Here's what to know about cellulite

Cellulite is fat that shapes pockets right under the skin's surface. This gives your skin a "dimpled" appearance. Anyone can get cellulite, although it's more prevalent among women because of the different allocations of muscle, connective tissue, and fat.

That being said, cellulite is totally, 100% normal. You can't completely eliminate it, but you can greatly reduce it. You can do so by first lowering your overall body fat and eating a calorie deficit with foods high in lean protein and cruciferous vegetables. Second, you need to train properly, and that means incorporating the right exercises into your routine.

In order to reduce the amount of cellulite you have, you should perform strength training movements that will build muscle in that area. You also need to incorporate higher-intensity cardio activities to drive blood flow to the legs. If you want to reduce your cellulite, below are three effective exercises to include in your fitness routine.

Lying flat on your back, place your feet on top of a stability ball. Lift your hips off the ground, and begin curling the ball towards you with your heels, flexing your hamstrings and glutes at the end of the movement. Return the ball to the starting position, and repeat. Be sure to keep your hips up the entire time, and continue bridging as you curl the ball in. Complete 15 to 20 reps of this exercise.


Hip Thrust

Start the movement by setting your upper back on a bench or sturdy platform. Place a dumbbell (or barbell) on your lap with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your core tight, lower your weight down. Push through your heels and hips until they're fully extended, squeezing your glutes hard at the top for 2 seconds. Do 10 to 12 reps.


Treadmill Sprint Intervals

Start this exercise by standing with your legs outside of the belt and setting your treadmill to a 10% incline and the speed a little higher than your typical jog pace. Once the incline and speed are set, hop onto the belt, and sprint hard for 30 seconds.

Once you've sprinted for 30 seconds, grab the handles on the side, and carefully jump back onto the stable non-moving part of the treadmill. Rest for 30 seconds, and then repeat this workout for 10 rounds.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
