Groom Advisor

Not only does your bride want to look good on the big day, but she also wants you to look good next to her. Picking a tux style is not the only styling that needs to be done. Depending on your normal exercise routine – or lack thereof – you may need to kick it up a notch or get creative. The Groom Advisor offers some tips to either start a workout or find new ways to ensure you're not doing bicep curls with the TV remote.

Tip #1
Keep working out. Planning is going to get hectic. Just because you can't keep to your normal routine doesn't mean you should quit cold turkey. Even just 20 minutes, three times a week will do. Take a quick jog during you lunch break if you can or work out right when you get home before dinner.

Tip #2
If you're one of those guys that simply lacks the will power to get to the gym by yourself, go on a recruiting mission starting with your best man. Find a friend that's self motivated enough to share some motivation with you.

Tip #3
Spot reducing doesn't work, so just doing crunches to lose the beer gut won't cut it. If you want to tone up certain muscle groups but they're layered with fat, you're going to have to incorporate a cardio routine into your workout plan.

Tip #4
You're not shedding 20+ pounds in a month, so if you've waited ‘til the month of your wedding to start exercising, we hope you don't have much weight to lose because not much weight is coming off. That's just the way our bodies work.

Tip #5
Need workout ideas? Check out the magazine stand at any bookstore. There are always magazines with workout routines so you're sure to find one that suits your needs and lifestyle.
