Stay in shape and strengthen your relationship at the same time!

Exercise is always more fun with someone, and if you and your partner are trying to get in shape, doing your workouts together can also strengthen your relationship. Here’s a simple yet challenging couples workout from Be The Fittest that you should definitely try.

1. Pushup claps

This workout exercises your chest muscles and the triceps. Remember to keep your core tight and back straight as you do your pushups. If you can’t do a full pushup, try the modified pushup with your knees to the floor instead.

Do 10 repetitions, then rest for 30 seconds.

2. Burpee jumps & plank

Get into a plank position while your partner does a burpee. Instead of jumping in place, however, your partner should jump over you. (If a burpee is too difficult for either of you, try out these modified versions.)

Do 5 repetitions, switch over so you do the burpees and your partner does the plank. Rest for 30 seconds.
