1. I'm almost to my weight loss goal .. but my hugest problem area is my butt. How can I begin getting rid of the cellulite and ripples?

2. My butt still has some fat. Do you see better results when you start from the bottom and build a butt from the ground up with no fat?

3. I know results vary, but how soon did you see yours?

4. Can you tone your butt from body weight exercises?

*I really just want a butt that's firm, no cellulite, with some shape\body*

Thanks!

the most common rule is to build your strength and shape from down up,,, so body weight strength excercice for lower body and core is the primary.

Great to hear you've accomplished so many of your goals! Sometimes the part we want most is the hardest. Body weight exercise are a great way to begin. But to get the full effect you want, you must start doing some resistance training. Perhaps weighted squats or lunges. And yes, diet plays an important role too. It sounds like you shouldn't have trouble reaching that goal, though.

Hi I think I can answer a few of your questions.

If you want to get ride of cellulitis, you will have to lower your bodyfat percentage. It will be hard to get away. And it might never really dissapear. Not all of it at least.

If you want to build a strong booty you have to use resistance training. You can do some bodyweight exercises but at some point those won't have alot of effect without progressive overloading. This means increasing the total work your muscle have to go trough.
Specially for the booty it's pretty essential that you have to go heavier. Since adding more reps won't do alot. So I would advice you to look into ways to make your training heavier. Kettlebelds or rubber training bands and stuff like that are great additions to training at home.

Hey, this is definitely a subject at the top of list's.

You're going to want to focus on these areas of importance:

Circulation

Enhance your circulation by getting massages and doing regular exercise that involves strength training and cardio. Taking showers that switch from hot to cold can also boost circulation.

Diet

Eating a low-fat diet consisting of lean proteins and veggies is one way to lose body fat. Avoid sugar, starches, alcohol, processed foods and sugary fruit. Lowering your carb intake will also help.

Cardio

Interval training -- which involves varying the intensity of your activity -- is a great way to burn body fat.

Strength training

Firming the muscle underneath the cellulite will help smooth the skin's appearance. Focus on strength-training moves that build up the hamstrings, quads, buttocks and hips. Aim for training the lower body at least two times a week, increasing the weight over time to challenge your muscles. Some great effective lower-body exercises are:

-- Step-Ups: Step up on a bench or fitness step, then step down with the same leg. Aim for 20 reps on each leg.

-- Lunges: Walking or stationary lunges effectively target all lower-body muscles. Take one large step forward and lower your body so both of your knees form 90-degree angles, keeping your front knee over the ankle. Return to starting position. Aim for 30 to 50 reps on each leg.

-- Squats: Aim for 50 reps, keeping your weight in the heels and your back straight as you extend your hips down and back (like you're sitting in a chair). Try to lower until your thighs are at least paralell to the floor. Don't let your knees extend past your toes.
