Working Out Together Has A Lot Of Advantages

When planning your next date, consider doing a fun activity together. Everyone knows that having a gym buddy is a good companion that helps a lot of people stay accountable and dedicated to their fitness goals. So, it makes sense that more couples are looking to become each other’s, fitness partners.

Relationships usually take a lot of effort, especially when you both have your own and work stuff and compromises to tend to. However, when you find the right equilibrium of quality time together, a good relationship can positively impact your overall sense of well-being and improve your body and mind.

6 Tips of a workout plan:

  1. Warm up for five minutes with calisthenics. (planks, high knees, run in place, jumping jacks, mountain climbers..)
  2. Burpees- 4 sets (same as reverse crunches)
  3. Squats- 5 sets (same as push-ups)
  4. Push-ups- 5 sets (however many reps you can do that is challenging, but not until failure)
  5. Reverse crunches- 4 sets (do reps until you feel the burn but not until total failure)
  6. Cooldown & stretching- five minutes

Can Help Strengthen Your Relationship

Endorphins

Making a plan to exercise with your significant other can strengthen both your relationship and your body. There’s something special about sweating in the gym or on a hike together, as it provides quality, constructive time. The natural endorphin pheromones and post-workout glow will make you feel more attracted to each other, too.

Physical association

It can be a very bonding stage to be taught a new skill by your partner. It helps to build confidence. And the physical association created from helping each other with pull-ups or spotting with weights can continue long after the workout is done.

A good example to do together

A great way is that both of you can do twenty push-ups in a set but your partner can only do seven. That is no problem at all. As you perform your set, your partner rests. Then you rest while your partner does her set.

Experience a good workout with your partner

Remember that you and your significant other have different fitness levels and abilities. What she can do is great, but you may not be at her level, and vice versa. When you let go of all expectations you can enjoy the time together. The workout can be fun in a way that you never experience when training alone.

Does this mean that you have to exercise together all the time? Not at all! You can still hit the weights as your partner goes spinning. But if you want to experience the benefits of working out together, schedule a day or two each month. Get sweaty and have fun!
