As a new mom, I totally understand how quickly cellulite can form. We do a lot of sitting and become so busy we maybe forget about the backs of our bodies or even our bodies in general. But if you follow these 3 exercises, you can get rid of the cellulite on the back of your legs!
In this video, I’m going to share with you three of my favorite exercises to help get rid of the cellulite on the back of your legs. Cellulite on the back of your legs, also known as your hamstrings, is pretty common – if fact, between 80 and 90 percent of women will probably experience cellulite, according to Medical News Today.
You can do this workout pretty much anywhere. All you’re going to need for these exercises is a medium sized pair of dumbbells, a stability ball, and a chair. I also recommend a mat, although it’s not required, because you’ll be on the floor for the two of the exercises.
1. Stiff-Legged Deadlift (0:30)
The first exercise is just a regular stiff-legged deadlift. So, to set up your form, hold your weights in hands, pull your shoulders back, set them down, and draw your belly in. Make sure your feet are facing straight ahead and in line with your hips. You always want to line up your joints for safety. Next, we’re going to tip from your hips, go straight down, and look out about two feet in front. Then, slowly come up and squeeze your bum tight. Inhale on your way down, exhale on your way up, and squeeze. So I’ll repeat that 15 to 20 repetitions, and then moving on to the next exercise.
2. Leg Curl (1:05)
For the second exercise, all you need is a stability ball and your mat. First, we’re going to lay onto your mat, put the ball underneath your heels, lie comfortably here, hands down by your sides, and plant them down. You’re going to dig your heels into the ball and lift your hips up, find balance. Then, you’re going to draw the heels in and under the glutes, and back out. Make sure you exhale while drawing the ball in and inhale to release. Try to maintain those hips really high, and another 15 to 20 repetitions, nice and slow.
3. Single Leg Bridges (1:36)
Then the third and last exercise only requires a chair, a bench, or the side of your bed. Again, laying on your back, get kind of close to whatever it is that you’re using. You want to dig your heel into the edge. Send one leg up, keeping the knees close together, and then lifting the hips up and right back down. Exhale at the top, inhale at the bottom, and we’ll do 15 to 20 repetitions on each side. Change sides, knees together, pressing the heel all the way up.
All right, so that’s it. To make this a quick and effective workout, to help to reduce the cellulite behind the backs of your legs, all you need to do is 15 to 20 repetitions for two to three sets, and that will be your workout.
