The Wedding Dress Workout

In our wedding dress workout we look at each of the four problem areas – stomach, bottom, arms and thighs – highlighting the type of toning exercises you need to work into your daily routine plus some extra training tips to complement your toning workouts. Its time to target those wobbly bits and watch your body transform into the perfect frame for your wedding dress.

Wobbly stomach

If you’re looking to get a slim waist and a set of killer abs, sit ups and crunches immediately come to mind. But exercises for your lower abs should be included too. Have a go at leg-only v-sits (sit on the floor with your legs elevated and alternately bend and straighten your knees). To further train your core, use a stability ball to carry out your ab exercises this will train the deeper muscles of your abdomen too which will lead to all-over better posture.

Saggy, flabby rear

For that perfect peachy rear youll need to be working all the glute muscles. There are many killer techniques that will set you on your way to a pert behind; squats, lunges, side leg lifts as well as running, stepping or skipping will all contribute to your J-Lo butt. Bootylicious! One of the best ways to fit in a daily rear toning exercise is to take the stairs go for two at a time concentrating on squeezing the cheeks as you climb. Now theres no excuse to take the lift.

Flabby arms

Dont shy away from sleeveless wedding dresses as you can banish those bingo wings by targeting your biceps, triceps and shoulders to get the sexy toned arms you desire. Tricep dips are one of the best exercises to tone the under-arm wobble and good old fashioned press ups are great for targeting shoulders and the chest. Combine with cardiovascular exercise like boxercise or kickboxing and youll have slender, strong arms.

Thunder thighs

Want sleeker hips and streamlined, wobble-free thighs that dont meet in the middle? Well the good news is that the squats and lunges for your peachy rear will also double up as great thigh trimmers too. But rather than just focusing on the large muscles on the front and back of the thighs (the quads and hamstrings) go for activities that work the hips and inner thighs too. In-line skating is a superb aerobic workout, burning 400 calories an hour, with studies showing that it works some muscles in the legs more effectively than running particularly the inner thighs and hips.

Now you have targetted your problem areas, here are a few training rules and nutrition tips which will complement your workouts and get you closer to the bride-beautiful body.

Top six training and nutrition tips to complement toning workouts

Step up your cardio workouts (running, cycling, walking)

Burn extra calories and ensure your newly honed and toned body isnt buried under a layer of blubber.

Train early

Exercising in the morning kick-starts your metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories) and the benefits can last for up to 15 hours after training.

Up the resistance

As you progress, the addition of hand/leg weights or resistance bands will make toning workouts that little bit tougher but will yield results.

Go natural when eating

Always try and select whole-food choices for meals and snacks. Processed foods are generally low in nutritional quality and high in unwanted calories such as fat and sugar.

Hydrate for exercise

Inadequate hydration often invites false hunger pangs and cravings. Avoid reaching for the cookie jar by drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day.

Go easy on the alcohol

The calories in wine, beer and spirits are stored as body fat if theyre not used at the time of consumption; so reducing your alcohol intake will help with weight loss.

    Is There An Online Site That Gives Free Workout Tips? I’m looking for a site that gives free workout tips and tips on getting abs. I don’t need a so-called “quick trick” that will supposedly get me a six-pack in 2 days. I just want tips on how to work out and what to eat to get in shape.

      If you want to stay in shape, you need to adopt healthy eating habits and make exercise a part of your daily life.

      How to start?

      Choose exercises you enjoy according to your fitness level. Aerobics exercises move the muscles fairly continuously and strengthen the heart and lungs. Examples of such activities are brisk walking, jogging, aerobic dancing, swimming, badminton, cycling and football.

      If you have not exercised for a long time or just started, start slowly and increase gradually over a period of 3 to 6 weeks.

      For those who are above 35 years old, overweight, or have medical problems, you need to check with a medical doctor before you embark on an exercise programme.

      Frequency or How often?

      Exercise for at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week or more

      Intensity and duration?

      Do exercise until you perspire and breathe deeply without getting breathless. You should be able to talk or whistle while exercising.

      Do warm up and stretch for at least 5 minutes before exercise. Also not to forget to cool down and stretch after exercise.

      I saw an interview with Fergie not long ago. She said that using the uphill setting on a treadmill is what gave her her glorious booty. My friend has been doing just this for a few months and i’m already seeing results. It works the thighs and hips too!

      Eat healthy. consume a little more protein (meat) than usual. Work out helps but working out is about your body fat percentage. Eating healthy is the main thing, then work out. Two strengths when combined, result in that figure your looking for. When you work out don’t do the same routine work out everyday. alternate between 3 days and do different things each of the three days. like Monday do crunches, Tuesday sit ups, Wednesday go for a run. then Thursday go back to crunches. You can do more than one thing a day certainly but don’t do the exact same workout everyday. Your body gets use to it. Mix things up. Eat a healthy breakfast. Eggs, bacon, milk, orange juice. that sort of thing. Just combine eating healthy with work out and you should see results in the first few days.

