The Exercise ONE-MINUTE SQUATS THE EXPERT Paul Califano
THE RESORT The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, Florida You can do squats anywhere, so they’re perfect for busy schedules, says Califano. Squats work thighs, hips, quads and core to not only tone and strengthen, but also burn calories. To get started, do as many squats as you can within one minute.
This number will be the baseline. Then, each day leading up to the wedding, add two more squats, Califano suggests. The benefi t? You’ll lose inches from your legs and waist, and your body will burn more calories.
IN-A-FLASH PUNCHES THE EXPERT Raymand Tan THE RESORT The Palms Turks and Caicos Your shoulders and back are on display in a slinky, beachy wedding gown, so Tan recommends dumbbell punches and weighted-ball raise-and-slams at least fi ve times a week.
Using a 12- to 15-pound medicine ball, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding the ball with both hands above your head. Slam the ball down to the ground, holding on with both hands, and then raise it back above your head. Repeat the move for 30 to 45 seconds.
