Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to grab your partner or your bestie for a serious core workout!
Working out with a partner is much more fun!
You encourage and motivate one another, you sweat together, and hold each other accountable for showing up.
Here is my favorite partner core workout!
Seated Core Rotations
Sit back to back with your partner (spine long, core engaged) - pass a weighted ball back and forth to each other (making sure the ball goes around the full 360 degrees) - pass the ball 10 times each direction.
Laying supine, hook your ankles with your partner.
With knees bent, extend arms overhead. One partner will start with a ball in their hands - both partners will sit up, pass the ball, and lower back down.
Continue moving this way, crunching all the way up and passing the ball, then lowering all the way back down.
Pass the ball 20 times.
Core Ladder Drills
Come into a high plank with both hands inside the ladder, facing your partner.
High five your partner (right hand to right hand, then left hand to left hand) then walk laterally to the next box and repeat.
Walk the entire distance of the ladder and back.
Option to add a theraband around the legs for additional resistance for the legs (working the abductors).
Come into a plank position on your forearms facing your partner.
Both partners will bring right arm up and gently touch partners right forearm, hold for a count of 10, then bring arms come back down. Switch to left side, hold for a count of 10 then lower and switch.
