(If you do not have access to a medicine ball, dumbbell I was using just before also going to be fine – essentially just need something heavy, it is easy to maintain)
The person holding the heavy object rotates to the left, passing the ball to his partner as turn right. Keep repeating for 45 seconds, continuing to turn and pass the ball to each other. Then change the addresses of other 45, leaving a few seconds rest between two sets if necessary.

One carries associated minimum squatting movement, while the other performs a kick essentially kicking leg above his head. Change positions with each kick, ensuring that switch fairly between squatting and kicking.
It tries to complete at least 50 moves in total, standing the right distance away from each of the other for the duration.

One of those who enter a classic table position, while the other is behind holding the ankles of the planks person. When on the ground, it’s your job to move to a regular flex arms bending your elbows to the floor. At the same time, the person standing leaning over the hips.

Why are partner workouts so effective?
While there is definitely nothing wrong with working out solo training partners have been consistently found to be extremely beneficial – and can even generate better results.
An important advantage of working with others increases motivation. If your best friend or partner is a little stronger or faster than you (or vice versa), which instantly creates a sense of healthy competition.
If you have even an ounce of competitive nature, you are pushing yourself to stay on – going more and more of what you would if you were working alone. With increasing desire, there is a strong chance that you achieve your fitness goals a little faster.
In addition, let’s be honest, working with another person is more fun!
There is nothing better than the motivation of someone close to you to achieve your absolute best and experiencing the same stimulus to boost mood to change.
Finally, you are also much less likely to skip workouts if you exercise in pairs. If you have made plans to meet her best friend in the gym, you feel guilty for not showing up, right? Therefore, the ultimate responsibility for your fitness journey, make regular plans to work with others.
