Get Wedding-Ready With This Full-Body Toning Workout

Q: Help! I need a quick workout thatll tone me up in time for my wedding next month.

A: This high-intensity workout comes from fitness-DVD maven Jari Love, a Calgary, Alberta–based personal trainer and exercise expert for over 20 years.

Love created this low-weight, high-rep routine from her Ripped DVD series. After each move, do 1 minute of jumping jacks or running in place to keep your heart rate up and maximize calorie burn (increase to 2 minutes as you get stronger). Do this 15- to 20- minute workout once or twice a week, and youll make it to the alter in fine form.

Trainer tip (for all three moves): If you have back or knee problems, stick with 3-pound weights and dont lower yourself fully into the squats or lunges. Also, be sure to keep your abs tight.
