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.
Push-Up High Five
Targets shoulders, chest, biceps, and triceps
Want to see your +1 grunt through a set of push-ups with you? Use this exercise to work both of you at the same time:
- Face your partner arms length apart. Get in push-up position, hands directly under your shoulders, legs extended, abs engaged.
- Do a push-up, bending elbows 90 degrees. Push back up to starting position and give each other a high five, extending arm straight out, rather than up.
- Complete reps until fatigued.
