Grab your bestie and try our sister-sister sweat sesh

 
There’s no better motivation for the gym than going with your bestie—and hey, it just might help ya stick with your routine! Working out with a friend will make ya work harder, and you won’t be afraid to try more intimidating exercises if you’ve got a friend by your side. Try some of these awesome moves…

 

Hook Squat

Try this partner twist to this awesome glute workout. Stand back-to-back with your girl and get into squat position (knees over your ankles). Keeping your backs together, squat down and walk clockwise in a circle. Once you’ve completed the circle, count to 20 and then walk in a circle counterclockwise. Do 3 sets. You’ll constantly have to be supporting and motivating each other. If one person bails, the whole exercise will crumble.

 

Partner Push-Up

Have one of you get into push-up position (lying on your stomach, elbows bent at 90 degrees and palms on the floor). Have your bestie stand over you and place her hands on your upper back. As you push up, have her create a little resistance on ya by pushing down a lil’ bit. Make sure you keep your core tight to get a good ab workout in too. Do as many as you can, and then switch!

 

Foot-to-Foot Bicycle Crunch

Lie on your back with your legs bent and feet flat on the ground. Be sure to line up toe-to-toe with your partner. Press the soles of your feet against your partners and lift your legs off the ground. Lift your shoulders off the ground (as if you are doing a normal crunch), and pull your right knee in to your chest. Extend your left leg, and bring your left elbow to your right knee. Make sure your partner is doing the same and your feet stay pressed together the entire time. Repeat the opposite side to complete one rep. Try 12! Sure, you can do a bicycle crunch on your own, but pressing against each other’s feet will make your abs work harder.

 

Chest Toss with Medicine Ball

This one seems easy, but trust us, you’ll feel it tomorrow. Stand face-to-face with your partner about 6 feet apart. Hold the medicine ball in front of your chest with your elbows bent. Push the medicine ball forward as you toss it to your partner. She’ll catch your toss and then toss it back the same way.

 

Burpees

Finding a cardio workout that involves two people can be hard. Try taking turns doing burpees. One of you stands with feet hip-width apart. Bend your knees and place your hands on the floor in front of you, then kick your legs back to be in a pushup position. Reverse the movement and come back to the starting position with a little hop. Do as many as you can, and then your bestie goes while you take a rest. Be sure to cheer each other on when you’re resting. The motivation will really help you finish this tough workout.
 

Partner Straddle Stretch

It’s really important that you stretch at the end of your workout, so why not keep the partner exercises going? Face your partner in a wide-legged straddle position. Be sure that your feet are touching, and hold hands. One of you leans back, while the other leans forward bending at the hips. Hold for 10 seconds, then switch.
