Full body partner workout Mai Lyn Deep Fried Fit North Dallas Fitness Blog Blogger Love You More Too

Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, my fit friend Mai Lyn with Deep Fried Fit and I thought it would be fun to share a full body partner workout that you can do anywhere. Partner workouts are a great way to stay motivated, use each other as props, and have fun!

If you don’t already know Mai Lyn, she is the founder of Dallas Fitness Ambassadors, loves fried chicken (actually all food), working out, and is a blast to hang out with.  Don’t let her small frame fool you, Mai Lyn is feisty and has more ups than some basketball players.

Top (Fabletics), Bottoms (similar here), Shoes (Nike), Fitness Tracker (Misfit)

These moves target every large muscle group, so grab your favorite guy or gal and get moving!  Complete each move for 60 seconds and go through the entire circuit 2-3 times.  Then, check out Deep Fried Fit for more partner workout moves.

Plank leap frogs

To do this move: Person A will get in plank position and hold while Person B jumps over and back.  Then, Person B will drop to plank and Person A will jump over. Continue for 60 seconds. 

Plank taps

To do this move: Facing one another, each person get in to plank position. Reach your right arm across your body to high five your partner’s right hand, then alternate.  Continue for 60 seconds. 

Back to back squat

To do this move: Stand back to back with your partner and link arms.  At the same time, lower down to a squat (be sure your legs are at 90° angles and your knees aren’t past your toes). Hold for 30 seconds. To come out, use each others weight to push against one another and walk your legs back in.  Repeat and hold for 30 more seconds. 

Pencil push

To do this move: Facing one another and holding on to each others arms, put legs together, stand up on your highest heels, tuck your tail, and lower down.  Once you are in “pencil position” pulse up an inch, down an inch.  Continue for 60 seconds. 

Straddle stretch

To do this move: While seated, face your partner and straddle your legs.  Grab your partner’s hands, take a deep breath and pull your partner towards you.  Hold for 2 breath cycles, then come back up to seated.  Allow your partner to pull you toward them and hold for 2 breath cycles. Continue alternating for 60 seconds.

Repeat entire circuit 2-3 times for complete workout.

  • Dominique February 13, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    Wow those are some serious moves! Love that plank jump one… having to jump over your partner is definitely a motivator for making sure you jump high enough 😀

  • Heather L. February 13, 2017 at 4:49 pm

    As if planks aren’t hard enough. lol! These looks pretty intense, but I could totally see it turning into some laughter. 🙂 I’ve done a couple of these, but the straddle stretch is my favorite. I love stretching.

  • erica February 14, 2017 at 9:44 am

    This is awesome! I need to recruit my bestie to do these moves with me, we have both gained a few pounds and need help dropping them!

  • hal February 14, 2017 at 2:14 pm

    this is great – i should totally try it because i really thrive in group exercise settings or partnering up with someone for motivation -i don’t do nearly as well by myself!

  • Oscar February 14, 2017 at 5:32 pm

    These look great and should really help staying motivated, although you have to pick the right partner to match ability and size I think.

  • Cameron February 14, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    This looks so fun! Way better than what I get to do with my boyfriend haha!
