical to use a sports ball;
swimming – practicing this sport is able to tighten the whole body, due to the uniform distribution of the load. Although friction against water has a beneficial effect on the quality of the skin, it will still not be enough to get rid of cellulite in problem areas;
cycling – it all depends on the pace. If you ride relaxed and slowly, then there will be no effect, and if you choose a sports mode and ride at a fast pace, you can significantly strain the muscles.

Useful exercises

Now consider the beneficial actions that help get rid of cellulite. They are those that hit problem areas. For example, cardio, strength training and stretching exercises. During these works, just the problem areas get the main load.

Types of training in the gym

The advantages of training in the gym include a large selection of exercise equipment, additional weights that make our muscles work better, and motivation, which increases every day. While practicing in the gym, you can get rid of cellulite and tighten the whole body, thereby becoming the owner of a beautiful figure. But before starting classes, especially if you are a beginner, take at least one workout with a professional trainer. This is necessary in order to protect yourself in the future from unnecessary sprains, injuries and other consequences. He will also help you find the right weight for your weights, show you the correct technique for doing the exercises, and can even give you some nutrition tips.

Barbell squat

This is one of the most popular and effective activities. During its implementation, a large load falls on the muscles of the hips and priests, and these are precisely the very zones that are most susceptible to the manifestation of cellulite.

Starting position – feet shoulder-width apart, lower back bend, put the barbell on your shoulders, but make sure that it does not lie too high, as this will load the cervical vertebrae. Squat to parallel to the floor, you can imagine that there is a low bench behind. The knees should not go beyond the socks so as not to damage the joints. The rise is due to pressure on the heels and the outside of the foot. The knees should not be fully extended so that the load from the target muscles does not shift on them. And if you straighten your back, then the load will go to it. In the first stages of performing squats, it is important to choose the right weight. Therefore, for starters, it is better to take an empty bar to feel the performance technique well, and only then to pick up weights.

Romanian Deadlift

Of all the varieties of deadlift, the Romanian will be the most effective in combating orange peel. She works well on the muscles of the buttocks and hips. In contrast to the classic deadlift, during which the load is distributed to all the muscles of the legs, during the Romanian period, specific target zones that need to get rid of cellulite are loaded.

The starting position is to place the feet shoulder width apart, bend the knees slightly, the barbell on the floor in front of you. Leaning behind the bar, the back must be bent in the lower back. Raising the barbell, the lower back also remains bent, do not bend the knees to the end. The movement occurs due to compression of the buttocks and tension of the legs. Instead of a barbell, you can use dumbbells, and for beginners, the best option for weight training is an empty bar. These sports equipment should not be raised above the middle of the thigh.

It is important to know that deadlift and squats are contraindicated for people who have problems with the spine, hip or knee joints. Therefore, in this case, it is advisable to engage in a block simulator with minimal weights.

Water aerobics

Unlike regular swimming, this type of load will help in the fight against hypodermic seals. Performing quick movements in water, you create the effect of hydromassage, which in a complex tightens the body, raises the tone of the body and improves the condition of the skin. But this type of activity should be excluded for those who have epilepsy or have intolerance to chlorinated water.

Water aerobics


The most popular today is an elliptical trainer, since it includes a treadmill, a stepper, and an exercise bike. During work, endurance actively develops on it and blood flow increases, which favorably affects the work of the cardiovascular system. The greatest burden falls on the muscles of the lower body.


Leg bending and extension

Pumps the back of the thigh and butt. Initial position: lie on the bench face down, hold the handles of the simulator with your hands, and run the heels under the roller. Legs are lifted at an angle of up to 90 degrees, with no knees resting on the bench. With the right technique, the target muscles will perfectly tighten and improve their shape. It’s worth starting with small weights and gradually raising them.

How to understand when weight needs to be increased? When it becomes easy to carry out a task, it means that the muscles have adapted to the received loads. The fact is that cellulite goes away only when a strong tension in the muscles is felt. Workouts on the lower body must be performed twice a week in three approaches, the repetition rate of each exercise depends on weight, the higher it is, the lower the number of repetitions. On average, this number varies from 10 to 15. But if the weight of the weight exceeded the mark of 20 kg, then the number of workouts on the lower body should be reduced to one per week. This is done in order to have time to go through the recovery process. The sensation of pain in the muscles after training means that they are restored and strengthened.

Before practicing with weights in the gym, be sure to go through an examination with a doctor who will give his recommendations for the classes. The fact is that there are a lot of nuances and contraindications with which you can not train. These include:

kidney disease
cardiovascular disease;
musculoskeletal disease;
spinal problems;
high blood pressure;
vision problems;
recent surgery, or infectious diseases.

