If you’ve set yourself a target ahead of the big day, whether that’s toning up, losing weight or just feeling a bit healthier, it’s time to start your own bridal bootcamp! Check out the 5 tips below to help with your journey…
No matter how long you’ve got until your big day, there’s always time to make a change. Here we share five top tips from Ben West, co-founder of 360Athletic, to allow you to reach your goals.
Full body training
When it comes to getting results with your training, a full body approach is smarter than focusing on just a single body part. Training your full body more frequently will burn more calories and allow more muscles to be worked over the week. This in turn will allow for greater development and tone all over the body. So, no matter if you want leaner arms or a tighter tummy, train your body from top to bottom each session and see greater results much quicker.
Make smart food choices
What goes on your plate is as important as the training you do in the gym or at home. In order to lose body fat you must train hard and consume less calories than what you are burning. So when it comes to choosing your food go for single ingredient foods, ones you know contain only that ingredient and not much else. Also reduce your portion sizes as this will reduce your calorie intake and help you lose body fat.
Train with intensity
Don’t slack on the hard work when it comes to training. Now’s the time to go big and give it everything. Make sure when you train you give it 100% and leave feeling you couldn’t of given anymore.
Cut back on the alcohol
Leading up to the big day it’s worth limiting the amount of alcohol you consume. Alcohol contains a high amount of calories and simply doing this could make a big impact. If you want to drink go for spirits and soda/tonic rather than beer, wine or cocktails, save all this for your honeymoon.
Set targets and track progress
Set targets and don’t stop until you reach them. You have a deadline so it’s important you set a goal and keep working until you get there. No matter if it’s physical, mental or just for you to feel better – set goals and work towards them each and every day.
