We sure you’ve heard the saying, “some things are just better together”. We agree, because studies have shown that working out with a partner has more benefits than training solo. Working out with a friend, co-worker or significant other can increase accountability, keep you motivated and can produce better overall results.
So grab your workout buddy put on your Boody activewear and get active with these fun workouts:
1. High-five push ups
Begin in a push-up position, head-to-head with your partner. Both of you should lower your body into a push-up and rise back up together. At the top of each rep, raise your right arms to give a sideways high-five. Repeat the push-up and high-five with your left arm, and continue this for as long as you can.
2. Medicine-ball twist passes
Stand facing away from each other about two feet apart. Place your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and bend your knees slightly. The first partner holds the medicine ball with both hands. Both individuals rotate to opposite sides. The first partner hands the medicine ball from behind to the second partner who retrieves it from behind. Both individuals turn to the opposite sides to again exchange the medicine ball from behind.
3. Kangaroo hops
Face your partner with your feet together. Jump your feet apart into a squat position, then jump your feet back together as you return to a standing position. Its super fun and it gets your heart pumping.
4. Plank it
Come into a forearm plank position and hold it for 45 seconds or as long as you both can while looking at your partner. Looking at your partner whilst doing this helps keep your spine in a neutral position which is important when doing this exercise.
5. The #Throwback
Lay on the floor while your partner stands over you, facing your feet. Grab your partner’s ankles. Keep your lower back pressed into the ground, raise your legs, when they reach a 90 degree angle to the floor, your partner then needs to push your legs back down. Switch places and repeat this exercise as many times as you can.
