Fat Loss Tools to Remove Cellulite

(Written by a Fat Loss & Women's Transformation Expert, Alex Eatly, NASM CPT)

To Remove cellulite you must burn stubborn body fat. Burning excess body fat will shrink the fat cells and eliminate the appearance of cellulite. For fat loss you must create a calorie deficit by speeding up your metabolism through healthy nutrition and exercise (which I've covered in previous articles). Today however, I want to look at the more specific exercises techniques you should be using for fat loss.

A seldom used tactic by women for rapid fat loss is strength training and intervals.

Strength training is the second most important activity in any fat loss program just behind nutrition. If you don't lift weights then you'll never get the body shape and fat loss you want, even being a woman you should lift weights, don't think you'll get bulky because it is very hard for any woman to build any significant amount of muscle.
Every pound of muscle you add to your body (which actually takes up less space than a pound of fat, and looks and feels tighter and firmer) burns an extra 50-100 calories a day because it is metabolically active. Therefore, boosting your metabolism – yey :-)!

I know 50 calories doesn't sound a lot but stick with me. So if for example, you replaced 10 pounds of fat with 10 pounds of muscle over a year then you would burn an additional 500 calories a day doing nothing, resting, watching tv, having your hair done. Over 7 days that's an additional 3,500 calories. Guess how many calories are in a pound of fat – 3,500!! You just burnt 1 pound of fat in week from doing nothing. 1 pound of fat gone in a week = 52 pounds of fat lost over a year, at rest – ha can you imagine how much easier it would be to maintain a slim, toned and firm body when your body is burning calories like there's no tomorrow.

Imagine what happens when you use that metabolically active tissue (muscle).

Now are these numbers perfectly accurate? No. But the underlying theory holds true - the more muscle you have and the more muscle you activate the more calories you will burn per day .

And that's where the Look Great Naked: Complete Body Makeover for women excels.

Now you should look to use full body workouts 3 times a week with a day rest in between. As for exercise selection, you will need to concentrate on compound movements that require a lot of muscle mass (presses, rows, squats, and deadlifts) therefore expending the most energy and speeding up your metabolism. These exercise selections will result in the greatest amount of fat loss in the minimum amount of time.

So what about cardio? Don't get caught up in thinking that "cardio" is the most important aspect of a fat loss program. A program incorporating intervals burns more calories and stimulates your metabolism more than steady state cardio would. Not only will you burn more calories while you're doing high intensity interval training, but it also revs your metabolism higher than traditional forms of cardio by boosting EPOC.

EPOC is defined scientifically as the "recovery of metabolic rate back to pre-exercise levels".

Interval training is an amazing addition to a fat-loss program focusing on resistance training. Research showed that intense exercise increases use of free-fatty acids after exercise. This suggests that in the recovery period after intense exercise, the body will depend more heavily on fats for energy while it replenishes its energy stores.
Anyone looking to "Get Lean & toned with cellulite free legs, sculpted bum & flat stomach" must incorporate interval training for
fat loss and the maintenance of muscle.
