Working out on your own is great, but sometimes teaming up for a few exercises can be a fun way to spice things up (can you tell I’m on a team kick this week since I’m back to soccer). Two of my favorite partner moves, the Palm Pat and Lean on Me, are from this month’s issue of SELF. But here’s one more from the stroller exercise class I taught today at the park to add to the list.

Equipment: a medicine ball, or rubber ball

How To Do It: Partner 1 stands facing partner holding the ball with arm extended over her head. Partner 2 stands with feet shoulder width apart. Partner 2 bends down into a mini-squat and explodes up into a vertical jump touching her right palm on the top of the ball, then returning to start position. Repeat for 10 quick jumps alternating arms, and then switch with partner. Aim for three sets.
