If You Have a Workout Buddy
On days when you’re looking for a little extra motivation, a workout partner can help you push harder than if you’d worked out solo. This circuit, designed by Guy, adds a crucial element of competition to push you both harder, too.
Plank Off: Each person holds a plank as long as possible. Winner rests, loser does 10 burpees.
Pause Push-Ups: You and your partner both get in push-up position facing each other. Do 10 push-ups, but at the bottom of each one, see who can pause the longest without breaking form. Best of 10, and winner rests, loser does 5 more regular push-ups.
Squat Rows: Loop two resistance tubes together. Stand facing your partner, with each of you holding a handle in each hand (bands should have tension). Simultaneously squat and then row the handles to your sides, elbows back (creating even more tension). Do 15 reps.
Relay Sprints: One of you sprint to a designated point and back. Your partner does the same while you recover. Each do four sprints.
Wall Sits: Stand with your backs against a wall, feet shoulder-width apart. Slide down until there’s a 90-degree bend in your knees. Hold until one of you breaks. Winner rests, loser does 20 walking lunges (10 each leg).
Medicine Ball Squat-Throws: Stand facing each other, about five feet apart, with knees slightly bent, one of you holding a medicine ball in front of your chest with both hands, elbows bent by sides. The person with the ball squats, stands up, then swings it back overhead and throws it forward to the partner, who catches it and immediately does the same. Continue alternating for 10 reps each.
Jump Off: Jump rope until someone faults. Loser buys the recovery meal.
