Fuel the FITness Fire! Day One

fuelthefitness-partnerworkout-webSuper super excited about our 14 day Partner Challenge.  Originally a series for #fitfebruary, it can be adapted for any time of year for you and your spouse!

This is the first move – high five sit ups. Every day I will build on the different workouts. Now this is a partner challenge so feel free to do it with a friend, a kiddo, a spouse! The idea is you are working together to get the job done – during the month of February.

When our challenge ends make sure you celebrate together your hard work with a date out (or girls night out or ice cream fun with the kids!) Reward yourself for sticking with me!

Day 1 – 10 High Five Sit Ups!

Fuel the FITness Fire: Day 13

We made it to the last day – 13 exercises + 1 Date is REQUIRED today friends.

You earned it for completing the Fuel the FITness Fire challenge!!!!!

Post your post workout selfie today!!!

FINAL EXERCISE!!!

1. 10 high five sit ups
2 30 seconds back to back sit
3. 15 connected jumping jacks
4. 10 each high plank shoulder taps (you tap their shoulders 10 times and they have to do 10 taps on yours too!)
5. 10 medicine ball passes!
6. 15 Lunge rotations with ball pass (each pass = 1)
7. 10 plank jacks with squats combo (see the video – this one took us a minute to get right!) Each person does 10 plank jacks and then 10 squat jumps.
8. Twist and pass – I show you several ways to do this in the video. You can just twist and then pass, you can twist while your partner twists with the ball, and you can add in a shoulder press too! Each person should do 10 catch/twists!
9. 15 connected squats (oh so cute!)
10. High plank, low 5! Give me 20 low five’s altogether. And hang in there friends….we are so close!
11. Back to back ball pass! Sit in squat (watch your knees over your toes – Jacob needs to work on his form wink emoticon ) and pass the ball overhead 15 times.
12. Partner Bridges- push your feet together and push up to work those glutes. And watch your kids think you are playing a game with them
13 In/Out Criss Cross Feet – lean back (hands up makes it a bit harder) and criss cross those feet. 15 in/outs altogether and you are done!

Now go celebrate with a nice dinner out 🙂
