Partner-Up Exercise Moves!

WORK OUT WITH A BUDDY

It's time to share the love! Pairing up with a friend or loved one can make exercising so much fun and add an extra challenge to your regular routine. Collaborating on moves can also open you up to some new ideas for staying in shape, or give you that little push to see what your body is really capable of - so grab a partner and let's get going!

PRESS-UP AND BRIDGE

Partner 1 (Cory): Take a push-up position with wide hands, flat back, and engaged core.

Partner 2 (Rebecca): Hold the bridge position and go up onto the balls of your feet. Engage your core and keep your legs tight.

WEIGHTED SQUAT

Parter 1 (Cory): Stand with legs wider than your hips and sit down into a squat with butt pressed back, keeping your knees pointed outward. As you stand back up, squeeze your glutes at the top. 

Partner 2 (Rebecca): Jump on the back of your partner and give them a cuddle. Hold on tight!

TRICEP TAPS

Both partners: Perform a tricep dip with hands directly under your armpits, and as you fully extend, give your partner a tap on the opposite hand. Alternate each side.

ASSISTED LEG DROPS

Partner 1 (Cory): Stand behind your partners head. When they lift their legs up to a 90 degree angle, give a little push to the feet.

Partner 2 (Rebecca): Lay flat while keeping your back tightly secured to the ground and lift your legs to a 90 degree angle. Keep your core engaged as your partner pushes your feet at the top. Drop both legs back down to the ground with a controlled movement and repeat!

HANGING SIT-UPS

Partner 1 (Cory): Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart, a slight bend in the knees, and hands above your head.

Partner 2 (Rebecca): Wrap your legs around your partners waist with hands above your head. Lean back and bring your head up to theirs using your core to lift you up.

BONUS MOVE: LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK

Partner 1 (Cory): Lay down and guide your feet onto your parters hips. Keeping your legs as straight as possible, bring your feet to 90 degrees. Relax your head to the ground an hold your partners hands.

Partner 2 (Rebecca): Bring your hips to your partner's feet and lean forward as you lift into the air. Hold your core in tight and the let go of one arm, reaching to the sky!
