We all know that there are different factors contributing to cellulite. The fact is that even skinny people have it, which is supposed to make it more of a skin condition, than a matter of physical conditioning right? Wrong!
The fact is that cellulite is fat, a little different than the other fat deposits in your body, but still FAT. And if I ask you right now- What are the two major ways to get rid of fat? I am sure you would answer "proper diet and exercising". Although, there are other effective methods for dealing with cellulite like certain herbs and natural creams, still the most effective methods are eating the right foods in the right time and doing the right amount of the right exercises. In this post we are going to focus on 5 cellulite reducing exercises that will get you ready for your summer bikini!

1. Around The Clock Lunges
Your goal is to perform 3 sets of 15 reps if you are able to. As with any other exercises in this list, you should build your strength and stamina at your own pace. There is nothing worse to your motivation than setting unrealistic goals from the get go- remember- baby steps!
This exercise will work your thighs, quads, glutes and hamstrings. To perform a clock lunge you need to start by doing a lung to the front with your right foot, then to the right, then to the back and finally a lunge to the left. Got it? Haha, I know this wasn't much of an explanation and thats why I've posted a video for you that will make it much clearer.
2. Goblet Squats
Again your long term aim is 3 sets of 15
This exercise targets many muscle groups, among which the quads, thighs, glutes and hamstrings. To perform a goblet squat you have to hold a heavy object to your chest and squat... for the moms out there- your kids might do in the beginning! Although the exercises is pretty straightforward, I've prepared a video for it
3. Single Leg Romanian Deadlifts
3 sets of 15 reps
Here you perform a straight leg deadlift, only this time you do it with one leg in the air. The targeted muscle groups are the hamstrings. Have a look at the video.
4. Single Leg Supine Hip Extension
Your aim is 3 sets of 15 reps
You perform this glute exercise by laying on your back with your arms to the sides. Keeping your left leg straight and your right knee bent, rise the left leg a few inches... you know what, let's go straight to the video
3 sets of 12
The last exercises on our list is a full body ultimate calorie burner. Its a great combination of a jump, squat and push-up. Here is the video
