Hey, ladies! Looking to get fit and fabulous for wedding season? Whether you’ll be walking down the aisle or attending as a guest, we’ve got something special for you. We teamed up with LIT (low-impact training) Method to bring you a great way to prepare for the celebration. Co-founder, Taylor Gainor (who recently got engaged herself!), has pulled some of her best lengthening and toning moves so you can feel amazing in that dress. The following exercises use two pieces of apparatus that make LIT Method especially unique—a water rower and various resistance bands—and we’ve also included exercises that require only a yoga mat. Are you ready to get LIT?


Side Row

Side Row
Grip the handle with your right palm facing down and your left palm facing up. As you push through your heels, pull the handle towards your right hip, twisting your midsection. Perform 15 reps before switching your grip and repeating on the left. Muscles targeted: obliques

Lateral Lunge

Lateral Lunge
Start standing, both legs straight, with your right foot against the end of the rower and your left foot on the seat. Clasp your hands in front of your chest. Bending your right leg, sit back and slide into a deep lunge. Hold for a couple of seconds before returning to standing. Complete 15 reps per side, then repeat three times. Muscles targeted: quads, glutes, inner thighs

Reverse Lunge

Reverse Lunge
Similar to the previous exercise, start standing with your left foot beside the rower and your right foot on the seat. Bend your left leg and slide your right foot back, keeping it elongated. Hold for a couple of seconds before returning to standing. Complete 15 reps per side, then repeat three times. Muscles targeted: quads, glutes


Chest Press in Lunge Position

Chest Press in Lunge Position
Start with your right foot forward and the handles at chest-height. Hold the lunge as you push downward to get your arms fully extended, and then bend your arms to return the handles to chest-height. Complete 15 reps, and then switch your legs to hold the opposite lunge and press for another 15 reps. Repeat three times. Muscles targeted: quads, chest, core

Rear Delt Fly

Rear Delt Fly
Start with your feet wide and facing the wall this time. As you squat, retract your shoulders and pull your arms back, while keeping your elbows in line with the handles. Return to standing. Complete two sets of 20 reps. For an extra challenge, start on your toes and keep your heels off the ground as you squat. Muscles targeted: upper back, rhomboids, shoulders, quads


Isometric Side Plank with Leg Lift

Isometric Side Plank with Leg Lift
Prop yourself up on your left elbow, lifting your right hip upwards while extending your right arm. Then, lift your right leg and hold for 30 seconds. Gradually add seconds as you become stronger, and don’t forget to do the other side! For an extra challenge, prop yourself up on your hand. Muscles targeted: obliques, quads, shoulders

Bicycle Crunches

Bicycle Crunches
Start on your back with your hands behind your head and knees tucked into your chest. Extend your right leg while twisting your upper body to the left, touching your right elbow to your left knee. Then, extend your left leg while twisting your upper body to the right, touching your left elbow to your right knee. Complete 15 reps per side. Muscles targeted: abs, obliques
