Tips for Getting Toned Arms for Your Wedding Day

From confirming the guest list to adding the finishing touches to the center pieces just about every bride is also preoccupied with how they will look in their wedding dress. Many of the popular wedding dresses reveal the arms and back so it's ideal to have this part of your body nicely toned to avoid unsightly back fat or jiggle.

Jumping on the bandwagon of fad diets in order to achieve a quick fix is not the way to go! To accomplish your fitness goals and not be rushed you will want to begin your workout regime ideally 6 months before the wedding day if not before.  This is the perfect way to pace yourself and avoid potential injury at the same time. Keep in mind this goes hand and hand with a healthy diet and a significant amount of water daily.

Below you will find a few moves you can do at home or at the gym to work towards the arms of your dreams. You will want to practice these moves at least 3 times a week with a rest day in between.
For example alternate between legs and arms during the week, this gives the muscles time to repair themselves.  

What you will need:

Wood Chopper:  

This workout will concentrate on your upper and lower body, ideal for total body toning.  While standing in squat position hold the medicine ball close to your body with both hands at chest level.  Slowly lower your body into a squat position while dropping the medicine ball at an angle to one side of the body.  When returning to standing position lift the ball close to your shoulders opposite of the angle you originally lowered the ball while in a squat position. The workout should look as though you are chopping a block of wood with an axe.
This should be done for 8 reps on each side.
Suggested weight: 6-8lb medicine ball.

Tricep Kickback:

Hold a dumbbell in the right hand. Bend at the hips until your body is almost parallel with the floor.  Bring your elbows to your ribs and then straighten your forearm back and return to the starting point, that makes one rep.  
Do this for 15 reps, repeat on the left side.
Suggested weight: light to medium.

Squat Shoulder Press:

Hold a set of dumbbells at shoulder height, elbows bent facing you. Perform a shallow squat (make sure your knees do not surpass your toes). When returning to starting position push the weights overhead to complete one rep.
Do this for 8 reps for a set of 3.
Suggested weight: light to medium.

Hand Walk Outs with a Push-Up:

Standing with your feet shoulder width apart walk your hands outward into push-up position and perform one push-up.  Walk your hands back in until you are back in starting position standing up, that is one rep.
Repeat for 15-20 reps.
No weights needed

Bent-Over Row:

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart keeping your knees slightly bent, bend forward from the hips with a a pair of dumbbells in each hand. Your chest should be parallel to the floor. Arms should be straight with dumbbells aligned with your shoulders. Start by pulling the weights up squeezing your shoulder blades together. Pause then return to starting position to complete one rep.
Do this for 15-20 reps
Suggested weight: medium to heavy.

Standing Pull Up with Kettlebell:

Standing with your feet hip-width apart hold the kettlebell with both hands.  Slowly raise the kettlebell up towards your chest keeping your elbows pointed outward. Lower the weight to starting point to complete one rep.
