Watch our video for 7 fun partner workouts to do with your bestie/significant other/rando at the gym!
For more information about the workouts, we’re here to help:
Forward-Backward Lunge with Pass
Partner 1 steps back with left leg and into a lunge position. Meanwhile, Partner 2 steps their right leg forward into a lunge position and passes Partner 1 the medicine ball (we used a 6lb ball). Partner 2 then steps right leg backward into a lunge as Partner 1 steps left leg forward into a lunge and hands the ball back to Partner 2.
Side Plank with Rotation and Clap
Partner 1 and Partner 2 are back to back in side plank position. Each partner twists their loose arm underneath them to meet your partner’s hand for a high five. Then rotate back up and clap your hands at the top.
Wheelbarrow Push Up with Squat
Partner 1 gets in squat position. Partner 2 gets in push-up position. Partner 2 raises legs into Partner 1’s hands. At the same time, Partner 1 does a push-up and Partner 2 does a squat.
High Low Twist and Pass
Partner 1 and Partner 2 are back to back (giving enough room to allow your partner to squat). With a medicine ball, Partner 1 will pass the ball from the left (at the high position) to the right (at the low position). Partner 2 will then receive the ball at their left (at the low position) and hand it to their partner at the right (at the high position). Make sure you go clockwise and then counterclockwise, along with changing up who passes and receives at the high and low positions.
Squat with Rotational Pass
Partner 1 and Partner 2 are back to back (giving enough room to allow your partner to be in a squat). With a medicine ball, Partner 1 and 2 rotate passing the ball from side to side while in a squat. Make sure you go clockwise and then go counterclockwise (15 seconds each rotation – will end up being 6 times or 1 minute 30 seconds of passes).
This one was a little more difficult for us to figure out but we finally got it! Partner 1 and 2 will lay on their backs with legs bent and feet on the ground. Partner 1 and 2 are to put bottom of feet against each other. Once you distribute your weight, lift hips up and make a bridge.
Plank Hold and Jump
Partner 1 get in plank position. Partner 2 to do a squat into a jump over the lower part of Partner 1’s legs.
Make sure you and your partner switch workouts. Do each workout 15 times for 3 sets. Alright time to kick butt everyone! We also need to give a shout out to our friend Chris who helped give us workout ideas and so graciously video taped us…drinks are on us!!!
