We know. This cool weather makes you want to just cozy up beside your partner all day long. While the bed looks a little too irresistible now, it’s best to still make an effort to #Wellnesize your bodies. To #Wellnessize is to take small steps to wellness such as to continue doing regular exercises even during lazy rainy days. You don’t even have to hit the gym to work up some sweat!
Try these indoor workout routines with your partner to keep yourselves warm this season:
1. 360 Ball Pass
Sit back-to-back with heels on the floor. Pass the ball to your left and receive the ball from your right. Make sure you keep your spines straight while moving the ball around. Do at least 10 passes to make sure you work out your chest muscles and warmup arms.
2. Double Chair Dips
Make those triceps firm! Start with the position as shown on the first image. Together, slowly lower yourselves until your elbows form a 90-degree angle. Do 3 sets with 15 repetitions per set (or until one of you gives out).
3. Traditional Plank or Two-Layered Plank
What’s a home workout without good old planking to strengthen your core? For beginners, you may stick to the traditional planks and do it side-by-side.
If you intend to make it more challenging, try the two-layered plank below. It adds more weight for your man and tests the resistance of your woman.
4. Couple Wall Sits
Build up the endurance of your glutes, calves and quadriceps together with the couple wall sits. Lean against each other’s backs for support. Bend down until your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Hold out for as long as you can. Repeat 3 times and see if you can hold the position longer as you go along.
5. Push-Ups and Squats
A quick way to enhance your whole body’s muscle definition and improve your upper and lower body strength is to include push-ups and squats in your workout regimen.
Be each other’s motivation to stay consistent with your workout routine. There is no better inspiration to encourage you to #Wellnesize yourself every day than your loving partner.
