5 different exercises couples can do together to keep fit

  • Going for a walk

Taking a walk as a couple can be very interesting as you can go better distance beyond a person doing it alone. When going on a walk, you should walk briskly which is different from the usual way we walk.

To make your walk interesting, you can use that moment to discuss certain issues or share jokes with each other so as not to get tired early but take into consideration the level of the strength of your partner.

  • Partner Push up

Doing push-ups as a couple can be a bit different from the usual push-up a person does because in this type, your partner is there to apply resistance.

How do you do this?

The first person should be in the position of a push-up, which means you lie on your tummy, elbows bent, palm on the floor, your legs straight and you are set.

The other partner will stand above the one on the floor and place his or her hand on the upper back of the partner.

As the second person is pushing up, the other partner’s hand works as resistance pressing the body back gently. When the partner feels fatigued, the other partner can take the position of push-up.

  • Push up High five

This is another fitness exercise just like the push-up. When doing this, couples should face each other arm length apart in a push-up position.

Do a push-up with your elbow bending 90 degrees, go back to starting position and then give each other a high five with your arms stretched straight. Continue to do this until you feel fatigued.
