Can vibration plates help you get rid of cellulite?
I often get asked can vibration plates help you get rid of cellulite? Vibration plates are great for overall toning and they can help you get rid of cellulite. Let’s take a look at how and why.
What is cellulite?
To understand how vibration plates help you get rid of cellulite, we need to understand what cellulite actually is. Sure we’ve all seen that dimpled skin or orange peel effect that happens on ladies thighs and bottoms, but what’s causing it?
It’s all to do with the way that our bodies store fat. We have fatty dermal (deep skin) cells that connect to the skin with inelastic fibres. When these become enlarged, the skin ends up dimpled.
Contributors to cellulite build up include fluid retention, storing body toxins, poor circulation and hormonal changes.
When the circulation and subcutaneous tissues are blocked, even more cellular waste gets stuck here, the tissues harden and the skin loses some of its elasticity.
Cellulite isn’t harmful whatsoever, it’s normal and it’s natural but can be reduced and prevented altogether if you’re willing to work at it. Awareness of the causes and deciding to do something about it means you’re already halfway there. Many people choose to ignore their cellulite completely.
How to beat cellulite?
There are all sorts of crazy lotions and potions out there that say that can beat cellulite. Really though, it’s only through changing your diet, exfoliating a lot, drinking lots of water and exercising that cellulite will go away. And your vibration plate is what comes in handy when you’re exercising.
How do vibration plates help you get rid of cellulite?
Vibration plates are brilliant for all over and especially targeted exercise on those cellulite-prone zones. You can do lower body exercises such as calf and thigh massages, lunge, squaat, step ups and really get your glutes, quad muscles, hamstrings and calves toned up.
Getting these muscles going and burning the fat will remove the layers of cellulite that’s covering the muscles.
If you suffer from cellulite around your tummy, exercises like planks and abdominal crunches on your vibration plate will help get rid of the cellulite on this area.
Vibration plates help your body burn fat and build up lean muscle.
They also improve your circulation, improving blood flow and helping you flush out lots of the toxins that have built up in your fatty areas, that are causing the cellulite in the first place.
But please remember, you cannot rely solely on your vibration plate to beat your cellulite, you also need to change your lifestyle as well, the vibration plate is a tool to help you.
