This type of physical activity burns a lot of calories in a short time, being ideal for burning accumulated fat, in addition to improving heart strength and breathing capacity. They should be performed for at least 20 minutes daily.

2. Localized exercises

Glute exercises help to increase muscle mass, allowing you to fight cellulite and improve self-esteem. But these exercises are also important because when the gluteus maximus and medius muscles are weak there can be pain in the back, knees and hips.
