Hi Nicole 🙂 ,
just want to take this opportunity and thank you for creating this website, the very helpful and most importantly very educating videos you upload and add on regular basis. They helped and keep helping me each and everytime i work out.
I have started working out to give definition and tighten up my body and have been going to the gym ( 5 times a week, weights and cardio ) and eating healthy for almost a year now. My body and posture has changed and i truly love the outcome. I have (what i can call) shoulders now!!!… but those little dimples (cellulite) on my lover body (glutes, back/front of my thighs) just won’t disappear. The shape of my legs has changed and i like it 🙂 , there is a slight muscle definition but the cellulite makes it all just … disappointing, frustrating and sad.
Any advice you have or can give please???
Thanking you kindly in advance

Ugh the dreaded cellulite! Unfortunately some of that may not go away, but you can absolutely drastically decrease it with a proper diet and losing overall bodyfat. Eating healthy means different things to different people. Start tracking your foods to get a real look at what you can improve 😉Log in to reply
Thank you very much for the above Nicole. I really appreciate it. By eating healthy i meant truly being focused on what i eat and when. It is a science i must say…you keep experiencing with food,amount, what and when…sometimes it is confusing, just so much info on the internet…Log in to reply
but i won’t give up, i’ll keep trying.
Thanks so much!Log in to reply

I saw Mike Chang from Muscle and Fitness include laterals to the ceiling in an upper back workout. Does that exercise work any of the back?Log in to reply
Nevermind, I watched it again. Trapezius muscle!Log in to reply

If he was leaning forward I could see that, but standing upright is primarily the medial head of the deltoidLog in to reply

Hi Nicole! I tried the behind the back move this morning and failed miserably. I set it at 5# but couldn’t lift it very high. Does that just mean I need to work on building up those muscles? I can do the 4 other moves.Log in to reply
Yes it just means you have to build up the strength. Be sure your form is perfect!Log in to reply
Fantastic! Exactly what I needed….. looking forward to incorporating some of these into my next shoulder workout. I particularly appreciate your insruction on anatomy on these multi-faceted muscle groups (ie – particular exercises that work the medial head of the delt, versus the front or rear). Keep up the great work – your website is the BEST resource 🙂Log in to reply
Did the press and the cable raises today!! Loved them! Def felt the burn in the medial delts! Thanks, Nicole!Log in to reply
Yes!!!! tomorrow is shoulders and I’m gonna try some of these… thanks for the inspiration <3Log in to reply
Same here! Can’t wait to mix it up a little!Log in to reply
Thanks a lot for this, I´m struggling to give roundness to my shoulders and I would love more tips to achieve an hourglass body. 🙂Log in to reply
I mean, hourglass body type, sorry for my English 🙂Log in to reply
Wow! Perfect timing!! Doing my first figure competition and met with Tanji Johnson to join her save fitness group. She recommended that I build up my shoulders and mainly the medial deltoid!! I definitely get bored with the same workouts and these will be great to incorporate in my shoulder days!! Thanks you are a true inspiration!! Turning 50 this year and this competition is on my “Bucket list”.Log in to reply
far out…. i did the incline lateral raises and behind the head press today. wow oh wow do I feel it. GREAT moves!
Thank you Nicole.Log in to reply
Awesome thank you <3Log in to reply
Great video !! love it thanks Nicole!!Log in to reply
This was a super great video, thank you for this one! Can you explain what is the difference between the leaning away lateral vs the incline lateral? Obviously one is leaning downward so the ROM is greater and the other there is gravity coming into play. But would both of these work the medial delt primarily? Same angle just a different variation? They both look great, thank you again. Ps- Can you puh-lease tell me what brand those pants are? Your legs are rockin them Nicole! 🙂Log in to reply
Yes both work the medial delt- different variations.Log in to reply
Pants….I believe Nike lol Thank you 🙂
Hi Nicole, at the moment when doing shoulders I cannot do any movement over my head like shoulder presses as my arm hurts but all other shoulder exercises are fine as long as my arms do not go over my shoulders. it is only my left side that hurts. Have you got any ideas on some exercises or stretches that I should incorporate into my training session to help this problem. ThankyouLog in to reply
Have you gone to the doc to check it out?Log in to reply
Oh great! Will add some of these in next time,thank you!Log in to reply
Nicole, Question about the leaning lat raise, incline lay and the behind the back lat raise, do you recommend it to not to do those three exercise in one workout?Log in to reply
Thank you Nicole! Love this video:)Log in to reply
I’ve had shoulder surgery in both shoulders and no matter what I do, my shoulders are weak. They have always been weak. I’m fairly muscular but I still have trouble developing the shoulders. On cable lateral raises, I can’t seem to do the lightest weight, whereas with shoulder press I can do 25-30 lbs. I also struggle with the butterfly press machine. What can I do? It seems that I need to target that specific part of the shoulder? Thank youLog in to reply
Really enjoyed this video!! Exactly what I need to complete that roundness! And I totally agree with everything you said at the end – not that my friends believe me! LolLog in to reply
Wow that video was amazing I was looking for different lateral raise moves. Thank you sooooo much Nicole you are an inspiration to me and others.Log in to reply
Love this! I’m going to try these! Thanks!Log in to reply
