Workout of the Week
Partner Workout

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

Equipment
You will need a ball or another object in this workout. A kettlebell or dumbbell may also be substituted for a ball in some cases for more of a challenge.

Workout
Circuit 1: Complete each exercise for 10-15 repititions with minimal rest between exercises. Repeat the circuit for 3 sets. Rest for 30 seconds between sets.

Full Body Burn 1: Partners will choose opposite exercises to start with and complete their exercise for the designated amount of repetitions. Once they both finish their reps, they will switch exercises. Each partner will repeat each exercise for 2 sets. Rest for 30 seconds between sets.

Circuit 2: Complete each exercise for 10-15 repititions with minimal rest between exercises. Repeat the circuit for 3 sets. Rest for 30 seconds between sets

Full Body Burn 2: Partners will choose opposite exercises to start with and complete their exercise for the designated amount of repetitions. Once they both finish their reps, they will switch exercises. Each partner will repeat each exercise for 2 sets. Rest for 30 seconds between sets.

Perform a cool-down that allows for your heart rate to gradually slow down to a normal rate and hold static stretches such as the ones below for 20-30 seconds each. It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.
