~Happy Workout Wednesday~*~
Yayy for working out with a friend! I find it fun to work out with someone else because you can switch up your routine & have some fun with your workout. Workouts should be fun even when you’re alone, but sometimes ya just need that extra spice. That extra spice (in this case) is a workout partner.
The reason I decided to try out an arm-focused partner lift: my younger sister has been coming to the gym with me & actually lifting 😀 Sooooo I have to find ways to keep her interested & occupied at all times…or else she’ll be lost to the world of distraction.
On this particular day, it was time to train arms. Here’s what I came up with*:
Barbell Curl & Pass: Stand across from your partner. DO 1 rep of a barbell curl, pass the bar to them. Wait for them to curl 1 rep and do 2 reps when you get the bar back. Work your way up to 10 reps. If you’re feeling extra strong & ~vascular~, work your way back down to 1 rep!
Tricep Dips: 4×8 + Jumping Jacks: until partner is ready to switch
I threw in some cardio because you should keep your heart muscles working too..So you can strengthen your friendship while you strengthen your arms!! HAHA
Skullcrushers: 4×12 + Switch Lunges (switch leg after each rep): until partner is ready to switch
Tricep Rope Push-down: 4×12 + Hammer Curls: 4×10
Finish with whatever cardio you like- keep the partner pattern going & have fun! Add some more lifts if you so desire. Adjust the rep/set ratio if needed.
Drink lots of water, friends! Feed your body the fuel it needs. Enjoy!
*You can most definitely do this workout solo!!! Just modify the switching activities to a certain amount of time in between your own set! 🙂
