Planning • 16th April 2018
Back to posts

It's officially the last week - you made it! Make the most of these last three workouts and really enjoy yourselves. If you fancy continuing for more weeks, feel free to just mix and match the routines from the previous 8 weeks going forwards. 

Here's a little recap on how this all works along with the routine for week 8 below! (If you're new, head over here to start from the beginning).

We've partnered up with the lovely personal trainers at WeGym to bring you 8 weeks of fitness routines you can do with your fiancé to ensure you feel your very best on your wedding day. It's the perfect way to have fun with fitness, keep motivated and spend some quality time together pre-wedding. 

Here's how it works:

The whole thing should only take half an hour out of your day and we recommend doing the routine three times a week. Each week for the next 8 weeks we'll be giving you a fresh and exciting new routine to work on. 

All you need is you, your partner, some tunes and a little bit of space in your home. If you don't have enough room, why not try the local park like us?

Prepare to giggle, have fun and start to collectively feel A-MAZING and pumped for your big day. 

Week 8 Routine

Warm Up Exercise: High Knees + Squat

Alternate one of you holding a squat whilst the other does 8 high knees. Do 12 reps of this exercise. 

 

Exercise 1: Tricep Dips

With one of you taking the squat position, the other needs to face their back to them and place their hands on their knees. Once it position, they will need to do 12 tricep dip reps whilst the other holds the squat for that time.

 

Exercise 2: Leg Raises

With one of you standing up, the other needs to lie down holding onto the others ankles with their legs in the air. The partner standing up will then push the other's legs down for them to then lift back up again. Do this for 12 reps. 

 

Exercise 2: Partner Jump Squat

Facing each other but slightly apart, jump down into a squat and then out into a press up and back up again. Jump sideways into the spot your partner was previously and repeat. Do 12 reps of this exercise.  

Exercise 3: Squat Walks Side to Side

Facing each other but a little distance apart, get into a squat position and walk in a crab-like fashion towards each other and then apart again. Repeat for 12 reps. 

 

Exercise 4: Tricep Dips

With one of you taking the squat position, the other needs to face their back to them and place their hands on their knees. Once it position, they will need to do 12 tricep dip reps whilst the other holds the squat for that time.

 

And that's it! Once you've done this routine three times this week, you've officially completed the regime! You should be feeling fit, glowing and so ready for your big day now! 

We'd love to hear from you on how you found the whole process at rosie@weddingplanner.co.uk along with any photos of you in action!
