Partner Training – Week 10 – Partner Training Stretches

We are at the end of a 10 week Partner Training Series and you now have a ton of options available to you for working out with your husband, a relative, a co-worker or friend. You’ve already learned a number of different exercises you can do with your partner. The question is how do you organize it all? You obviously can’t do it all each workout. So you may want to decide that on Monday and Fridays you do a Boxing workout with medicine ball exercises in between drills.  And then maybe on Wednesday and Saturdays you do a Tubing workout together and any other fun activities/drills you do together will be a bonus. We hope that it provides a lot of variety to your workouts and now that you know how to workout together, we hope that it really enhances the commitment to your health and fitness program and to your friendship.

It’s always a good idea to keep your connective tissue and your body limber and flexible so we will finish our series with a few stretches that you can do together at the end of your workouts.

Partner Training – Week 9 – No Equipment Partner Training

Over the last few months, you’ve learned a variety of partner exercises you can do utilizing boxing equipment, medicine balls, and tubing.

“Partners who sweat together, stay together!”

Partner Squats:

Start by facing your partner holding onto each others arms.  You begin the exercise by each of you slowly squatting backwards while keeping your kneecaps pointing forwards – avoid allowing your knees to collapse inwards.Try to keep your weight equally distributed on all 4 corners of your feet – avoid allowing your arches to collapse inwards. Lower until your upper thighs are parallel to the floor or to a comfortable position. Now slowly extend back up. Complete 1 set of 8-20 reps. This one’s a good one to develop trust in each other!
