It’s always better together. I recently teamed up with my girl Michelle Carigma of Modern Fit (@_modernfit) to create a self sufficient workout date. Assign your partner a number, complete these three exercises, then switch! Grab some water then do it all again.
Partner 1(Michelle) – Forearm Plank. Engage your core and glutes. Use your lats to press your forearms into the ground and chest away from the ground.
Partner 2(Meagan) – 20 Tuck Jumps over Parter 1. Get your knees up and count the 20 jumps aloud.
Added difficulty: Partner 1- Lift one leg and hold. Switch lifted legs halfway through Partner 2’s set (jump 10).
Partner 2 – Wall Sit. Sit against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart. Have your partner check that your bum is even with your knees to make a perfect 90 degree angle. Roll your shoulders back, engage your lower abs and hold the position as long as it takes for Partner 1 to complete their set below.
Partner 1 – 30 Tricep Dips. Bend your arms to 90 degrees while holding your partner’s knees. If this feels awkward, have Partner 2 widen their stance. Without letting your elbows splay outwards, push up until your arms are nearly straight. Repeat 30 times.
Added Difficulty: Partner 2- Do 15 dips with right leg lifted parallel to the ground then switch legs for the remainder of the set.
Partner 1- 25 Sit Ups. Two feet on the ground. Arms crossed or behind your head.
Partner 2- Mountain Climbers. Start in plank position while holding Partner 1’s feet. Draw one knee towards your nose, switch. Repeat as fast as you can for as long as it takes Partner 1 to completes their sit-up set.
Added Difficulty: Partner 1- Touch opposite elbow to knee while sitting up. Partner 2- Cross your knees to opposite shoulders.
