Pair Up and Slim Down: The Couple Workout
Quit the cuddling and spend some QT time at the gym instead. "Research shows that 94 percent of couples stick with their fitness programs when they work out together," says Jari Love, certified personal trainer and fitness DVD star. Here, some moves to try together.
Sara Haley, international fitness expert and Reebok global master trainer loves Hook Squats because they require constant willpower from each partner. If one of you stops the motion, the exercise can't be completed. "It's a great way to motivate and support each other," says Haley.
- Stand back to back with your partner and get into proper squat position with knees over ankles.
- Squat down together and slowly walk clockwise while still squatting in a circle.
- Once circle has been completed, count to 20 and walk in a circle counterclockwise.
- Do 3 sets.
