The bride-to-be has a lot to worry about. From her trousseau to planning out the functions, she has to manage so many things at the same time. All the hullabaloo leaves her no time to spend time in the gym and workout. But don’t worry, we have created a list of exercises that you can do at your home without any equipment. Put on your shoes, take out your yoga mats and hop on.

Plank: Planks are quite a rage with fitness freaks. You can include it in your workout by getting into a push-up position on the floor. Bend your elbows to an angle of 90° and rest your body weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line. Hold the position for as long as you can. Planks help in developing core strength, they work on the abs, lower back, glutes and quadriceps.Side Plank: Side planks help in strengthening your lower back, core along with building shoulder strength. If you want to get rid of those love handles, side plank is your best friend. Start on your side with your feet together and one forearm directly below your shoulder. Contract your core and raise your hips until your body is in a straight line from head to feet. Hold the position as long as you can, then repeat on the other side to complete the workout.Bicycle Crunch: Bicycle Crunches work on the midsection area. Lie down on the mat with knees bent, feet lifted and hands locked behind your head. Twist to bring right elbow to left knee, straightening right leg and vice versa. Do this workout for a minute.

Push-Up: Push-ups are a win-win situation as they work on your abs, arms and shoulders. Start with your shoulders above your wrists and your spine straight. Bend your elbows and lower your body to the floor. Push through the palms to straighten your arms.

Squat: It is time to tone your legs! Keep your back straight and squat down. Keep your knees in line with your feet. Do two sets of 10 reps.

Jump Squat: Jump squats work on strengthening your leg muscles. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and arms at your sides. Do a regular squat and jump, reaching for the ceiling when you rise. While landing, lower your body back into a squat position. Do two sets of 10 reps.

Boat Pose: Boat pose your way to a flat tummy. Begin seated with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and hands resting beside your hips. Keeping your spine straight, lean back slightly and lift your feet. Draw in your low back, lift your chest, and lengthen the front of your torso.
