Outdoor Partner Workout w/ Citrus&Gold

I had a super fun weekend collaborating with Akansha Agarwal from Citrus and Gold. It’s only fitting that my first collaboration be with Akansha, since she she inspired me to start a fitness blog.

For our collaboration we completed a full body workout with 7 body-weight partner exercises that can be done anywhere. All you need is each other! This workout may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. It should be fun so don’t forget to smile, laugh, and enjoy being active together! 

Check out our workout below and don’t forget to follow Akansha’s blog and Instagram! Also, check out a quickie video of our workout here. Yes I know, we could have better form… but we were having too much fun to notice! Haha oops!

Leg Raise Throw Down
2 sets each partner with 10-15 reps.
Lie on your back on the floor with your legs fully extended out in front of you. Your partner should stand with one foot on either side of your head with her knees slightly bent. Hold your partner’s ankles and lift both of your legs up together. Your partner will push your feet from your ankles back to parallel level with the floor. Don’t let your legs touch the floor.

Plank Burpees

Lie on on the floor with your back flat on the ground and legs extended. Lift your legs off the ground around 35 degrees. You can place your hands under your glutes for more support. Have your partner jump over your legs side-ways 15 times.

Glute Bridge
3 sets with 5-10 reps
Have you and your partner lie on your backs with your feet up, knees bent 90 degrees. Rest your feet against each others and push. Use the push to help lift your glutes off the ground. Put your arms flat on the floor next to you for support. Squeeze your glutes at the top!

Jump Lunge & Clap

Perform a lunge and jump into the next lunge. After jumping into the lunge, clap your partner’s hand. Repeat by jumping into the next lunge with the other foot. You and your partner should have alternating feet i.e. while your right leg is behind you, her right leg should be in front of her.

Push Ups
3 sets with 10 reps
Get into push-up position with your legs wide apart and have your partner hold your ankles. Complete a push up at the same time.
