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.
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.

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).
