So I have a pear shaped body, I have a really big butt and Thick tights, I have lost about 15 pounds. Unfortunately I also have a lot of cellulite it sucks Because I can't wear skirts or shorts :( I do cardio and leg exercises and a decent diet, I can feel my muscles getting harder but I still have a lot of fat around those muscles. and my but did get a little smaller
So my question is.. If I keep doing squats and all these leg exercises and keep building the leg muscle will it start eating up that cellulite fat? I know I have to do cardio to lose the fat completely but I don't wanna lose my but :( I like my thick shape I just wanna be able to wear skirts or shorts
At 5'3 & 168, you are overweight(almost obese), so you'll need to do a combination of cardio to burn fat & strength training such as lunges and squats to tighten and tone.
-30 to 60 minutes of cardio a day such as running, swimming, jump roping etc
-Strength training 1-2x a week. Mix in weight training(you won't bulk up) and calisthenics(squats and lunges). Yes, squats and lunges will help your thighs and they'll also help tighten and tone your butt up
