Are you engaged like stars Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Aniston? If so, youre probably looking for a celebrity caliber workout thatll get you wedding dress ready fast! We spoke to a fitness expert who shares exactly how you can get your best body for your dream day!

Jennifer Aniston[1], Miley Cyrus[2] and Angelina Jolie[3] are sure to look stunning on their wedding day. Not all of us can work with celebrity trainers daily, but weve got the next best thing. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Personal Trainer, nutrition consultant, group fitness instructor and founder of the Burn method[4] Lisa Corsello, who is sharing her top tips for brides-to-be so you can get fit (even if you only have three weeks before the wedding)!

Wedding Dress Workout Plan Get Toned In Just Three Weeks

Check out these top weight loss tips from Lisa:

Wedding gowns, especially popular during summer celebrations, often include strapless and sleeveless styles. More often, I see brides who really want to try to tighten and tone their arms. The best areas to target will be the biceps and shoulders.

Biceps: Target the entire bicep by changing the way you rotate the weights as you lower and lift. Begin with basic bicep curls with your elbows in and palms facing up. Repeat 20 times. Make sure you arent using your wrists to pull the weights up. Continue to do your bicep curls but slowly begin to rotate so that you begin the curl with your palms facing each other and halfway up, gently rotate the weights so that your palms face up. As you lower, reverse the rotation. Repeat 20 times. Complete the set by doing 20 hammer curls, with palms facing each other the entire time.

Shoulders:  Begin with arms down, palms facing the thighs (weights hovering about one inch in front of thighs). Slowly raise the arms up to shoulder height and lower stopping just before weights touch the thighs. Repeat 15-20 times. Continue to raise arms but slowly rotate the palms out with your thumbs up and pinkies down, palms facing one another. Make sure not to use the wrists or shrug the shoulders. Repeat 15-20 times. Just like the bicep set, finish with both palms facing each other and repeat 15-20 times.

Best Exercises For Toning Arms For Sexy, Strapless Gowns

For strapless or low v-cut gowns, brides should focus on targeting their chest and triceps.

Chest/Triceps:  Push-ups can be done anywhere and, if done correctly, can tone the chest, triceps, and even the abs. Begin with hands slightly wider than shoulders, fingers spread evenly on the ground. On the knees or toes, push-ups are easy to modify. Make sure the shoulders are above the hands so that as you lower, your elbows bend out at 90 degrees. Lower until youre about 2 inches from the ground, exhale, draw the belly button towards the spine, and push back up to starting position. Do as many as you can. Make sure to lead with your chest, rather than with your forehead, and keep your abs engaged. When your form begins to suffer, take a break and then repeat when youre ready. For the next set, bring your hands shoulder width apart and lower your body, keeping your elbows close to your sides. Aim to actually feel your elbows skim your sides as you lower down and up. This should feel more challenging than traditional push-ups because your triceps (smaller muscles) are being targeted. Repeat both sets 3-4 times with plenty of breaks in between to avoid wrist strain.

Best Exercises For Mermaid & Trumpet Silhouette Bridal Gowns

Brides who plan on wearing a slim-fitted, silhouette-style gown on their big day will want to focus on tightening their midsection. Abs and upper body exercises are key to looking perfect in these types of gowns.

Core and Upper Body: Plank-ups are very challenging, but theyre worth it! Begin in a basic plank position making sure that your hands are firmly planted on the ground and your shoulders are directly above the hands. Keep your abs engaged and try to think about the back of your neck getting longer to avoid neck strain. Hold the position for 10 seconds. Slowly, without placing your knees on the ground, lower your body down one elbow at a time starting with your right arm. You should now be in a forearm or dolphin plank. Hold for 10 seconds, and then raise your body up by placing your right hand on the ground. Remember to keep your abs engaged, as this is still a plank. Repeat the first 2 steps, leading with the left hand.

Next, rotate to the side so youre in a side plank on your right forearm (gives your wrists a break and focuses on obliques). Hold for 30 seconds. Come back to a forearm plank facing the floor, tighten the core, and rotate to the left so that youre now in a forearm plank on your left side. Be sure that your shoulder is directly over your elbow and that your hips are stacked. Hold for 30 seconds.

Focus on these target areas 3-4 weeks prior to the wedding, and look flawless as you take that special walk down the aisle.

      Yes,visit the following sites for fitness.You may not need a full-fledged diet right now, but you can still incorporate some slim-down strategies into your daily life.

      Eat breakfast. Studies show that eating breakfast is associated with keeping weight off once you’ve lost it.

      Fill up on low-cal foods. Start every meal with the items on your plate that are lowest in calories. By the time you get to the other foods, you won’t be so hungry, possibly decreasing your total intake.

      Begin with soup. Starting lunch or dinner with a broth-based, vegetable-filled soup will curb hunger so you’ll be less tempted to eat higher-calorie foods.

      Arrive fashionably late. Without as much time near the buffet table at parties, you’ll eat less.

      Divide your lunch. Afternoon snacker? Cut your lunch in half: have part at mealtime and the other half later in the afternoon.

      Swap mustard for mayo. A tablespoon of mayonnaise has 100 calories, compared with 10 calories for a tablespoon of yellow mustard.

      Duration of Exercise
      You may not be exercising long enough. The rule of thumb is cardio for 30 minutes, three times per week. If you really want to reach your goal, try five 45-minute cardio workouts per week. That sounds like a lot of exercise, but remember this is in order to meet your goal, not necessarily maintain it.

      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!

    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.

      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
