Im not sure if i'm posting this question on the right section but here it goes.
I've been working out for a long time now since I was 19, I'm 32. I started off with just cardio and then at 22 or 23 I started weight training.
I've always done a lot of cardio. I would run about 1 sometimes 1+ hours a day. I would always change it up, I would sprint, jog, run on an incline, etc. I would also do the StairMaster and elliptical, pretty much tried every cardio machine at the gym. Ive also tried plyometrics workouts.
My workout schedule consisted of weight training for 1 hour and cardio for 1 hour 5-6 or even 7 days a week. I'm 5', 114 lbs and last time I checked my body fat I was somewhere between 15-16% so I'm not skinny fat. lol
My diet is fairly healthy, no fried foods (cant remember last time I had a french fry! lol) no red meat, no heavy sauce, I try to stay away from too much sugar or processed foods and drink plenty of water.
I know that 90% of women have cellulite and I wouldn't mind having a little bit but I have a lot. Its on my butt and hamstrings. Even though I'm in good shape its still there and a lot of it. I can't wear shorts and hate going to the beach! Its really frustrating since I workout like crazy and eat healthy.
A friend of mine told me I was doing too much cardio and to stop doing cardio for 1 month. I was like "Are u crazy?! If I stop doing cardio I'm going to get fat!" He promised me that I wouldn't get fat and to trust him. I thought, I have nothing to lose.
So for 3 weeks now I haven't done any cardio. I'm A LOT stronger, I've been lifting heavier. I'm weight training legs TWICE a week instead of once a week.
And I've notice for the FIRST TIME in my life an improvement on my cellulite! I have some hope now!
Was I doing too much cardio?! Is weight training better to get rid of cellulite?
Does anyone else have any tips for me?
