In preparation for my wedding later this year,
I have been tweaking my usual running routine by adding some upper body moves that will help tone the only area that will be showing outside of my wedding dress.
This is one of the dresses I tried on–I’ve only tried on wedding dresses one time, one day, and walked away with my dress! I am including this picture just for reference. (This is NOT my wedding dress, as I am old fashioned and am keeping that a surprise to most).
My hair covers what I think of as a “problem area,” also called “armpit” fat.
However, I don’t want to rely on my hair covering it up, so I am including some moves before or after my runs to help tone my upper body more.
I do about 3 sets of 15 reps each for each of these moves, with a 25 pound kettle bell:
These exercises, as a whole, target my entire upper body. It gives me some confidence and piece of mind as my wedding approaches that I will look my best, in the upper body, specifically.
I’m so excited to marry my Paul! ♥
