Although many scientists believe that the primary cause of cellulite is excess estrogen leading to the weakening of connective tissue, many doctors and health practioners believe that it is due to poor lymphatic and blood circulation. This is fully explained in the instruction manual, “How to Get Rid of Cellulite”.
They claim that women with the same estrogen levels as those with cellulite, avoid the symptoms of cellulite through regular exercise. However, over exertion has been shown to be a major cause of free radicals that lead to cellulite.
The theory is that lack of proper exercise causes poor lymphatic and blood circulation and in particular poor lymph drainage. The lymphatic system is dependent on movement to keep the lymph flowing, meaning that the heart pumping does not keep it circulating through the body. The lymph gets under the skin but because of poor drainage (possibly caused by toxin build up, see Diet Toxins), it cannot escape. The skin then becomes bloated with excess fluid. It is this excess fluid that prevents the incoming blood from reaching the tissues, as well as causing a build up of damaging metabolites know as free radicals.
These free radicals actively attack the tissues causing serious damage to the microcirculation and fiber cells. This in turn prevents the fat that is stored under the skin from being properly absorbed back into the body.
WORK OUTS TO PREVENT CELLULITE
An ideal cellulite workout includes cardiovascular exercise (for example walking, jogging, or swimming), and an anaerobic muscle workout with focus on thighs, hips, and buttocks. Abs is alwasy importand and you can do theme everyday. Having a good trainer that knows these things can help minamize your time wasted in a gym.
The cardiovascular or aerobic workout improves blood and lymphatic circulation, promotes sweating which helps detoxify the skin, and burns fat.
The anaerobic workout is important because it helps to metabolize the fat in localized areas and convert it into muscle tissue. It is especially important for women with cellulite who are not overweight, because it allows them to focus on the target areas.
