(The Best Years in Life) Somedays you need someone else to help motivate you to wok out and other days you simply want something completely new. Fix both problems with a partner workout. This routine requires another person but no more equipment than a medicine ball, allowing you exercise in a gym or get a change of scenery by going to a park.

Partner Decline Pushups
How high you lift the feet will affect the difficulty, so you may need to experiment a little to find the height that challenges both of you. Once one of you has completed at least 10 push-ups, switch positions and repeat with the other partner.
As you lower into lunge position, use both arms to perform a chest pass with the medicine ball. Holding the ball at chest-height, push both arms forward and release the ball. Return to the starting position and prepare to catch the ball when it is tossed back. The catching partner should always have both feet firmly planted and catch the ball away from their chest to prevent injury. Alternate legs and take turns lunging and tossing. Each person should perform five to 10 lunges per leg.
This workout is ideal if you and your partner are similar in strength, size, and stamina – but it is not mandatory. It is possible for one person to do fewer decline push-ups and an easier angle than their partner, but the medicine ball exercises work best if one partner is not significantly stronger than the other. Use a light enough weighted ball that the weakest partner can safely use. Aim for two to three sets.
