DAYS UNTIL THE WEDDING: 128
Days until the engagement party: 1
The mini big day is mere hours away. In a couple of hours, I’ll be on a flight to Florida, descending into what I’ve fondlydecided to call Wedding 1.0: The Dress Rehearsal. (There’s an engagement ceremony, there’s a first dance, there arecocktails—heck, we could just get married there!)Before I hop on the plane, I’m going to break a sweat with this20-minute workout. It’s my standby when I don’t havetime for a run or can’t get to my beloved Barry’s Bootcamp. Jump, squat, lift, done!
1. Jump rope for 2 minutes.
(I time myself with my iPhone’s stopwatch.)
2. Reverse box lunge.
Grab a set of 10 to 15-pound dumbbells, stand on a 6-inch step or box and step backwardwith your left leg into a lunge. Do 12 reps, switch legs.
3. Goblet squat.
Hold a dumbbell vertically next to your chest, with both hands cupping the dumbbell head. Squat,pause, then come back up. Do 12-15 reps.
4. Jump rope for 2 minutes.5. Hammer curl to press.
Grab a set of 8 to 12-pound dumbbells. Let them hang at arm’s length at your sides, yourpalms facing each other. Curl the dumbbells toward your shoulders. Press the dumbbells above your head until yourarms are straight. Do 12-15 reps.
6. Tricep dips.
Find a step or box and lower yourself into 12-15 tricep dips. Make it more challenging by straighteningyour legs instead of bending your knees.