Training at home

Not everyone has the opportunity to attend the gym, but this is not a reason to get upset and give up. Many exercises have been invented for cellulite at home, the main thing is that there is self-discipline and a desire to work on the quality of your body. From the inventory you will need dumbbells, but even if there are none, water bottles, or even working with your own weight, can serve as an alternative.

It is important to note that before you start doing home exercises for cellulite, you also need to consult a doctor. Since even working with your own weight, you can hurt yourself.

Home exercises


They give their results in the fight against sagging. The first position is to take dumbbells in hand for weight, one leg is laid back with support on the toe, and the second is pushed forward with one step. Squatting occurs due to bending the front leg and knee abduction to the level of the toe. The body must be held evenly, without bending forward, the front knee should not be pulled out of the toe. Perform in turn on each side. If there are problems with the spine, weak ligaments and varicose veins, then this type of load should be abandoned.

Plie squats

Effective exercise from cellulite on the legs and pope, which came to us from ballet. Initial position: put your feet at shoulder level, knees turned to the sides and look with socks in one direction. The back should be without deflection throughout the entire time. Squatting is carried out parallel to the floor, but if stretching allows, then lower. The main rule is to monitor your posture and that your knees and socks do not turn inward. It can be performed with or without weighting.

Pushing the heel up

An isolating and at the same time quite effective exercise in the fight against cellulite on the hips and buttocks. Starting position: kneel down, place your palms opposite, keep your arms and back straight. One leg is supportive, the second leg is pushed upward, as if the core lies on the back of the foot, while the knee does not need to be straightened, the heel should look at the ceiling. After pushing out, slowly lower it. You need to deal with a burning sensation in the target muscle.

If you want to increase the load, you can use the dumbbell, holding it with your knee.


An insulating movement, which is performed at a moderate pace and is aimed at working out the upper part of the gluteal muscles. Initially, you should stand on all fours with emphasis on the elbows, the back is straight. With a sharp movement, raise the leg up, while the foot is shortened (the toe looks down), then lower it down.

Lifts on your side

Exercise for lightly loaded muscles in the hips. First position: lying on one side, bend the arm underneath for support at the elbow, the supporting leg is on the floor, for this it is bent at the knee. Perform rises with a straight limb in medium amplitude, do not lower them to the end so that the muscles are in good shape. Pull the toe up while lifting.

Mahi lying on his side

They include in their training process to work out the outer and stretch the inner part of the thigh. First you need to lie on one side, bend your arm at the elbow, the supporting limb is straight, the socks are looking forward. The free and straight limb is made to swing up (as high as possible), then calmly goes down, slightly touching the second, supporting one. Be sure to ensure that the case also does not deviate either forward or backward.

Circles lying on their sides

During this physical activity, the gluteal muscle is stretched and worked out, and with it the inner and outer thighs. As in the previous versions, you need to perform lying on one side, connect your hands behind your head, do not bend your knees. Upper – lift up, then smoothly move it forward and then take it as far back and down as possible, but not touching the floor. Contraindications: diseases of the spine, since the back is actively involved.

Gluteus bridge

Its main task is to pump up priests. Lying face up, put the feet shoulder-width apart and bend at the knees, feet are on the floor, hands are parallel to the body. The rise of the pelvis is due to the maximum tension of the buttocks.


In this load, it is also often called a sail, buttocks are actively working. Starting position: lying on your stomach, knees straight, buttocks tense, head rests on bent arms. For a minute, holding the feet together, pull upwards by 15-20 cm, lifting is carried out due to tension in the gluteal muscles, at the extreme point linger for a few seconds and gradually lower it down.

In order for the training to be as effective as possible, all movements must be performed slowly, focusing on the target muscles in order to feel their contraction. Start with a small number of repetitions, about 15-20 with their own weight and 12-15 with weights, then bring them to their maximum. The same number of repetitions applies to asymmetric exercises (on each side). However, the body always remains the main guideline, therefore, first of all, you need to listen to your feelings.

For hall and home

There are a number of physical activities that can be performed both in the gym and at home. These include any cardio training. This type of active training improves blood circulation, removes toxins from the body along with excess fluid.

Step aerobics. In the gym, this is a stepper, the alternative is climbing stairs. The rise is carried out at the expense of the legs, the foot is fully set, the back is always straight. The load is on the ass and hips, which helps to get rid of a cosmetic defect.
Running and walking. Here, respectively, either a treadmill, or any other path in the fresh air. One of the most effective ways to deal with the first enemy of most girls. Running strengthens the body, tones muscles and increases stamina. But since the knees are quite heavily loaded, people with high body weight should abandon it. For them, walking will be more useful.
Jump rope. Sports equipment that you can always carry with you. While jumping rope, a large influx of blood comes to the hips and buttocks, and this is the first opponent of the “orange peel”. Jump rope must be at least fifteen minutes a day. You can divide them into approaches, but during the rest you can’t sit still, you need to move.
Twerk. In this type of hot dance, the emphasis falls on the ass, respectively, it is the gluteal and abdominal muscles that work most actively here.
Horse trotting. This type of ride will work the hips and buttocks. A live simulator will help get rid of subcutaneous seals on the frogs. However, if there are diseases of the nervous system or problems with the knee joints, it is better not to approach the horse.

