20 minute ab workout to do with a partner

Couple workouts are scientifically proven to be more successful than a lone-workout. Personal trainers Claudia Newland and Nicola Addison, who are also a couple, finish their 4-part series with Healthista with a 20 minute abs workout

If you’re not familiar with the phenomenon of couple workouts, you will see the benefits in the sheer strength of Louise Thompson’s abs. The Made In Chelsea star got together with her boyfriend Ryan Libbey on the screens a couple of years ago, and from there, we have been bombarded with their sickeningly cute workouts with each other. We may be a tad jealous.

????????Causing trouble with him????????Thanks @Ryan.libbey for teaching me to tense all the time and to quit my menacing drinking habits. I will always choose the man who taught me something over the man who bought me something ???????? Sometimes I take exercise too seriously, the other 3/4 I'm in fits of hysterics and totally euphoric. This video shows some basic exercises you can do anywhere in the world ????!our next one is on the way ???? and is much more intense ???????????? watch this space ! I think I got a bit thicker since being so greedy and eating 3 x mega three course meals a day on my travels ! Looking forward to returning home tomorrow – to stop being a little piglet ???? and to resume ???????? p.s. @samthompsonuk I'm hiding all my swimwear in the safe. ????

The pair motivate each other, and Louise has made it clear Ryan was a huge influence in her fitness transformation, encouraging her with compliments. ‘Before I met Ryan I definitely took exercise less seriously. It was always a temporary solution’, she told OK! Now, couple workouts have created a deeper bond between them. ‘We have a lot of fun in the gym together, I love it. They say that the pheromones released make you more attracted to someone so maybe that plays a role in why we’re so obsessed with each other’, she said.

They aren’t alone, as a recent survey of 1,007 Brits conducted by Be a Better You found that 42 per cent of couples work out together, either in the gym or at home. It has actually been proven to improve your workout success rate, as those who workout together in the gym have a 6-per cent drop out rate, compared to those who work out alone with a 43 per cent drop-out rate, according to a Channel 4 documentary ‘How To Get Fit Fast’.

20 minute abs workout for couples

Personal trainers Nicola Addison, who owns Eqvvs Training gym, and Claudia Newland have teamed up with Healthista and created a four-part couple workout video series. Nicola is a celebrity trainer, helping shape the bodies of Elle Macpherson, Erin O’Connor and Daisy Lowe, so we are taking note!

Previously, they have taken us through a 20 minute HIIT routine, 10 minute butt and back workout, and shown us how to stretch with a buddy. This week is the final video so its time to blast those abs in a 20-minute workout with a warm up and cool down included.
