6 Month Wedding Workout Plan to Get Your Body in Shape for the Big Day

Planning for your wedding can be a stressful time but it is also packed with excitement as you count down the days. Every bride wants all aspects of her wedding day to be perfect but none more so than how you look in your gorgeous wedding gown and getting into shape is the best way to look your best.

A 6-month wedding workout plan gives you enough time to reach a realistic goal without compromising your health through crash diets and starvation. Every bride is different, some want to shed extra pounds and others just want to tone so it is best to plan accordingly. After all, you want to have reached your goal when you walk down the aisle looking stunning in your wedding dress.

A good exercise regime and nutritious diet is key to your 6-month wedding workout plan.  

The extent of your exercise regime depends on your body and your goal. Remember that your groom loves you as you are so there’s no need for drastic weight loss unless it is in your best health interests. The ultimate goal for this should be to be healthy, confident and comfortable in your wedding gown.

6-months before the big day, prepare yourself with comfortable clothing; running shoes, a mat and 2 or 3-pound weights or resistance bands. According to experts https://www.theknot.com/content/six-month-fitness-makeover, the first month should be spent focusing on engaging in your new workout plan and becoming active. By the second month you will find more of a routine.

The Workout Plan:

Week 1 and 2

Do 20 minutes of cardio exercise about three times a week. Anything that raises the blood pressure and gets your heart racing such as jogging, cycling, aerobics and so on.

Week 3 and 4

Do the same type of cardio exercise but increase the time to around 30 minutes at least three times a week.

Week 5 and 6

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week but add about 10 push ups and stomach crunches to begin toning.

Week 7 and 8

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week and double up the push ups and stomach crunches.

Week 9 and 10

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week as well as the same number of push ups and stomach crunches but include a set of 10 squats.

 

 

Week 11 and 12

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week as well as push ups, stomach crunches, squats and include biceps and triceps curls.

Week 13 and 14

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week as well as push ups, stomach crunches, squats, biceps and triceps curls and begin doing chest presses too.

Week 15 and 16

Do cardio exercise for 40 minutes at least three times a week as well as push ups, stomach crunches, squats, biceps and triceps curls and increase the number of chest presses.

Week 17 and 18

Continue with the same regime but increase or add the particular exercise for a specific area you want to target.

Week 19 and 20

Continue with the same regime but increase or add the particular exercise for a specific area you want to target.

Week 21 to 24

By the last month you should be seeing a huge difference. The entire regime should be continued but if you wish, you can increase the amount of exercise you do as you feel comfortable and confident in your wedding gown.

Embarking on a healthy eating plan is very important. Not only for shedding the pounds and fitting into your wedding dress but for ensuring a healthy glowing skin too. It is best to cut out all processed food, fatty foods, added sugars and sodium. Drink plenty of water and eat fresh fruit, vegetables and protein.

According to nutritionists https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/What-Eat-Week-Before-Your-Wedding-44747746 it is most important to avoid foods and drinks that cause bloating and skin irritations. Even alcohol can cause bloating and redness so should be avoided as much as possible.
