Wedding Workout For a Backless Gown

Wedding Workout: Open Back Dress Means Lat Pulldowns

To help celebrate wedding season, FitSugar reader TiVo shared with us how she got in shape for her big day.

I did a lot of running and strength training for my wedding. In order to really hit it hard and fine-tune all the details, I did a pretty intense David Kirsch circuit for two weeks before the big day. I usually can't run too far or too often because of my knees, but I still ran quite a bit because I knew I was going to be giving my poor stiff knees a week off during the honeymoon.

New brides, pay attention! All week long we'll be bringing you tips on how to prepare your body for the big day. But we want to hear what you've been doing to stay in shape too. Head over to the FitSugar Community and post your wedding workout tips, or, if you're already hitched, how did you get healthy for your big day?

I don't have a backless or strapless dress for my upcoming wedding, but I still want to bit fit, toned, and healthy. A lean back would be great, because a chunky back in my dress would show. ^_^

Maybe it's where I live [MN], but we don't really do this.... Out of most of the weddings I've gone to since graduating high school, the brides are, well, chunky. Whatever works I guess.

A friend and I are doing the P90X lean routine. If it wasn't for her I would not be waking up at 5:40 a.m. and getting a good solid workout in before my day gets sidetracked by life. After 11 weeks you'd think I'm a morning person...but not yet. We aren't sure what we are going to do once we are done(it's 13 weeks), but I do see a difference in the tone of my arms and legs. I think I might do the classic version of the workout next!

I think we all go through a fitness induced craze to look fantastic in our wedding dress. I know I did.
