by


Ready to sweat? Workout buddies Julie Anne Cormier and Juliette Lauer are back with another round of partner exercises that will get you toned while having fun. For more fitness, follow them at @julieannefrenchfry and @juliettelauer.

 

It’s Julie Anne Cormier and Juliette Lauer here to share another partner workout, so grab a friend and get ready to sweat! For us, working out with a friend helps you stay accountable. We’re each other’s cheerleaders encouraging one another to push harder (or easier) when we should!

 

This is an 18-minute interval workout designed for two partners to do together. Some of the exercises require you to work together and some alternate different movements.

 

Warm Up: Rotation Squats
Two 45-second sets / 15-second rests in-between each

This exercise challenges you to work together to counterbalance each other’s weight while squatting and twisting.

  • To begin, face each other while standing. Reach across to hold each other’s forearm starting with left hand to your partner’s left hand.
  • Lean back and squat together while twisting your upper bodies outward.
  • Come back to the top, switch arms and repeat for entire 45-second set.

 

Chair Pose and Triceps Dips
Two 45-second sets each / In total, four 45-second sets / 15-second rests in-between each

One partner targets quads while the other targets triceps. You’ll switch positions giving muscle groups a rest between sets.

  • One partner sits in chair pose with feet just wider than hip distance apart and arms overhead. Keep a straight spine, tucked pelvis and weight evenly distributed in feet. Hold this position throughout the 45-second set.
  • The other partner places hands above the knees of their partner and bends elbows for tricep dips. Keep shoulders rotated back for an open chest and elbows pointing back rather than outward. Repeat for 45 seconds.

 

Planks Pops and Squat Jumps
Two 45-second sets each / In total, four 45-second sets / 15-second rests in-between each

These exercises are sure to get your heart rate up. For an added challenge, try to sync the speed of your pops and hops! Do as many pops or jumps as you can throughout each 45-second set.

Plank Pops

  • Start in plank position with feet hip width apart.
  • Push through your toes to hop feet wider than hip width apart and then back together.
  • Engage your core to keep hips in a straight line with the body.

Squat Jumps

  • Start standing with feet hip width apart.
  • Jump, bring legs wide and squat.
  • Jump again to bring legs back together.

 

Pushups and High Knees
Two 45-second sets each / In total, four 45-second sets / 15-second rests in-between each

We’re taking turns rotating between solo exercises again. This is a tough one so cheer each other on! One partner does push-ups while the other is standing and jumps one knee up toward the torso at a time continuously for each 45-second set.

 

Burpees and Reverse Burpees
Two 45-second sets each / In total, four 45-second sets / 15-second rests in-between each

We saved the toughest for last, but keep it up because you’re almost done! These are separate exercises, but challenge yourselves to sync the timing so you jump together.

Reverse Burpee

  • Begin standing with arms overhead.
  • Bend knees to lower to the ground with control.
  • Roll onto your back and bring your knees to your face and then your feet to the sky. Option: lift your butt off the ground for an extra challenge.
  • Roll forward with momentum to bring your feet back to the ground.
  • Rise to stand and jump explosively.
  • Repeat for 45 seconds.

Burpee

  • Begin standing with arms overhead.
  • Lower to a squat with hands on the ground next to your feet.

  • Jump the feet forward back to your squat.
  • Rise to stand and jump explosively.
  • Repeat for 45 seconds.
