Partner Row

You'll get an upper-back workout while your partner works her torso muscles.

Have your partner assume a plank position, balancing on forearms and balls of feet. Using good form (back straight, knees behind toes), squat down and pick up her legs. Leaning forward from your hips, bend your knees slightly, and extend your arms down at your sides. This is the start position.

Keeping your back straight, abs tight, and elbows close to your body, squeeze your shoulder blades together and pull your elbows straight back, lifting your partner's body up. Your partner should contract her torso and lower-body muscles to stay straight. As you lift her, she should pivot from her shoulders, not her back or hips. Hold for a second and then slowly extend your arms back down.
