Here are 5 routines that you and your partner can enjoy together!


1. Partner Planks

  • Lie on your stomach, facing your partner.
  • Keep elbows under shoulders, palms flat on floor, and toes tucked under.
  • Using your abdominals, elevate your torso and reach forward with your right hand to touch your partner’s right hand.
  • Switch arms.
  • Gently lower your body back to the ground.
  • That’s one repetition; complete 12 total.


2. Manual Resisted Push-Ups

  • Get in the standard push-up position: back straight, abs tight, hands shoulder-width apart, up on your toes. Your partner faces the same direction and straddles your back, pressing on your shoulders.
  • Bend your elbows to lower your upper body while your partner applies just enough pressure to force you to resist the downward motion.
  • When you come to an inch or so away from the floor, press back up to the start. Your partner continues to press your shoulders downward, resisting your upward movement.
  • Repeat for 10 reps with 3 sets.


3. Medicine Ball Partner Pass

  • Kneel on the floor back-to-back, and slowly twist to one side to hand the ball off to your partner (who should be turning toward you).
  • Then twist to the other side as they turn to hand the ball back to you.
  • Continue passing the ball in that direction for 60-90 seconds, and then repeat the exercise in reverse.

4. Assisted Pistol Squats

  • Stand 2 feet from your partner, facing each other.
  • Hold each other’s wrists.
  • Lift and extend opposite legs.
  • Support & lower each other into a one legged squat.
  • Return to start and repeat for 12 reps.


5. Double Lunge

  • Stand facing your partner, about an arm’s length apart, and hold each other’s hands.
  • Lunge forward with your right leg as your partner lunges backward with their left leg.
  • Reverse the motion, lunging backward with your right leg as your partner lunges forward with their left.
  • Complete 10-12 reps, then switch sides.
