Couplecise; Exercises for both the bride and groom
18 Jul 2017
Get in shape with your partner using these exercises which will allow you some quality time together and give you the physique you've always dreamed of
We all want to look the best for our wedding and it’s important that you can fit in the dress on the best day of your life. A great way to do this is to exercise, and a fantastic way to motivate yourself through your exercise plan is to workout with your fiancé.
In fact, couples who work out together, stay together. Studies have shown that couples that participate in physical activities together are more satisfied with their relationship than couples that don’t. These physically active couples also see more results from their workout when they embark on an exercise regimen together. Here are some exercises to try with your partner and more can be found at Total Shape.
1. Reverse lunge with medicine ball
Weight loss requires regular cardiovascular exercise and a medicine ball can help mix up your cardio routine to make your workout more interesting. To incorporate a medicine ball with your partner, try the reverse lunge workout. Instead of a typical lunge, you lunge backwards with one leg. When you push to stand again, throw the ball to your partner, who will also do the same thing.
2. Lying leg throw-down
This exercise will challenge your abs and legs in a playful way. Lie on your back and put your head between your partner’s feet. Hold their ankles and lift your legs up towards your partner. Your partner will push down your legs and challenge you to pop them back up to them without letting your heels touch the ground.
3. Wall sits
This workout will work your thighs and glutes and can be used as the last exercise in your workout. Stand back to back and both you and your partner should enter a sitting position, as if you were sitting in an invisible chair. Challenge each other to hold the position for as long as possible. You can distract each other by whispering sweet nothings, talking through the colours for your wedding, or simply just holding hands. Now, that's amore.
