You’ve made it to week four of the wedding fitness plan! Let’s have a good strong week to finish off the month. This week the focus is on combination exercises. Each week, the level of difficulty of the exercises or movements gets a little harder and a little more advanced. Stay consistent, you will eventually get in a routine and everything will just come naturally.
Wedding Season Week 4:
“A strong outside strengthens the inside” (Selene Yeager)
Tip: Focus on inches lost instead of weight lost. I understand that this is a very touchy subject, but you will find it more motivating if you keep track of how you feel and the inches lost. When you exercise, your body retains water (fluids) and the scale does you no justice. I recommend measuring your biceps, chest, waist, hips, quad, and calf; just the right side of your body though. By only measuring one side, you can more accurately track your progress. Measure weekly and track your progress.
Week 4 Fitness Plan: This week’s emphasis is on combination exercises. Combination exercises are referred to as performing multiple exercises at one time. For example, performing a squat and shoulder press at the same time. This really increases the heart rate and helps shed inches quicker than anything. The main goal of a combination exercise is to keep the heart rate up the entire time, which destroys calories. It is also great for developing coordination, balance and stability, and strength and endurance. Remember to get your 30-60 minutes of cardio in as well. Good Luck!!
