It's no secret that there are scam cellulite treatments in the form of exercise gadgets, creams, lotions, cellulite wraps and pills just to name a couple, that are actually causing more cellulite problems on women's toughest trouble spots. The FDA and the FTC are constantly putting the squeeze on companies that market these rip-off products and programs to unsuspecting women.
But even with this type of policing - innocent women are still falling victim to body harming cellulite treatments. Here's a perfect example:
A typical woman gets so furious about the cellulite bumps and dimples on her lower body and finally decides to start an exercise program, something she really doesn't want to do. But since the girl that does her manicures told her that she heard exercise gets rid of cellulite in the legs, butt, hips, thighs and tummy...
She joins the local gym and gets put on an exercise program with all the typical weights and machines - which is the equivalent of feeling the need to break an egg... with a friggin' sledge hammer for heaven's sake...
It's important to note this type of situation can happen many ways - like a helpful husband who buys the wife a trashy piece of anti-cellulite exercise equipment, or the boyfriend encourages his girlfriend to join Curves circuit training for ladies... just too many to list here.
So she gets into the exercise routine ...busting her butt for a few weeks ...the initial muscle soreness diminishes and she's cruising along doing two or three hard leg, butt, thigh and ab workouts every week.
But every time she strips down to naked before getting in the bath or shower - she glances in the mirror and the dimply bumpy skin is still there with no cellulite reduction at all - maybe just a little stronger in the legs - BUT with a few new aches and pains in her back, knees and hips to go along with the first stages of humiliation and anger.
It's important to note here, this happens with all the rip-off cellulite scams and bogus treatments on the market.
But here is where the problem lies... exercise, wait let me be more specific, the 'proper exercises' will reduce and banish cellulite on the legs, butt, hips, thighs and tummy. However, general exercises that are prescribed to the masses - are not designed to specifically get rid of cellulite on a woman's lower body
Here's a great analogy that illustrates this perfectly:
Do you remember that scene in Rocky where he beats the daylights out of the side of beef hanging in the meat locker where Paulie works?
When he's done killing the side of beef with all he's got - it still in one piece, however it's badly bruised, pretty bloodied, and obviously battered with some broken ribs. Later that same hunk of beef which took a vicious pounding, gets sliced, trimmed and cut into a few dozen pieces with a small, but razor sharp butcher's knife without the weak butcher breaking one drop of sweat or getting out of breath
Here's the lesson - the butcher got the precise job done, properly, with the right tools and the targeted method
Which takes me back to the fact about nasty cellulite treatments that actually make the condition worse - the horrific opposite of what women want!.
So the woman we were talking about earlier is now a few more weeks into her cellulite reduction exercise program and she's convinced the cellulite is not reducing, on the contrary - as much as she doesn't want to admit, she's realizing the cellulite is getting even worse.
Truth be told, an exercise program that doesn't get rid of lower body cellulite - won't prevent it from getting worse and spreading either. Mean, but still true nonetheless.
Easy to understand, right?
Naturally, this frustrated woman quits the body bashing fitness center workouts and gives up hope. Now here's the deeper issue and bigger problem. She still actually thinks the exercise program she was on was intended to reduce her cellulite, when in reality it wasn't at all.
Because of this damaging mis-perception, she's now convinced it's her bad genetics that have plagued her lower body and her sex appeal for the rest of her long life.
This type of scenario happens every single day - all over the world, many times over. I know, because I've been helping women like this for about twenty-one years.
You may be the type of woman who has experienced this type of misdirection and subsequent letdown. But I'll bet you haven't totally lost hope.
You may have cellulite... You may not have any cellulite, YET - or you may be trying to prevent lower body cellulite as you get older.
Whatever the case I hope this article has helped you understand the dangers of ineffective cellulite reduction treatments and how to avoid the pain, agony and despair that result from choosing the wrong method.=
