Q: I am getting married in six weeks. I am not in bad shape, but I don’t exercise too much and I want to be in good shape so I can dance all night for my wedding. I could also lose just a few pounds as my dress is a tiny bit tight. What would you recommend for me?
A: We hear this from quite a few brides that want to squeeze into a dress that makes them look perfect. You have plenty of time. There are a few things that you want to work on. First, you want to do consistent cardio workouts from now until the big day. This can be on a treadmill, exercise bike, or a jog outside, or some of the Crossfit workouts that we will show you here. You should do any of these at least 3 times a week for 30 min, and make sure you break a sweat, and your heart rate increases appropriately. A Crossfit type of workout will accomplish the cardio, while working out certain muscle groups. For brides to be, you want to work your core muscle groups – belly, butt and legs. This is a video that is a great workout for brides-to-be.
