The best way to get your body toned for the big day? Circuit training! In this full-body workout, you'll complete a series of moves that target multiple areas at once. "It's efficient and effective, plus it's de-stressing," says New York City celebrity trainer David Kirsch. To get gown ready, do the routine below three to four days a week, two or three times each day.
Move 1: Reverse Lunge with Arms Overhead
Target zones: Glutes, Inner Thighs, Core, Arms
Repetitions: 15 on each leg
Start with your feet together, shoulder-width apart, holding a 5-pound dumbbell in your right hand. Extending the dumbbell straight overhead, step back with your right leg into a lunge position. Hold for a beat, and return to standing position. Switch arms and legs, and repeat.
Move 2: Plie Toe Squats with Medicine Ball Front Raises
Target zones: Inner Thighs, Glutes, Arms, Shoulders
Start in a wide stance, with your knees and feet turned outward 45 degrees, holding a 4 to 6 pound medicine ball. Lower into a squat position, while simultaneously lifting your heels, shifting your weight onto your toes, and extending your arms straight out in front of your body. Lower your arms and heels and return to a standing position. (That's one rep.) Repeat.

Move 3: Burpee to Spiderman Pushup
Target zones: Legs, Arms, Back, Core
Start upright, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Place your hands flat on the ground, bend your knees, and shoot your legs out into a plank position. While holding the plank, bring your right knee to your right elbow, then return to the plank position. Jump up to standing position. Complete the rep by repeating with your left side. Then, continue alternating.
Move 4: Single Leg Dead Lifts with Side Laterals
Target zones: Arms, Shoulders, Hamstrings, Inner Thighs
Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, and holding a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand. Begin to balance on one leg, then bend at your hips, extending your opposite leg behind you. Continue lowering your upper body until it is parallel to the ground. At the same time you are lowering, lift both arms out to the sides, until your elbows are shoulder height. Lower your leg and repeat on each leg.
