For achieving toned torso, upper and lower back, and biceps…
It is quite stressful to be a bride and the least you want on your big is to not look and feel fantastic. What you need to do is choose the right kind of workout according to your wedding ensemble, eat well and rest properly to be your glowing best on that special day. Also, while a little ounce of extra fat will not make much of a difference, it is important to be in proper shape, as closest as you can get. You obviously wouldn’t want to regret looking at your plumper self in the wedding album and sighing if only you had made an effort. Follow our pre-wedding workout plan guide and leave no rooms to repent.
- For a sleek torso: Do twists. Stand with your knees slightly bent and legs hip-width apart. Squeeze in your thigh muscles and tuck in your tummy. Keep your hands on your head, join your feet fingers together and slowly turn from one side to the other, without moving the lower body. Do it for 10 minutes. Do not increase your speed and do only slow movements for best results.
For crunches, stand with slightly bent knees and legs hip-width apart. Tuck in your abs and pull your feet fingers together. Lift your left knee towards the left arm and bring your elbow down to touch it. Hold and then return to the first position. Repeat with the right knee. Do it for 15-20 minutes.
- Upper and lower back workouts: Stand with your right side next to a couch or coffee table. Put your right leg on the couch and bend your left knee. Keep your torso parallel to the floor and lift a dumbbell with your left hand, with your pam facing the thigh. Slowly pull the dumbbell up and down. You should feel a contraction in your back. Repeat with the left leg on the couch. Do it for 20 minutes.
Lie flat on the floor with knees slightly bent and feet facing ahead. Stretch your hands upwards as you make a 90 degree angle with your torso. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and slowly take your hands behind your head, as far as possible. When you go back, you should feel a contraction on your upper back and while you come to the original position, squeeze your back muscles. Do it for 10 to 15 minutes.
- For toned biceps and triceps: For toned bicep, stand with your knees slightly bent and legs hip-width apart. Hold a dumbbell each in your hands and while keeping your elbow close to the waist line, slowly curl the dumbbells towards your shoulders. Do it for 10 minutes.
For toned triceps, sit straight on a sturdy chair without wheels. Keeping your elbows straight, place your hands right next to you on the chair with the fingers facing forward. Now slowly slide down the chair, keeping your hands where they were. Bend your elbows so that your arms become parallel to the floor and slight further ahead until your hips are away from the edge of the chair. Using your arms, pull up to the point when your arms are straight. Repeat the dips for 15 minutes.
