Ab exercises for Couples

Ab exercises for couples

We may dream of washboard abs like Jessica Simpson or Matthew McConaughey but, let’s face it, we can’t always find the motivation to push ourselves through a round of ab exercises at the end of the day.

One not-so-secret motivational strategy is to exercise with your sweetheart. Couples usually find that they are more motivated to exercise when they do it together. They hit the gym more regularly and enjoy a more playful, active lifestyle.
