5 Great Exercises To Do As A Couple
One minute of plank holding is challenging enough, but with this enjoyable couple’s exercise, you may have a partner encouraging you as you go. Put one arm’s length between you and your partner as you both assume a plank posture, facing one another. Be careful not to let your back fall to the floor or pushing your bum out into the air. The floor should be parallel to your body, which should be in a straight line.
Reach out and high-five your partner using their right arm and your left. Then, with both elbows on the floor, return to your initial plank posture before extending your other hands toward one another once again.
This one recreates the wheelbarrow walk thing you do as kids in the backyard and incorporates it into a legitimate exercise!
One of you will assume a plank posture, but instead of utilising their elbows to support themselves, they will use their hands and their arms will be fully extended. Make sure they are separated by shoulder-width. Your spouse will then hold your legs so that you are just using your arms for support. After that, tense your core and walk with your arms.
One of you lays down on the sofa’ armrest with your head on it. Your upper body should dangle over the edge, bending at the waist, with your legs positioned on the armrest’s cushion side. To ensure that you have a complete range of motion during this exercise, try to place the armrest so that it is directly below your hip bone.
To go closer to the floor, start by bending at the waist. Inhale, and then push yourself up until your back is straight by contracting your lower back muscles. Ensure that you are not overextending if you find yourself in an arch. then go on.
Your partner is holding onto your legs as you do this to keep you safe and enable you to complete the workout. After your set, switch roles.
Push Up Reach
Push-ups are a fantastic workout that primarily targets the chest and tricep muscles. Although they are usually performed alone, there’s nothing like adding a high five to make it more enjoyable with a partner and to provide a new challenge.
Make sure you’re both doing push-ups while looking at each other. On your toes or on your knees, do the push-up version that is most appropriate for your fitness level. Then you will all reach over with your left hands and give each other a high five. Put your hand back down after doing another push-up, and then give yourselves another right-side high-five.
You may need to practise timing your pushups and synchronising your motions so that you can both give each other a high five at the exact same moment.
For this exercise, you both stand with your backs touching and facing in the opposite directions. Hook the right arm of your partner with your left arm, then repeat on the opposite side.
Now squat down so that your backs are straight and your thighs are parallel to the ground, while keeping your arms still intertwined. When both of you are ready, begin spinning clockwise. After making a complete circle, spin around the other direction. Rinse and repeat!
