The Perfect Total-Body Workout for Couples

Single Arm Jammer with Reverse Lunge

Works: total-body

A. Stand alongside one another facing a wall with feet hip-width apart, each holding a barbell or Bodybar in their right hand, with bar parallel to the wall and arm fully extended. The end of the bar should be pressed up against the wall at the point where wall and floor meet.

B. In unison, each partner steps right foot back, performing a reverse lunge while simultaneously bending right elbow, drawing the end of barbell back toward right shoulder.

C. Partners reverse the movement, stepping right foot back to meet left while simultaneously pressing the barbell forward with control, re-extending right arm and returning to starting position. Complete all reps on right before switching sides and repeating.

Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps per side 

 Point Push-Up

Works: total-body

A. Begin directly facing one another in a plank positon with the right leg lifted, toes off floor. Partners should be close enough that with an arm outstretched they can touch one another.

B. Maintaining this three point position, both partners perform a push-up, allowing elbows to flare out slightly as chests lower toward the floor.

C. Press back up and reach left hands forward to sideways high five the other person while keeping right leg lifted, core engaged, and hips and shoulders as squared to the mat as possible.

Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps

Step Touch & Row

Works: arms and back

A. Stand facing one another with feet hip-width apart, each holding handles of intertwined resistance bands. Stand far enough apart so there is light tension on the band with both arms outstretched.

B. Moving in the same direction toward left side of room, step feet wide while simultaneously bending elbows and keeping them close to body as both partners perform a row.

C. Both partners step opposite foot in to meet foot that just stepped out so feet are once again hip-width apart and arms are re-extending to starting position. Reverse directions and continue to alternate.

Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps
