Get Rid of Cellulite with This Legs & Butt Workout

Having cellulite is a really stubborn condition, and it won’t go away from the body without a fight. According to Wane Westcott, Ph.D., a professor of exercise science at Quincy College Really, it’s just fat that happens to be packaged in lumps instead of layers.

What causes cellulite?

There are various factors—genetics, bad circulation, hormones but the physical activities are also very important.

The cellulite tends to accumulate on your butt and legs, so, the best strategy needs to be based on the lower body with high reps of moderately heavy strength moves. This fat can be attacked by building the crucial muscle foundation below it and burning calories in general.
