@1stRosie:  I’m sure you’ll get all sorts of answers, but horseback riding and dance seem to work for me when it comes to the battle with cellulite.

@1stRosie:  I LOVE ballroom, and ballet (Barre classes I think they’re called) is supposed to be really good for you but I’m not that much of a fan.  I like hip hop classes too, but they seem to be more cardio geared.  I usually look on groupon or living social to help with the costs.

Yeah I ran acorss the Squats at Home instagram feed and I’m like no way you got that butt with just squats at home!  It’s a whole approach I’m sure – fitness, lifestyle, food choices, cardio, weights.

I like biking.  I think it’s done quite a bit for my butt and legs just going to and from work.

In my boxing class, though, we tend to do a lot of jump squats and regular squats, nothing really with weights though.  Boxing made my butt fabulously cellulite free.

Do NOT train the same muscle every day! Give your body some rest and give your butt a chance to recover. Start doing barbell squat without any weights on the barbell, but get as low as you can. Make sure you maintain a good form and posture, because it is very easy to get a knee injury doing squads. Once you get a hold of the correct form, start adding weights. Go as heavy as you can and go down as low as you can. I do a lot. I squat 155 lbs every leg workout (which is 2 times a week), and I can go as heavy as 175 on a good day. I also am a big fan of deadlift. I found that it works my glutes just as good as barbell squats. Same thing. Go as heavy as you can. I do 185 and my butt is done. I have a hard time functioning after such a hard workout, but I can definitely see results!

When you say dimples do you mean cellulite or skinny butt side intent dimples?  Lol I only as cause there’s both… 

I second dance – I do ballet barre fitness classes and as a dancer never had cellulite issues…

Diet has quite an effect on it I think, talk to your nutritionist.  I’ve also heard circulation plays a part, people recommend dry brushing or massage.

@1stRosie:  I felt the same way about my bum lol I think that me taking up running has definelty gotten rid of the unsightly bumps I had at the back of my leg they aren’t completely gone but they are going away 🙂

@1stRosie: I have a fitspo account on IG! Follow me at innerbalance if you want. Do you have one?

I’m doing comp prep right now and glutes/hamstrings are my priority muscle group to work. I really like using the stair climber (or stepper) for my post workout cardio. I also do Plie Squats and Hip Glute Thrusts…those will make you feel the burn!!

Not entirely sure if this is what you are going for, but ice skating is a great butt/quad work out . . you just have to do something to compensate for your calves. Dance is great for that!