    How Can I Get A Good Source Of Carbohydrates And Proteins, Plus Workout Tips? I am wanting to start working out and getting healthy and gain lean muscle mass but i don’t really know what foods i should eat before and after a workout to get a good serving of protein and carbohydrates. so anyone who is maybe an athlete or just trying to get healthy too share some meal ideas? and maybe a few workout tips? thank you.

    By the way I’m a 19 year old male weighing in at about 164lbs and about 5’7″ if that helps
    Oh and i have access to workout equipment like dumbbells, that machine where you work out your legs by pushing weights with them, (don’t know what its called) treadmills, and those stationary bikes and an elliptical.

      I’ll give you a list of some common foods that are high in complex carbohydrates and take notes because it’s great for you to add them to your meal plan:

      Oatmeal
      Pasta
      Macaroni
      Spaghetti
      Rice
      Potatoes
      Bread
      Home-Made Pizza
      Cereal
      Bran
      Wheat
      Corn
      Yam
      Peas
      Beans
      Lentils
      Vegetables

      The above mentioned foods make your stomach full for a few hours. They make you have a slow digestion. So it’s good for those who want to slow down their metabolism. These foods are also beneficial for those who want to build muscle because they are great sources of energy for your body and muscles.

      Now I’m going to give you a list of foods high in protein that you should make sure you add to your meal plan. These foods are very important to build muscle mass.

      Here is the list:

      Eggs
      Ham
      Sausages (healthy choices)
      Seafood (Fish, Calamari, Octopus, Salmon, etc.)
      Poultry (Chicken, Turkey, etc.)
      Beef
      Pork
      Tofu
      Peanut Butter
      Dairy Products
      Protein Shakes
      Protein Bars
      Liquid Protein

      As you can see there are many sources of proteins. So I recommend that you choose various, not just one.

      Doing combinations of these foods high in complex carbs and proteins will be the best way to create your meal plan.

      Three other foods you might want to add to your meal plan are:

      Ice creams
      Smoothies
      Yogurts

      These 3 are very good and delicious.

      Workout Tips:

      Get your form straight before you go heavy
      Progression is key – Add weight or reps when you can.
      Don’t get greedy – This is a long game. Adding too much too soon can leave you injured
      Eat. Adjust as needed.
      Focus. Gym time is work time. Socialization is fine, but spend time under the bar.
      Don’t buffet train – You don’t need to hit your biceps from 8 different angles, you need to get your primary lifts up.
      Get brutally strong – Your chest isn’t impressed with 15 pound flyes. Get your lifts up and good things will happen.
      Have fun – If you hate your time in the gym, you aren’t likely to make much progress.

      Well the best way to lose weight is to run everyday morning and night or after for hour and of course you wont be able to run the whole 1 hour as your not in shape yet so try to run for 30 minutes or more if you can and then walk for like 10 minutes and then run until you get to an hour and if your finally able to run the whole 1 hour start running for 2 hours

      also start weight lifting as well as muscle burns fat so just get normal 15 lb or lighter if its to heavy and do curls dumbbell presses etc and most important of all do free weights such as push ups and if your unable to do allot of push ups do like 10 rest 10 seconds 10 rest 10 rest until you get to 100 or 200 if you can also get a bar and try to do pull ups front wards and you probably wont be able to so try really hard and go to the top and go down slowly, and you will have to do ab workouts like crunches and raise your legs

      and do a quick warm up and and stretch before you lift and also with running do a quick warm up run like 10 minutes then stretch and start your 1 hour run

      the other most important key fact to weight loss is a big change in your diet which mean more calories out then in so no to any fast food for the rest of your life unless you want be fat the rest of your life, don’t eat any junk foods high in fat like donuts and stuff like that because if your going to be burning like 1000 calories and then eating 3000 calories you wont be losing fat but instead just gaining fat and the only difference will be you will be gaining 10 lbs everyday instead of 5 lbs

      what you should eat is salad fruit vegetables yogurt eat meat but not one in a kfc bucket a kind that homemade eat eggs also good in protein

      follow these steps and i guarantee you of you being fit

      I know this sounds vague, but just use youtube. it’s awesome because you don’t have to buy an expensive dvd or anything and because you can specify exactly what you want to tone. You can search like “inner thigh workout” then choose from a bunch. Same with butt and stomach. There are some great variations. But, don’t expect perfect results from just working out. How you look is mainly due to your diet. Exercise just aids in that and tones you.

      Good luck

      Try counting calories. 2400 is the maximum a person should usually intake per day (and I say usually because there are special occasions like birthdays and weddings where it’s kind of hard to stay under 2400 calories), and eventually (I say eventually because your diet probably gives you 4000-5000 calories right now, that’s what mine was) if you want to lose weight faster stay between 2000-2200 calories. Of course, if you’re diet includes fast food and Starbucks, 2400 is fine. Go to http://www.calorieking.com and look up calorie content of foods you eat, or you can buy their book, which might be handier. Combined with exercise, this is a great way to lose weight and isn’t risky like diet pills or miracle diets.
