Here are some tips on how future brides can get in shape for the big day.
Cynthia Conde, creator of the Bridal Bootcamp Challenge, has helped countless brides tone-up for their wedding day. Here are some tips from Conde on how future brides can get in shape for the big day.
7 Day Detox - The main goal here is to rid yourself of an overdependence of refined foods, such as white bread, pastas and cookies, that cause weight gain. Refrain from any cardio or strength training during this week.
Setting a Nutrition Program - After your 7 Day Detox. Determine your body's Energy Needs. Make sure you are eating five small balanced meals spread evenly throughout the day.
Bootcamp Workout - Training should be hard, fast and intense. Incorporate core workouts, strength training and military drills with cardiovascular workouts four days per week. Your strength training workout should last 20 minutes and your cardio should be 35 minutes. You can be in and out of the gym in less than an hour. Avoid injury by stretching before and after each workout session.
Measuring your progress - Be sure to weigh yourself every two weeks; measure your body fat percentage and girth every three weeks. If there is no measurable change, re-examine your food or exercise program. There may be a need for an adjustment.
De-Stress - set small fitness goals and treat yourself to something special, like a massage, once you have reached your goals.
