4 Exercises to Look Amazing in Your Wedding Dress

Created (and modeled) by ChaiseFitness co-founder Rachel Piskin, here are some key moves she used before her own recent wedding.


Banded Plies:

1. Take a low or medium-resistance exercise band and fold it in half, holding one end in each hand. Stand with feet wider than shoulder width, with toes and legs turned out. Extend arms straight out in front of you at shoulder level.

2. Bend your knees as you extend your arms wide, keeping arms straight, and stretching the band as you go. Return to starting position. Do 2 sets of 20 reps. Focus on keeping shoulders down and your core engaged. “This move targets arms, plus glutes and thighs,” Piskin says.

Added challenge: “Try raising your heels when you are in the bent-knee position,” suggests Piskin.
