Curious about TikTok? Tiktok is a social media platform where users share a range of videos including comedy, dance, education, and much more.

GetSetUp has recently created a TikTok account to post and share special moments with learners and other older adults. We recently posted our first challenge - The Plank Challenge with our Yoga Guide Kristina.

This challenge is meant to encourage learners to participate! All you need to do is duet Kristina’s video on TikTok with your best plank. What is a duet? It’s simply a recording of your own video next to someone else’s video.

How To Make A Video Duet

A video duet is when you record your own video alongside someone else's. It’s much simpler than you might think.

One of TikTok’s biggest and most unique features is duets. Duets allow you to record your own video alongside someone else’s.

If you would like to try duetting a video on TikTok, you first need to download the TikTok app on the App Store or Google Play, then follow the simple instructions below:

Follow These Simple Steps To Duet Your TikTok Video

  1. Go on the TikTok app and find the video you want to duet with.

2. At the bottom of the sidebar menu on the right, tap the arrow button - this is the Share button.

3. At the bottom of the "Share to" menu that pops up, tap "Duet."

4. Tap the red button at the bottom of the screen to start recording your video. Your video will be on the left, while the existing video will be playing on the right.

5. When you're finished, tap the checkmark at the bottom right of the screen.

6. Check your duet to make sure it's to your liking, then proceed to add a description of your video with relevant hashtags such as #GetSetUp or #TikTokOver50

7. Post your video!

Then watch as people watch and like your video. See if your friends can duet your video too or make a cooler duet.
