Workout Wednesday: Hot Blooded High Five’n: A Partner AMRAP
Ready to push your hunny to the next level? Whether you need to burn off some steam or ignite some passion ;-), this workout has it all. No equipment needed, just you and your chosen buddy. Set your timer for 10 minutes and see how many rounds you can get through. Need a challenge? Do this once a week, working to beat your score each time.
Start in plank position or on your knees facing your partner. Make sure your shoulders are over your wrists. Lower down, past 90 degrees, then push back up and high five your partner. Having trouble doing the full push-up? Lower your body all the way to the ground, release your hands, then push back up. This will strengthen the appropriate muscles and will have you doing full push-ups in no time.
Stand facing your partner. Squat to 90 degrees, then push off your toes to jump up. While in the air, high five your partner. Too hard on the knees? Do a regular squat, but then lift up on your toes instead of jumping.
Sit next to your partner, knees bent, feet on floor. Lift your feet off the floor, keeping your knees bent. Lean back to form a v with your torso. Twist towards your partner- clap, twist away. If this hurts your back, keep your feet on the floor.
Plank Up Downs
Start in plank position facing your partner (feet or knees). Lower down to your elbows. Push back up onto your hands and high five. Make sure to alternate which arm you lower down on first to evenly distribute the work load.
Lie on the ground with your feet on the floor, knees bent, feet facing your partner. Keep your hands on your shoulders and lift up to a full sitting position. High five, then lower back down. If full sit-ups are too hard on your back, do a regular crunch (keep your eyes on the ceiling), and count out loud with your partner.
This full workout can be done either together, as a partner competition (each individually), or alone (just minus the high fives). Your choice! 🙂
Love and Joy,
