Women's Butt Blaster Do's And Don'ts, 1

Okay ladies, this week's articles are related to helping you "sculpt" your butt and hips (thighs and legs also).

Every woman I know is concerned about:

--the size and shape of her butt,

--"saddle bags" forming on the hips and

--"jiggling jelly" thighs (including cellulite).

As for cellulite, it is actually collections of fat just underneath (subcutaneous fat) the skin which causes it to dimple, pucker up or lump up. There are many factors that determine whether you have cellulite---your genes, gender, skin thickness and amount of body fat all play a part.

What you need to know is that there are no quick fixes for cellulite (despite what some commercials promote)! Some treatments such as liposuction and mesotherapy may give you some TEMPORARY relief from your cellulite. Liposuction is actually meant to remove deep fat tissue (visceral fat) and not cellulite. In my opinion, your best bet would be to reduce overall body fat through weight training and high intensity interval cardio.

Some exercises that you are wasting your valuable time (very little benefit) when it comes to toning your butt, hips and thighs:

1. Seated hip abductor machine (skip this machine),

2. Seated adductor machine (skip this also),

3. Slow, long cardio sessions (there is evidence to suggest that this type of cardio shifts a woman's weight from the upper body to lower body),

4. Any fitness gadget that supposedly "tones" your butt and thighs,

5. Elliptical machine cardio sessions,

6. Seated hamstring machine (there are better alternatives),

7. Seated leg extension machine (there are better alternatives) and

8. Leg exercises done on BOSU balls, balance discs, etc. (overrated).

In the next articles in this series, I will tell you what you need to do to "blast the fat" from your butt, hips and thighs.
