Partner Workout: Pilates Half Roll Down with Jenny Milkowski

Ready for a fun Pilates move that’ll whip you into shape? We thought so! Weight Loss Coach and Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour teams up with TV Personality Jenny Milkowski to show you an exercise that serves double-duty by challenging both your core muscles and your shoulders.

All you need for this awesome workout is a buddy and a light pair of dumbbells. Okay, and a good attitude is optional, but highly recommended!

Start seated, hold hands and leeeeean back. Actually it’s more of a roll back, but you get the idea! Keep your heels on the ground, abs in tight, then press your weight above your head. Reverse the movement to come back and go again. Don’t forget to switch sides at some point.

Happy Lifting!

Partner Workout: Tricep Toe Touches with Jenny Milkowski

Biceps tend to steal the exercise spotlight most of the time, but what about the muscles that run the length of the back of your arms? Tightening up those triceps is equally important when it comes to the overall appearance of your lady guns! That’s why Weight Loss Coach Stephanie Mansour and TV Personality Jenny Milkowski are here to show you and your best bud how to get tank top ready together!

Roll out your exercise mats cause we’re staying low to the ground with these tricep toe touches!

Begin seated, knees bent, feet on the ground with your partner mirroring you.

Now place your palms on the ground behind you with your fingertips pointing toward your glutes. Keep your abs in tight as you press your bum up and off the floor.

From here you can perform a few triceps dips on your own to warm-up.

When you and your partner are ready you’re going to lift one leg off the ground each, touch the soles of your feet together, and then proceed to dip down and back up.

That’s one rep! Try to do at least five on one side before switching legs.

You’ll feel the burn pretty instantly; have fun with it!
