  • Repeat for a set number of reps, supporting each other through the movement.

2. Medicine Ball Pass:

  • Sit facing each other with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • Hold a medicine ball or any weighted object and twist to your right to pass it to your partner.
  • Your partner receives the ball and twists to their right to pass it back.
  • Continue this twisting motion for a set number of reps, engaging your core.

3. Plank High Fives:

  • Both partners get into a plank position facing each other, balancing on your forearms and toes.
  • Alternate lifting your right hands to high-five your partner while maintaining a stable plank.
  • Repeat the high-five motion with your left hands.
  • Continue for a set duration to challenge your core and upper body strength.

4. Wheelbarrow Push-Ups:

  • One partner gets into a push-up position, while the other holds their ankles.
  • The partner in the push-up position performs a push-up.
  • After completing the push-up, they walk their hands forward, and the partner holding their ankles follows.
  • Repeat this motion for a set number of push-ups, switching roles if desired.

5. Leg Throws:

  • Lie on your backs with your heads at opposite ends.
  • One partner holds the other’s ankles while the second partner lifts their legs toward the ceiling.
