With your back to the crowd for most of your ceremony, you want everyone to notice your nicely sculpted triceps. Tricep dips are the easiest way to tone those arm muscles and you don't even need any equipment to do them. That makes this exercise ideal if you're an on-the-go bride. So, grab a chair or the side of your couch and get to work!

Start in a sitting position with your hands shoulder-width apart on a sturdy chair or bench, fingers pointing forward. Keep your arms mostly straight, with a little bend in them to keep the tension off of your elbows. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your elbows form a 90-degree angle with the floor. Then, push yourself back up to your starting position. This counts as one rep. Aim for three sets of 15 reps.
