Courtney King's Couples Workout
Complete each exercise move 2-3 times.
Lie on your back on the floor, placing your hands above your head to grab onto your partner’s ankles for support! They will stand above you while you do a lying leg raise on the floor by bringing your legs up and back down. Do this 20 times.
Put both your backs against each other, keeping your legs in front of you at a 90° angle. Think: You’re sitting on a chair without the chair. Don’t put your hands on your legs – that’s cheating! Hold for at least one minute.
Perform a plank with your partner, keeping your elbows on the ground and legs behind you. Keep your back flat and not dropped or elevated. For a variation of this exercise, drop to your knees. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute and keep your core tight with a relaxed neck.
Starting in a lunge position, jump in the air and complete 10 on each leg.
Start in a push-up position with your partner, facing each other. Perform a push-up together and when you’re at the top of the exercise, extend opposite hands and clap. If doing a push-up is a bit challenging, just stay in a plank on your hands and alternate going back and forth clapping hands. Remember to hold your core tight and strong to target your abs. Complete 10 push-up claps.
In a squat position, do 15-20 (or as many as you can) bodyweight pop squats. Similar to a jump squat, pop squats start off in a wide stance and end in a narrow stance with each jump.
