It is already been two weeks of the wedding fitness plan and week three is loaded with new exercises, turning our attention to dumbbells. Remember to keep getting plenty of cardiovascular time in as well as a low-fat diet. A combination of cardio, diet, and weight training will help you get the results you want in no time. Stay motivated and dedicated, I promise your hard work will pay off.
Wedding Season Week 3:
“The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.” (unknown)
Tip: When exercising, you should always start with the larger muscle groups first and then work your way to the smaller ones. For example, start with chest and back then move to biceps and triceps; for lower body do a leg press then into leg curls or calf raises. The smaller muscle groups help during the performance of the larger muscle group exercises, thus it is important to not tire them out early in your workout. This helps maximize the results!!
Week 3: Focus is on dumbbells. Dumbbells are more advanced than machines or cables due to the fact that you (the lifter) control every degree of the movement and it is totally up to you to perform the correct technique. Dumbbells are perfect for the gym, the home, or the road. Remember to get your 30-60 minutes of cardio in as well. Good Luck!!
