Banish Cellulite in 20 Minutes

Step 1: Cardio -- Warm up with two minutes of moderate walking, cycling or stairclimbing. (You can use indoor stationary machines.) Increase intensity for eight minutes. Work vigorously enough to be breathing hard but still able to talk in short sentences. Lower the intensity, and cool down for two minutes.

Step 2: Strength -- Do one set of 10 to 15 repetitions of each of the following exercises, using a heavy enough weight to fatigue the muscles. (This is essential for optimum muscle building in these areas.) Your muscles are fatigued when you feel as though you can't do even one more repetition. When you can easily complete 15 reps, increase the weight slightly. Work slowly, counting two seconds to lift and four seconds to lower.

Step 3: Flexibility -- After each strength training exercise, you need to stretch the muscle you just worked. Do each stretch once, holding for 20 seconds. Westcott has found that adopting this stretching strategy can boost strength training results by 20 percent.
