Fight Cellulite for Your Dream Body

With swimwear season approaching, many clients want to know how to get their bodies in better shape.

Cellulite is a nagging reality for men and women. It plagues our thighs, buttocks, ad bellies as well as other parts of the body. Even with a low body fat content, it is still possible to accumulate cellulite. How do you get the summer body you’ve always dreamed about while fighting cellulite? Here is a simple tip from Midwest Medical Aesthetics to help you reach your goal.

Cellulite is simply dimpled fat; most often, it is dimpled fat over underdeveloped muscle. Some are more prone to developing cellulite than others based on genetics but it is still possible to minimize or eliminate its appearance. Getting rid of cellulite requires a combination of losing excess body fat and building muscle tone.

Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT) combines cardio exercises for weight loss and resistance training for building muscle. It’s the one-two punch that cellulite loathes! The goal is to maintain a fast-paced series of weight training sets that focus on different parts of the body. Calculate your resistance so that you can do 15-20 repetitions at a steady pace, with the last few posing a bit of a challenge. Alternate between upper body and lower body workouts.

For example, exercise your triceps using 10 lb dumbbells, 15 reps each at a steady pace. Then work your quads using 15 reps each at the same pace. Follow up that exercise with one that focuses on your deltoids.

Lose weight, tone your body and look excellent for the summer!
