Valentines Day Massacre Workout at Next Level on V-Day!

For most people Valentine’s Day is an excuse to cuddle up to that special someone, eat chocolates, and make sweet sweet "music". Hey, sounds good to me too, but surely we can be more creative than that!

This Saturday at Next Level its a chance for all my boot campers, personal training clients, and anyone else interested, to bring in their significant other to the Next Level Boot Camp for LUVAHS! Saturday 11 A.M. Its an all partner workout for the national day of LOVE!

Why not mix things up this Valentintes Day with a fun workout you can do in the comfort of your home with your significant other?

Today I am going to introduce you to the concept of partner training. Partner training is essentially a workout that involves performing joint exercises with at least one other person or more.
There are a ton of benefits to partner training, including:
Social Support and Accountability
No Equipment Needed
Provides a Ton of Variety
Breeds Competition and Drives Better Results
It’s FUN!

Partner training is something that I am going to introduce into our Next Level Boot Camps. The inner "hulk" seems to come out of the woodwork whenever people workout with someone else- you are simply pushed to the limit and there is no better way to make your body change and break out of a frustrating training rut.

But, being that it’s the most "important" holiday of the year (yeah, I am being a sarcastic smart ass), let’s make today’s partner training workout a little more intimate if you will. ooooh lah lah!

So grab your honey pie and try this bad boy out!

The Valentine’s Day Workout for Couples- Tabata Style Partner Training

This 20-minute total body partner workout will consist of all body weight-based exercises. For each exercise at each outlined station below you will alternate between 20 s of work and 10 s of rest. You will repeat this 30-second sequence eight times for four total minutes followed by a one-minute rest and transition before moving on to the next station listed:

Station#1- Partner Push-up-Row Combo
Station #2- Partner Resisted Stationary Lunges- Static or Dynamic

Now go ask someone to be your valentine and take your partner workout to the next level! They say that sweat-driven pheromones are one of nature’s most powerful aphrodisiacs… you tell me ;)

Yours In Fitness,
