The 10 Minute Buff Bride Arm Workout

The 10-minute Buff Bride Arm Workout

Wearing a strapless dress for your wedding or any occasion coming up soon? Check out this quick and effective 10 minute arm workout that will have your arms looking sexier than ever!

This weekend I am going to one of my dear cousins wedding. I am SO excited for this event…I am literally counting down the hours. ALL of my amazing girls cousins who are like sisters to me will be there and there will be lots of food, fun, laughs and just extreme happiness. 

Preparing for her wedding brought me back to the borderline extreme fitness measures I took when I was getting ready for the big day 9 years ago. I exercised twice a day, ate clean and got to my lowest weight in my adulthood. 

I vividly remember my arms being the main focus of my workouts. Since my dress was a strapless princess ball gown, I knew all eyes would be on the guns!

Today I’m sharing The 10-minute Buff Bride Arm Workout. The awesome peeps over at Bowflex shared some amazing gifs that demonstrate exactly how to do the moves. Enjoy!


Exercise physiologist and Bowflex Fitness Advisor Tom Holland developed the following strength training workout for brides who are ready to get toned before the big day. Holland recommends completing the above moves in 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions for a circuit-style workout. For maximum results, complete the workout three times each week on non-consecutive days. Be sure to use weights that are more challenging for the last few repetitions.

This is actually pretty similar to what I do on my upper body days when I don't have much time to workout! Hits all the main upper body parts and doesn't take too much time.

Congratulations to your cousin on her wedding! We have a wedding to go to this fall and I definitely need to step up the exercise game. Tricep kickbacks and chair dips are great for the arms.

You can boost fat loss and accelerate lean muscle definition in as little as 6 weeks if you try to

1. Perform fasted cardio on an empty stomach in the morning before starting your workday.

2. Wait 1 hour after completing fasted cardio and post-workout cardio before drinking anything or eating food so you burn stored bodyfat without doing extra work.

3. Cut food off 2-3 hours before bed.

And you'll notice increased lean muscle growth too if you do at least between 5 to 10 minutes of post-workout cardio 3x weekly after bicep exercises. Hope this helps. :-)

Thanks, Nellie! I'm totally obsessed with toning my arms. I just bought weights but they're only 2-3 pounds, because I have to start small I think.
