Wedding Fit Full Body Workout
Everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day. You want your dress/suit tailored to fit the best version of yourself. The key zones to target on your body are your shoulders, chest and arms, mid-section and of course the booty.
Lets set a fitness plan, shall we? For the next month, the following eight exercises will be your WeddingFit routine and performed three to four times per week. Before you begin, make sure to take a selfie and record your measurements in your WeddingFit Notebook.
Perform each exercise for 50 seconds and give yourself a 10 second recovery before you move on to your next exercise. After you completed your first round, jump on the treadmill for 5 minutes (or other form of cardio) and then begin the next round. You will repeat this three times.
Lunge forward with your right thigh parallel to the floor. Swinging your arms for balance and momentum, jump up explosively and switch legs, landing in a lunge with your left foot forward.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep.
Tricep Push Up
Get in plank position with your hands shoulder-width apart. Lower your chest toward the floor while keeping your upper arms parallel to your sides and your elbows pointing straight back. Push back up to start.
Walk the Plank
Get in plank position and step your elbows, right then left, to the floor directly where your hands were. Step back up on to your hands
Modified Diamond Push Up
Get in modified plank position (on knees). Position your hands together so that your index fingers and thumbs make a diamond. Lower your chest down towards your hands and push back up.
Lay flat on your back with your arms next to your sides. Keeping your legs straight, raise your feet up off the ground and directly over your hips and then control them back down without touching the ground. Make sure to keep your back pressed against the ground while repeating this leg raise.
Side Plank (25s. each side)
Lift your body off the ground and balance on one forearm and the side of your foot. Contract your abdominals and relax your shoulders. No movement, just hold that position and breathe.
Get in plank position. Engage your core and lift one knee in towards your opposite elbow. Place your foot back where it started and bring in your other knee
