Working out with a partner makes many exercises more dynamic and challenging. Exercising with your significant other brings a whole new dimension to working out together. Working out with your significant other heightens your physical and emotional connection. Your partnership motivates each other while working towards a common goal. The following workout is perfect to do at home or even while traveling, as it is all body weight exercises and requires no additional equipment. Start off by doing 10-15 reps of each exercise, working your way up to 3 rounds of this workout. Add in 30 seconds of cardio between each exercise, such as jogging in place, high knees, or shuttle runs to make your hearts grow stronger.

But did you know that separate workouts can actually be doing your relationship a disservice? Couples exercising together strengthen both their bodies and relationship. Working out as a couple can make the most important muscle of all stronger: the heart. Get these benefits of working out as a couple.
