1) The “Lovebirds” Workout Routine
This is a great routine for those just starting out. It begins with 10 minutes of cardio (jogging in place), followed by 20 minutes of resistance training (push-ups and squats). It ends with 30 seconds of stretching per major muscle group (hamstrings, quads, etc.).
2) The “You Make My Heart Race” Workout
This workout is perfect for the beginner who wants to get in shape or for the person looking to surprise their special someone with a new look. It’s quick, easy, and requires no equipment! Ready? Let’s go!
First, do 20 jumping jacks. Next up is 10 push-ups. Once you’ve completed those two exercises, take a one-minute water break and then repeat the circuit as many times as you can in 15 minutes. If you really want to impress your sweetie, keep track of how many circuits you can complete in one day!
3) Cupid’s Arrow Workout Routine
The best part about the Cupid’s Arrow workout routine is that it is super simple. All you need is twenty minutes and just a little bit of space. Let’s take a look at how it works:
First, you will do five minutes of cardio exercises to get your blood flowing. This can be anything from jumping jacks to running in place or even using an exercise bike. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!
Next, you will do 10 reps each of bicep curls, squats and lunges. Do as many sets as you want until your muscles are burning. Then take two minutes to cool down and stretch. You can also try some yoga moves if you want to push yourself a little further! It’s important not to overdo it at first so that you don’t get discouraged and quit before starting any real progress toward getting fit this Valentine’s Day.
4) The “I Love You Beary Much” Workout
This workout routine is best for people who have been working out regularly but are looking for something different to spice things up. Once again, no equipment required – just your body weight and a little space on the floor! Let’s get started:
First, do 20 squats followed by 10 burpees. Next up is another set of 20 squats followed by 10 push-ups. Finish off with a final set of 20 squats and 10 sit-ups before taking a one-minute water.
