Whether you’re going strapless or backless, today’s quick wedding arm workout is just what you need to tone those beautiful bridal arms.
In this 5 minute sequence you will isolate the muscles of the upper arm, and mid- and upper-back, using light weights to sculpt and tone. This series is an adaptation from the Pilates reformer sequence Seated Arms Facing Front and is one that I do for myself, and with my clients, on a weekly basis.
Why You Want This
From walking down the aisle to throwing your bouquet and dancing the night away your arms will be at the center of attention and featured in almost every photo. Let’s get those limbs wedding ready.
Why You Need This
These isolated movements allow you to focus on strengthening specific upper arm muscles, such as the biceps, triceps and deltoids, and the mid-back.
I want you to pay attention to maintaining an upright spine and keeping your shoulders down away from your ears. Engaging your core muscles, stabilizing your shoulders and lengthening your spine, even during arm work, is going to improve your bridal posture out of sight.
Don’t round the shoulders forward during this series. As the arms comes together in front the body gently squeeze and stabilize the muscles of the mid- and upper-back to keep your chest broad.
How To Get Your Fiancé On Board
Any work that focuses on core control, stabilization and activates smaller muscles are great for men who tend to prioritize big movements with heavy weights. Probably don’t give him the pink weights though …
What To Do Next
Grab a pair of light weights and press play. You can do this arm series three times per week, at the end of any other workout, or on its own.
