Fun Workout With A Friend

Nothing Is A Better Workout Motivator Than To Have A Bud Who's Right There With You Every Step Of The Way.

Do three sets of each exercise shown here, resting 30 seconds between each set. Because these are low-stress exercises, your muscles don't require recovery time. Do these isometrics daily, and your muscles will start to show change within two or three weeks!

ARMS

Also known as the "gimme back my shirt" exercise sometimes performed with your younger sis: You grab the end of a towel, while your friend takes the other end. Both of you pull as hard as you can for 10 to 20 seconds. This exercise tones the muscles of your arms and hers at the same time.

SHOULDERS & CHEST

Sit facing your friend. She bends her arms at a 90-degree angle in front of her, while you place your outstretched arms inside her elbows as shown. You apply pressure outward, and she pushes her elbows inward. Hold for 10 to 20 seconds. This is two exercises: You're working your chest, while your bud is working her upper back.

THIGHS & BUTTOCKS

Sit facing your friend with your feet flat and your arms at your sides. With your knees placed inside hers as shown, apply pressure outward while she pushes inward. Maintain constant pressure for 10 to 20 seconds. Basically what you're doing is a manual Thighmaster -- You're firming your butt and outer thighs, while your bud's working her inner thighs.
