There are many benefits to working out together:
Quality Time - Exercising together is a great opportunity for quality time.
A Common Interest - It doesn’t matter if it’s tennis, running, going to the gym, golf, etc. Sharing an interest is a great way to grow.
Motivation & Support - This is a perfect time to earn bonus points. Exercising together offers the opportunity to motivate and support each other. Couples can also work together to achieve their goals.
Cardio is great, even if the couples have different fitness levels. With this routine you want to increase cardio stamina and tone targeted muscle groups. Most examples can be performed in a gym, but are great fun outdoors. You will be able to lose weight and have fun together!
it is very important to do a proper warm-up. Begin with a five-minute walk, either outdoors or on a treadmill. Stretch any muscles that you plan to use during that day’s workout. Hold the stretches for 15-30 seconds and do 2-3 repetitions for each.
Do 3-4 days per week
3 sets of 12
3 sets of 15
3/4 sets of 30 seconds (in order)
*When using dumbbells for the exercises above, make sure to use a light weight, especially when starting the routine. The right weight will feel like you could do a few more repetitions at the end of the set. For example, a set of 12 curls should feel like you could do two or three more. That is a good measuring stick. If you could do more than 8, increase your weight.
