I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Long live the board shorts!

Donkey kicks will probably work better. Hold on to the back of a chair and kick each leg out ..straight back, and some to the side. Get your foot up level with your butt cheek and kick your leg straight out.

The goal is to improve the look of the area and drop the fat.

In this case, wouldn't they be ass kicks rather than donkey kicks?
I'm not sure how this would work for cellulite exactly, but in my opinion, the burpee is the ultimate form of bodyweight exercise that requires no additional equipment (other than your own bad self).
Here's a description of what I'm talking about:
I recommend doing them in "descending sets" as described here:
This workout won't make you bulky, but will tone nearly every muscle between your neck and your ankles.
Yes, genetics. And for me it was the weight gain. I will keep trying. And it does appear improved, more firmer. It's just not the a*s I used to have. It's too bad, I'd love to walk the beach in just a bathing suit. Thank god
board shorts are in.
I will try some of the lunges, but that always seems to just work my quads.
Squats, one leg squats and walking lunges are excellent if done in correct form. Anya, you probably feel the quad more in lunges because you may be pressing from the toe/ball of foot or allowing knee to go past the toe. When done correctly you will feel it big time on backside in upper/inner hamstring/adductors and glutes. The quads are a player also but I rarely get sore in quads when doing them even with 50 lbs dumbbells.
The key is a nice full stride with a straight body. Also, land on the heel and push from heel while always keeping the knee above ankle. It may take time for many to loosen up the hammys, hip flexors etc. but when you get it down it is awesome. When I do them I never let the ball of my foot ever touch the ground only my heel. Of course this is a great exercise for balance and core strength also and practice makes perfect. The lunge is one hell of an exercise for runners and an excellent functional exercise for all running sports. Work on the form though!
