Workouts For The Big Day

I know, I know you've probably have heard this a million times, but working out is such a good way to prepare yourself for your big day (or even just your life in general). Let's face it, you have been talking to professional hair stylist and planners. You've probably spent more time at a spa in six months than you have in a year. Exercising not only is a great way to sculpt that body and get the physique you want but also a great way to relax your mind from the stress. 

Not sure what workouts to start with? After doing some careful research, www.shape.com (as well as a few other sites) has tips on what workouts work best to sculpt your arms, legs, and core.

Other Tips:

Water- it does depend on how much you weigh - for example, someone who weighs an average of 150lb should drink between 75 a 150oz. And if you work out you must always drink more to stay hydrated. Water is your friend it keeps you hydrated and gives you beautiful skin. 

Stretch- Please please please do not forget to stretch before and after you work out. It helps keep your muscles from being sore, keeps your muscles flexible and helps with joint motion. 

Take a break in between- It is good to listen to your body. Take a day in between workouts to relax and let your body rejuvenate.
