Invest in making the best of you – mentally, physically, and spiritually
Don’t have a workout buddy? Look to the one with whom you cuddle at night. Exercising together can become an important and stimulating part of a relationship. We all know how easy it is to choose happy hour after work instead of an elliptical. Using your partner as your workout buddy can take your relationship to a new level, where you actually become excited about skipping drinks after work.
Try the workout detailed below. It doesn’t take long, and you’ll love the way you feel afterward.
Start with a warmup like running, walking, or even better a dynamic mobility routine (try Magnificent Mobility) until you get a good sweat going. Typically 10-15 minutes of warmup is sufficient. Working out together, you can help each other with proper form and encouragement during the toughest exercises.
Try the exercise circuit below, doing between 8-12 reps of each exercise. Do the full cycle three times with a minute rest in between. If you feel you can’t handle the last set, get as many reps as you can in each exercise. For the stretches, hold each for 30 seconds. Your parter can help count out the reps.

As a bonus, when you're done with this quick and effective workout, you'll have the time to top it off with a different type of quickie.
