Valentine Family Exercise

Valentines Day is for everyone, not just couples. It is healthy to have active fun with family and friends too.

Monday's post Valentine Partner Pushups gives a fun partner exercise idea. Here are more variations for active fun with children and friends of many ages.

Babies and children love to move. They can hold their body weight. Get them started early. Don't let them lose this strength by making them sit still and eat. Get up from the table and play. That is Valentines Day love.

Try these with friends

This man is doing a partner handstand with his young daughter. It is a lot of good exercise and balance for both:

I will cover how to do this partner handstand in a future post. Send in your own photos of fun exercise with family and friends.
