While aerobic exercise helps burn calories, new research shows that because lower-body resistance training is a quick way to increase muscle, it's key to toning muscles and reducing cellulite. The two cellulite-busting strength moves on the following page come from Bob Golde, a certified fitness coach with State of the Art Fitness in Woodland Hills, Calif. The squat jump works your butt, quads and hamstrings both as you jump and as you land, making it a supereffective, time-efficient move; with the inclined plié leg press, you also tighten and tone your inner thighs.
