Must-Have At Home Workout Equipment

Each week I've been sharing with you a new bridal workout to help you get in great shape for your big day. Some of my favorites include this outer thigh workout and this full body workout for brides.

I try to make every exercise series quick — because I know that planning a wedding leaves you crunched for time — and simple to do at home. 

All you need for an effective at-home workout routine is a couple of pieces of equipment, to provide resistance, help with flexibility, and, basically, just to keep things interesting.

In case you're not already equipped, I've made a simple check list of the key pieces that I use all. the. time. 

See you next week for another bridalicious sweat-sesh!

  7 Minute Arm + Abs Workout

I'm spending a couple of orkouts focusin on common trouble areas, such as the triceps, abs, and inner and outer thighs, to help you feel wedding ready.

efore we dive in to today's workout, here' what recommend for your overall bridal workout routine:

2 x  full body workouts each week,
2 x cardio workouts each week (steady state or sprint),
1 - 2 x sculpting workouts each week,
Plus one day that's completely for rest. 

his week's arms and abs workout falls into that sculpting category. You can do it once, in addition to other exercises, or repeat the whole sequence three times through for a full workout. 

Come on over to Mind Body Bride and press play on the latest video that will help you feel bridalicious in no time!

With Love,
