Fluid retention, poor circulation, genetics, lack of exercise, stress, diet, or a high level of estrogen can trigger the onset of cellulite, which is an accumulation of fat in the subcutaneous tissue that occurs in some parts of the body, such as abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs, and that creates an effect of “orange peel skin”. According to the Spanish Society of Aesthetic Medicine, 85% of women who have gone through puberty have had or have cellulite.
Although cellulite is difficult to eliminate, it is not impossible to fight. Although it is not easy to make it disappear, there is the possibility of reducing its effects through exercise. As experts from the Spacefit app explain, these are some of the sports sessions that can be most effective in fighting ” orange skin.”
Yoga, a complete activity
Thanks to their different positions with yoga, different areas such as legs, abdomen and buttocks are stimulated. It is a very complete activity for both the body and the mind. Not only is cellulite combated physically, it also reduces the symptoms of stress that often influence its appearance.
Fitboxing to gain strength
This combination of boxing techniques, kickboxing, muay thai and crossfit improves overall fitness thanks to the variety of moves it provides. Fitboxing helps burn calories, gains strength and stamina, and fights stress. All of them contribute to the reduction of cellulite.
Functional training with your own weight
In functional training, muscles are exercised using our own body weight. In addition, group exercises and couples predominate in this type of” training”, which makes it a fun session as well.
Running on a regular basis
Running is an ideal way to get in shape and eliminate extra calories. In addition, if practiced regularly, it will help to eliminate cellulite as it promotes the consumption of adipose tissue in the body.
