Many of us want to be in better shape and reduce the appearance of our cellulite. Many of us don’t have the time or desire to buy gym memberships, visit the gym and/or wear embarrassingly tight clothing in front of others. Many of us would love to find a way to exercise and reduce cellulite that is fast, easy and can be done in the comfort of our own home. Foam roller cellulite exercises might be just the answer you’re looking for.
What Are Foam Rollers?
In case you haven’t heard of it, foam rolling is one of the simplest, easy to do and versatile ways to exercise ever. Foam roller moves help you save time by doubling up on the benefits you get. Generally speaking, most foam roller exercises are similar to regular moves, like a plank, but the foam roller adds the benefits of a deep-tissue massage as you perform the move. And if you exercised in anti-cellulite shorts, you’d get even more benefits.
Massage helps improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which helps bring healthy nutrients to your skin while getting rid of impurities. The result is healthier connective tissue under your skin, and better skin tone, both of which can reduce the orange-peel effect of cellulite
Try These Foam Roller Exercises to Reduce Cellulite
Back-of-Thigh Roll - While sitting on the floor with your legs stretched straight in front of you, place your hands on the floor behind your back, raise your butt and place the roller just above the backs of your knees. With your fingers pointing towards your knees, raise your body off the floor and slowly push it forward so the roller moves along the back of your thighs to just below your butt. Pull your body back to the original position. Do the exercise 10 times.
The Hip Roll - While lying on your right side, put the roller under your hip. With your right leg extended, place your left foot in front of your right knee. Lift your body with both arms. Roll your body up and down so that the roller massages the outside of your thigh. Repeat 10 times.
- The Can-Can Tush Roll - Sit on the roller bend your knees and keep your feet together in front of the roller. Place your hands apart on the floor behind the roller, fingers pointing away from you. Drop your knees to the right, then roll your hips and knees to the left. Repeat that right to left motion 10 times.
