A Workout for Every Wedding Dress Type

If you don’t want to do a whole workout before your wedding day or don’t have the time, you can work out certain body parts that matter most to your wedding dress shape and style. 

So you can either work out your waistline, or your arms and shoulders, or back depending on your wedding dress type.

Glamour Weddings shared these really easy exercise moves for 4 wedding dress shapes:

The Ball Gown: Work Your Waistline

Step 1
Begin on all fours, in a tabletop position. Kick your right leg back.

Step 2
Pull your right leg forward and step up into a lunge position.

Step 3
Straighten your right leg to stand while simultaneously lifting your left leg to activate your core. Repeat 15 times on each side.

The Strapless A-Line Gown: Work Your Upper Body

Step 1

Position yourself on your left side with your left leg bent behind you at a 90-degree angle and your left elbow directly below your left shoulder. Straighten your right leg over your left.

Step 2

Pull yourself into a side plank, supported by your left knee, as you lift your left hip off the ground and raise your right leg and right arm. Move slowly, maintaining tightness in your core. Repeat 15 times on each side.

The Mermaid Gown: Tone Your Curves

Step 1

Get into a push-up position with your hands on either side of an upside-down Bosu Balance Trainer. Kick your right leg straight up behind you.

Step 2

Pull your right knee in toward your chin, then pull it across your chest, keeping your abs tight. Repeat 15 times on each side.

The Low Back Gown: Tighten Your Back Muscles

Step 1

Stand on a Bosu Balance Trainer while holding a dumbbell in each hand. Carefully lean forward and bend your knees slightly, positioning the dumbbells directly in front of your knees.

Step 2

Keeping your core tight and your legs stable, pull your elbows up and behind you as you squeeze your shoulder blades together, bringing the dumbbells toward your hips. Repeat 20 times.
