For those of you in relationships, this workout program will serve as an intimacy-builder. Not presently attached? Getting fit quick can serve to remedy that. Got someone in your sights? Invite them to share this workout with you for a few weeks to see if any sparks fly.
This workout calls for you and your sweetheart to hit the iron together, allowing you to share in the work, not just the rewards.
By training together, which is not always common, couples get to spend a little extra time together. Since one person is usually more into working out than the other, this also allows the less enthusiastic person to share in something that’s very important to the other. Worst-case scenario is that both parties end up getting fitter and leaner. Best case is that they become permanent workout partners.
This program contains two dedicated workouts—a push day and a pull day—that couples can do together to build muscle and burn fat but it is bolstered by days that call for individual, detail-oriented work. The program includes gender-specific workouts that address areas of greater concern for each: guys will do a little extra work for arms, while gals will tackle a few more moves for their hips and glutes.
An optional “challenge day,” replete with both high-intensity and static moves, is presented to add a little friendly competition to the weekly schedule.
