I’m super excited about tonight’s post…we’re talking Valentine’s Day! I’ve got a really fun couple’s partner workout for you and recipe inspiration.
Let’s talk about the workout first. I don’t know about you but I love working out with a partner from time to time. It’s a fun way to mix it up and motivate yourself. When you do it with your significant other, it can be a great bonding activity. And the endorphins released by exercise will definitely put you in the mood for a good Valentine’s Day!
I’ve programmed a little bodyweight chipper for you that can be done at home with no equipment. You’ll start by hitting the road for a one mile run. Then you’ll come in for a mix of bodyweight exercises and planks. The way this works is that while one partner works, the other performs a plank. So for example, partner 1 does 25 air squats while partner B holds a plank. When parter A needs a break, switch.
*Note, for the leg throws you will take a break from the planks. Check out this image for a visual of what you’ll do together for this movement.
And here’s my food inspiration for you! I don’t know about you but I always prefer the intimacy of staying in and cooking on Valentine’s Day instead of fighting the crowds and going out. Here are some of my favorite at home “special” meal ideas.
What are you planning for Valentine’s Day? Going out, staying in?
