The partner sit-up and twist is a great exercise to spike your metabolism and keep your heart rate sprinting during a workout. It challenges the muscles of the abdominal wall as well as the obliques to help you carve a solid core. To perform this exercise grab a partner and sit on the ground facing each other with knees bent. Next, hook your feet together, place your fingertips behind your ears, and lay back. Then simultaneously sit up and rotate your torso until your elbow touches your partner's coinciding elbow. Sit back and then sit up again turning in the other direction (Rep 1- right elbow to right elbow. Rep 2 - left elbow to left elbow). Perform this exercise for 30 repetitions at home, at the gym, or come to a bootcamp class at Battery Park as Shermaine and Melissa pictured above did!
