wednesday workout: for the backless dress

Ooops!  Almost forgot to post this weeks workout tip!!  (Better late than never.) Fitness expert, Cindy Sites, founder of the Figure Method and owner of Go Figure Studio.  She has graciously sent over a few great work out tips targeting specific areas that brides ask her about the most....I will be highlighting different tips each week for the next few weeks.

  • For the dramatic backless dress…
    • TRY THIS: Rhomboid Press: The rhomboid muscles make up a large part of the upper back and shoulders. They create that sexy, toned look that begs for a show-stopping backless dress. 
      •  Instructions:  Stand in front of a mirror, earlobes over shoulders, shoulders over hips, and hips over feet. With a 3-pound weight in each hand, raise arms out to the side in line with shoulders, then bend to create an L-shape (as though you’re framing yourself in a window).  Begin to press arms back, maintaining the shape of your arms, and squeeze shoulder blades together.  Keep pressing back and hold for 20 reps.  Rest and repeat once more.