Two tips: the first – if there are contraindications to cardio loads, then it is better to train not in a group, but individually, for independent control of the load, time and condition of the body. The second – you can achieve the desired result faster if you rub an anti-cellulite product into problem areas before starting classes and provide them with thermal insulation.

Rope jumping


It requires patience and self-discipline, since during stretching the sensations are rather painful, the approach here is also especially careful. Only with the right technique can an effect be possible. Most girls, feeling pain, abandon attempts to stretch as they should. Thus interfering with muscle progress.

Immediately, we note what contraindications exist:

period of exacerbation of joint diseases;
recovery process after an injury;
diseases of the cardiovascular system;
при повышенном артериальном давлении – с осторожностью;
при возникновении острой боли в любой области тела.

Если противопоказания не обнаружены, то можно приступать. Но для начала создай комфортную температуру воздуха в помещении и разогрей мышцы пятнадцатиминутной кардио тренировкой любого вида. Лучшим показателем растяжки является шпагат, но чтобы на него сесть, нужна качественная работа над собой. Рассмотрим несколько видов растяжки:

чтобы растянуть мускулатуру бедра, следует встать насколько можно шире. Согнуть одно колено и присесть, чем ниже, тем лучше. Вторая – не сгибаясь в колене, тянется за первой. Затем плавный подъем и смена положения на другую сторону. Во время всего действия таз нельзя разворачивать;
растянуть переднюю, заднюю и внешнюю зону бедер можно с помощью действия, похожего на выпады вперед, с одним отличием – желательно присесть как можно ниже, постепенно выпрямляя отведенную назад конечность;
задняя поверхность бедра растягивается таким способом – поставив стопы вместе и не сгибая колен, тянуться вниз к полу, стараясь поставить ладони на него. Как только это удастся, можно усложнить задачу и завести их за ступни;
следующий этап – полушпагат. Сидя на полу, прямые ноги максимально расставить в стороны и поочередно к каждой тянуться животом.

Девушки и женщины, которые хотят избавиться от неровностей с помощью растяжки должны набраться терпения, а достигнув цели, также можно будет похвастаться стройной фигурой и подтянутыми ягодицами.

Косметические средства

Не только упражнения помогают против целлюлита, разработана масса средств для ухода за кожей. Это кремы, скрабы, маски и обертывания. Каждая девушка сама выбирает, что ей больше нравится и подходит, а зная, какие компоненты входят в состав того или иного средства, можно легче определиться с выбором. К примеру:

кофеин подтягивает, тонизирует кожу и придает ей эластичность;
кислоты, входящие в состав масла чилийской розы восстанавливают барьерные свойства, устраняют сухость, шелушение и уменьшают чувствительность;
морская соль снимает отеки и обновляя верхний слой эпидермиса, придает мягкость и гладкость;
перец, горчица, имбирь и другие специи отлично разогревают;
эфирные масла снимают раздражение, расслабляют и являются базой для антицеллюлитного массажа.

Рассмотрим какое влияние на качество тела оказывают самые популярные косметические средства, в составе которых можно найти вышеописанные продукты.

Кремы желательно наносить во время массажа проблемных зон. Конечно, компоненты, входящие в состав крема благоприятно влияют на кожу, однако, большее воздействие все же оказывает массаж.
Антицеллюлитный скраб в первую очередь активизирует кровообращение, а благодаря отшелушивающему эффекту смягчает, тонизирует, подтягивает и выравнивает.
Маски и обертывания. Входящие в состав разогревающие компоненты оказывают более активное и глубокое воздействие. Они смягчают, питают, тонизируют.

Какие бы способы борьбы с неровностью кожи вы ни выбрали, нужно помнить, что за неделю конечно же от него невозможно избавиться, результат зависит от регулярности и интенсивности тренировок. Секрет стройности заключается в комплексном подходе – это правильное питание, достаточное потребление воды, различные виды тренировок в зале, либо выполнение упражнений от целлюлита в домашних условиях и косметологические процедуры. При грамотно составленном графике занятий, включающем в себя силовые и кардиотренировки, с обязательной заключительной частью в виде растяжки и соблюдении всех вышеперечисленных условий, результат порадует гораздо раньше, чем ожидается.
