Partner Training Exercise #5: Bird dog with Partner Press

Category : Exercise

This is a partner variation which increases the intensity of a basic core exercise: the quadruped bird dog.

Begin on hands and knees facing your partner.

Raise your right hand and left knee off of the floor, and extend your hand out to make contact with your partner’s (palm to palm).

Both partners press against their partner’s hand with equal pressure as to not allow any movement…this is an isometric exercise (which means there is NO VISIBLE MOVEMENT).

The more pressure applied, the more you will have to engage your core muscles so that you don’t get pushed over.

Then try it on the other side using  left hands.


At XO Fitness, we offer partner training. It’s fun and more economical than training on your own.
