Full body buddy workout


Working out with someone can be great way to have fun and get a workout in at the same time. You’ll probably find you’ll push yourself more than if you were working out alone!

So what are you waiting for? Complete each exercise 10 times, take 1-minute rest and repeat for 10 minutes.

Before you dive in to the main workout, make sure to warm up. Jog on the spot and start with some star jumps to raise your body temperature so you’re ready for your main workout.
