Whilst working out in sync will provide the motivation, plus a little healthy competition is always good…the concept involves using the body weight of the other person to tailor a workout that will test both, regardless of their own personal fitness levels and goals.
Two types of training will see you both achieving your goals, enjoying some down time and even getting to know another side of your partner!
The first of which will involve single routines completed together at the gym or at home, the support of your partner will ensure you are working out correctly and safely whilst a little praise from one another is one of the best motivators for consistency.
Other slightly advanced exercises where each person works against the others body weight will target similar or different areas of the body for each person depending on their movement. Couples exercises including alternating box jumps, partner push up, kneeling partner twist, wheelbarrow push up squat are just a few of the combinations that you can factor into regular workouts with your one, that will have you feeling the burn and the love!
