Galentine’s Day Partner Workout

Do you ever get so bored with your workout routine? I know I have! It’s super easy to slip into a slump of the same old moves, same old weights, and same old sets. Doing the same thing over and over again is a sure fire way to see the same results (or lack of results!).

I have been making a point to get in more creative workouts that make me sweat and have fun. A group of us get together every day at lunch to do a fun, new workout together.

Because it’s the season of love, I figured I should put together the best Galentine’s Day workout for all those gym squad besties out there. I got my favorite girl Sarah to help me out with these movies–because you’ll need a buddy! We like to workout together, but why not try some moves that make us actually work together?

Grab your gym squad, accountability buddy, or bestie and try out this Galentine’s Day Buddy Workout!

1. Got Your Back Squats

Stand back to back with your gal-pal and grab hands. Place your feet shoulder width apart and squat while pushing against your partner’s back. Come back up. Repeat 10 times for one set.

2.  Count On Me Ab Twist

Sit on the ground back to back with your buddy. Grab a medicine ball or weight that’s comfortable for each of you, and pass it around by twisting your abs. Pass the ball 20 times for one set.

3. Never Gonna Let Ya Down Wheelbarrow and Row

One buddy gets into push up position while the other holds the ankles. One person does a push up, and then the other person pulls the ankles in like a row. Complete this 5 times and then switch spots for another 5 reps.

5. What’s Mine is Yours Ball Pass

Grab a medicine ball or a weight you’re both comfortable with. Lay down with your feet next to each others. One person holds the medicine ball or weight flat on the ground, then both sit up using your core, pass the ball to your buddy, and lay back down using your core. Repeat 30 times for 1 set.

Try doing these reps all the way through 3 times, or as many sets as you are both comfortable. Make sure you chat and laugh with your gal pal the whole time–because laughing burns extra calories, right?? Haha! If you have any questions about
