Workout of the Week: Exercise Buddies Unite!

What’s better than getting in killer shape?

Getting in killer shape with a friend!

This partner workout is designed to give you and your buddy a high intensity, fat burning work out – at the same time!

Here’s how it works:

These workouts will have 30 second work intervals followed by 5 seconds of rest/transition intervals.

Partner #1 will do as many reps as they can in the Primary Movement, and Partner #2 will hold the Secondary Movement for as long as they can.

Ready to get fit with your BFF? Lets get started!
