Try this killer couples workout with your bae


Couple workouts are great because they help a relationship thrive emotionally and keep you and your significant other healthy. These workouts are way more interactive than simply going for a run or hitting the gym together. Having your significant other double as a sweat sesh buddy is super fun and makes your workout feel a lot less like work.

Partner Passes
Face your partner standing a few feet away from them. The first person hold the medicine ball over their head and forcibly bounce passes it on the ground to the second person (so the ball bounces once before they catch it). The second person, engaging their core, raises the ball above their head before passing it back to the first person. Repeat for 10-15 reps. Not making sense? Check out number 18 on this article.

Partner Push-Ups 
Start in a lowered push-up position. Your partner now should stand over you, placing their hands on your back. Your partner should be gently pushing on your back as you raise into your push-up in order to create resistance. Keep your core engaged for this workout.

Wheelbarrow Walks
Get into a plank position with your hands on the ground and your core engaged. Your partner will now grab your ankles as you use your hands to walk. This workout targets your chest, triceps, and shoulders. For tips on keeping your body engaged and tutorials check out this article.

Jump Squats 
Facing your partner (about two feet away from 'em) stand with your feet hip-width apart and keep your knees slightly bent. Simultaneously lower into a squat. While one partner holds the squat, the other jumps up raising their arms in the air, as if you're trying to touch the ceiling. As soon as the first person lands the second raises into a jump.

Hamstring Raises
Start with your knees on the ground and your back straightened. Your partner should be in plank position with their arms extended and hands resting on your ankles. Slowy lower your body to the floor, keeping your body straight. Land your hands in a push-up position. Lift yourself back up and return to the starting position. Do this for 30 seconds and then switch with your partner. Do 3 reps of this workout
