cellulite? hey, it’s normal. even Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova has some ! (may i add she dated adam levine ? ;) )
this literally makes me feel so much better.
im glad ! and holy crap this got a lot of notes really fast :o
honestly most guys dont even give a shit about cellulite. i doubt even half of them know what it means (okay jk) but really, just love your body and if some dude cant accept it then he has too high of expectations.
Anonymous asked: Hi! First of all, thanks so much, you are really helpful and motivating! :) Ok so my question: I'm not overweight now, and I never have been. But I've always had a bit of cellulite, especially around my thighs/butt. I've worked out always, but not much. I've now started working out a lot more, because I want to be fit/healthy not just thin. So my question is, will the cellulite go away as I get fit? Or am I just stuck with it? Is there anything to help with it?
It is definitely possible to reduce the appearance of your cellulite! Cellulite is just fat. So, when you say working out, do you just mean running? You should also be doing strength training!
A study found that 75 percent of women who did just 20 minutes each of cardio and strength training three days a week saw a dramatic reduction in dimpling after two months. This was probably in conjunction with a very reasonable diet, too.
I googled some articles about cellulite:
Dieting in the absence of strength training can actually promote the appearance of cellulite by causing muscle loss, Westcott, author of the new book “No More Cellulite” says, so lifting weights to build and maintain muscle is key.
“Minimizing bodily fat while enhancing muscle firmness, especially in the legs, is the best approach,” he says, and a variety of workout regimens can help.
The muscles you want to train are your glutes and hamstrings, which make up the majority of your trouble areas. My favorite exercises are lunges, squats, plie squats, glute bridges, ham raises, more squats, split squats, box jumps, hill running, and squat jumps. Make sure to use weights for the biggest effect! There are more butt/thigh workouts here.
Let me know if I need to clear anything up!
