Doing it Right: Couple’s workout February 27, 2013

(NECN) – We’re using the buddy system in our doing it right segment as we check out a workout that makes two better than one.

Is there safety in numbers when it comes to exercise? Well, 94-percent of people who worked out as a couple are more likely to continue.

Leanne created a workout for herself and her husband, who is a former professional hockey player who’s won the Stanley Cup!

Couples Workout:
• Rotations with Bands – 12-15 reps on each side, do three sets
• Cable Rows with Squats – 12-15 reps, do three sets
• Push Ups with Ball Roll – do as many as you can, modify with knee push up if needed
• Sit Ups with Ball Toss – do as many as you can
If doing exercises isn’t your thing, what are other fitness activities you could do with your partner?

Outdoor activities like skiing, hiking and rock wall climbing.
