Everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day, but who has time for trips to the gym? Finally, there is an easy-to-follow, no hassle, fitness plan for brides and grooms to ensure they look their best on their wedding days — and it takes just a few minutes, a few days a week.
Perform these four exercises, three non-consecutive days per week one after the other, resting after the last exercise for 90-seconds before attempting your second and then third sets. If you do this consistently up to your wedding day, you will look and feel your very best!
Perform exercises requiring your transverse abdominus (your deepest abdominal muscle) like the abdominal prone hold (1 of over 45 exercises coached on Number One Me) – supporting yourself over the floor from your forearms and toes. Try to hold for 60-seconds, twice, three times per week. Working your interior girdle like this will begin to tighten you up all-over!
Goal: Increase inner core strength (transverse abdominus), pelvic stability, low back strength; mental toughness
Lying face down on ground (prone), support your entire body in this ‘prone’ position hovering your body over the floor supported only from your forearms and toes; DO NOT ALLOW YOUR LOW BACK TO DIP; focus on drawing your belly button in towards your spine; hold this position for up to 60 seconds.
There is no piece of equipment that will tone and shape that lower body like this granddaddy callisthenic.
Goal: Strengthen the low-body (hips, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, ankles); to improve balance
Standing with feet parallel and with both arms relaxed at sides; looking up to where the wall meets the ceiling. Inhale while stepping the right foot forward approximately 3 feet making sure the right heel touches the floor first. Your right thigh should be parallel to the floor. Do not allow the left knee to rest on the floor your right knee to extend over your toes. Exhale while pushing the right foot from the floor, bringing both arms overhead and returning to your starting position. Repeat to left leg. Repeat for 15 repetitions (1 repetition for each side = 1 full repetition).
If you need to start from your knees and work to your toes. Push-ups will not only develop your triceps and make those shoulders look great in your strapless; you’ll also effectively work that transverse abdominus again!
Goal: Strengthen the chest (pectorals), shoulders (deltoids), upper arm (triceps); increase pelvic stability (transverse abdominus)
From the prone (face down) position on the floor; maintain a neutral spine with your head up supporting your body from your hands with extended arms under chest and on feet (toes) (Plank position). Inhale while lowering the body until upper arms are parallel to floor and then exhale while returning to start (maintaining slight flex in both elbows). Continue for 15-repetitions.
