Sweating With Your Sweetie

Love is in the air, but don't let those boxes of chocolate confuse you—February is also American Heart Month and we all know the key to any healthy body is exercise. Spend some quality time with your significant other this month with these workouts from Becky Fox of Fox Fitness in Knoxville. Here's a taste of what our February issue has to offer. (For three more great moves, pick up this month's magazine!)

Partner Row
Works: Back
Stand facing each other with feet hip width apart and knees slightly bent. Have your partner hold the middle of the band while you grab the handles, holding arms straight out. Then slowly pull the elbows back toward the belly button until the back muscles contract. Return to start and repeat for a full set. Switch places and let your partner give it a try!
(Exercise can be performed 12-16 times. Start with one set and work your way up to three.)



Partner Pull
Works: Shoulders, Back, Abs

Have your partner stand with feet slightly staggered and arms straight out in front of his body. Grab at his wrist and pull down while they resist. The key is for your partner to try and keep his arms in place. Complete for about 30 seconds to a minute and then switch places. (Exercise can be performed 12-16 times. Start with one set and work your way up to three.)

Great idea Becky. I'm sure that by working out together with our partners, we will get lots of benefits. For example, we can spend more time together and we can get deeper connection. I should try this… Thank you.

such an unusual idea, but I have to admit that this is really interesting.just like what Aldo said, the connection between the partners could be increased from this activity. I think this could be a good way to allows the partners monitor their healthy lifestyle each other.
