Our buds over at Be Well were talking about this article this week, and because we love anything that’s timeless, classic, and no-frills, we’re sharing it with you, too.

It’s a breakdown from Women’s Health on the only five strength-training exercises that anyone really needs to do—no need for new-fangled or fancy or complicated!—because altogether, they basically hit your entire body. (And better yet, you don’t need to be in a gym to do them!)

Add these moves into some cardio, some good nutrition, and you’re pretty much good to go on your journey to get fabulously dress-ready before you rock it down that aisle.

With the help of our buds over at Be Well Philly, we stay pretty well-informed of the fitness scene here in Philly. If you haven’t already read up on the variety of classes offered around the city, you’re missing out, because there really are a ton of unique ways to get your workout on these days (paddleboard yoga, anyone?).

And since we always have you, our readers, in mind, we’re particularly fond of the local studios that have created special workouts and fitness packages just for brides-to-be. We know working out can oftentimes get tossed on the back burner when the stresses of wedding planning take over, so we’re all for a program that makes it just a bit easier (and more fun) to fit exercising into your schedule.

I don’t know about you guys, but my Shore weekends during the summer get me all kinds of off track when it comes to working out.

It’s not really shocking to hear, via a new study by the United States National Center for Health Statistics, that married men see the doctor more than single men.

Single men subsist on refrigerators full of ketchup and Bud Light.
