Partner Workout

June 24, 2015
For this fun, powerful workout, just grab a partner! 
.
My hubby, Adi, and I dropped off the kids and thought we'd squeeze in a sweat sesh before jumping into the rest of our day. I created this workout so you don't need much time (just 15-20 minutes!), space (you can work out at home, in your bedroom or living room), equipment, or shoes (although I'm loving my new Fabletics outfit!). 
.
We do 3 exercises, each with 3 sets of 10 reps —you can do more or less reps and more or less sets depending upon your fitness level and goals, as well as how much time you have on hand. The key is to listen to your body, while challenging yourself and your partner! 
.
.
1) Modified Burpee 
.
Instead of a plank, come into an "upward dog" position. Then jump up with explosive movement into a tuck jump. Repeat 10 times. 
.
Works: The entire body  
.
.
2) Ball Pass 
.
For this move, you can use either a weighted ball or just twist and give high fives. To begin, sit back-to-back with your partner, and with your spine tall, twist from your core (not your back). Pass the ball or slap high five and repeat for 10 full reps.
.
Works: abs, obliques, arms 
.
.
3) Wall Handstand Push-ups 
.
This one's a bit of a challenge! If you're still working on your handstand, instead just hold it for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, or a minute. If you've got your handstand against the wall, start to bend your elbows (keeping your triceps in towards your body), activating your biceps and triceps into that handstand push-up. 
.
Works: core, triceps, biceps (+ increases your ability to balance!) 
.

We'd love to see an action shot of your partner workout!
