Bicep Curl Trade Off with Mountain Climbers
This is one of my favorite couples exercises and requires hard work from each partner to keep the exercise moving. Each partner will choose a moderately heavy preloaded barbell to perform ten (10) bicep curls.
Place barbells a few feet in front of each of you. One partner will begin his/her 10 repetitions while the other partner performs mountain climbers behind his/her barbell.
As soon as the first partner is finished with curls, the second partner will pop up and immediate start his/her 10 repetitions while the first partner drops down to perform mountain climbers. The partner performing bicep curls will dictate how long the second partner performs mountain climbers- so be sure to keep working hard to save your partner!
Perform 10-12 repetitions, 2-3 sets.
Patty Cake Plank
Assume push up position across from your partner, head to head. Leave a foot or two of space between you, enough room to “high five” each other. Perform push ups together and “high five” at the top of the rep- right hand to right hand. Perform another push up together and “high five” at the top of the rep- left hand to left hand. Perform 12-15 repetitions, 2-3 sets.
Exercising with your significant other is a fantastic way to create a deeper connection and work on a common goal. Get to work utilizing these exercises for an awesome couples workout!
