Ask Rocco: How Can I Lose the Cottage Cheese Thighs?

"I joined Weight Watchers online over a year ago and have lost 30 pounds and have kept it off. I work-out at the gym 3-4 days a week, doing elliptical, stepper, fast walking on treadmill and weights. I usually do 60 minutes of aerobics and switch up area of body with free weights. I also cycle 20-50 miles a week. My problem is how to firm up and lose cellulite from my hips and thighs. I've considered trying to loose 5 more pounds, but don't want to loose any more than that. What do I need to do?"

You’re a friggin' lunatic! I see this all the time and it’s not going to be pretty. All I see in the question is aerobics…aerobics…aerobics and more friggin' aerobics. Holy s**t! Then I see that, you decide to switch one body part with free weights. Oh, how noble.

To be able to lose fat (which cellulite is) around any area you need to replace it with muscle. Gaining muscle in your hips and thighs will round out that area create a smoothing effect.

I would do 25-30 lunges on the same leg for two sets and one set of Mountain Climbers for sixty second before the lunges and one set after. If you don’t know what Mountain Climbers are, go to , get a free Boot Camp Workout Card and I'll show you in person. Keep your rear down on the Mountain Climbers, and in no time you’ll be getting way too many compliments on it.
