LET’S PLAY THE CARD GAME!

Hey everyone!

I am definitely a person that needs variety and a PLAN when it comes to being at home (which I am realizing now that I’ve been in isolation for 5 days…), so that being said,  I’ve dug up some of my old plans from my trainer back in 2018 (Thanks Tiffany!!!) and I’m going to share them with you!

For today’s workout, I thought it would be fun to try out something that is a game of chance…..

The Card Game Workout 

For this you will need a deck of cards (or 2 if you’d like???). Shuffle the cards and place them in a pile in front of your workout space!

For the reps: take the number on the card and DOUBLE IT. When you’re required to do something with time, take the number on the card and ADD A ZERO (indicated below)! The numbers for J, Q and K are 11, 12 and 13.

The first time you pick a suit, you do the 1st exercise in that list, 2nd time you pick the same suit you do the next exercise and so on. Once you have finished all 3 exercises in that suit, you start at the top of your exercise list and continue!

** For and example, scroll to the bottom**

ALL A =  rest one minute

Hearts = ARMS

– Jumping Jack Push-ups

– Walkouts (aka inchworms)

– Hi-lo Planks

Clubs = ABS

– Hollow Body Rocks

– Plank Hold (add 0 for time)

– Single Leg Sit Ups

Diamonds = LEGS

– Double Pulse Squat Jumps

– Jump Lunges

– Squat Hold (add 0 for time)

Spades = TOTAL

– Burpees to floor

– Mountain Climbers (add 0 for time)

– Snap Jumps (start in plank, jump both legs in to hands and back to plank)

EXAMPLE 

CARD 1 = 2 of hearts

          • You will do 4 reps of Jumping Jack Pushups

CARD 2 = 5 of diamonds

          • You will do 10 reps of Double Pulse Squat Jumps

CARD 3 = 10 of hearts (It’s second time you picked hearts so you do the next exercise)

          • You will do 20 reps of Walkouts (ouchhhhhh haha)

CARD 4 = J of Spades

          • You will do 22 reps of Burpees to the Floor

CARD 5 = 6 of Spades

          • You add a 0 and do 60 sec of Mountain Climbers

Hope you enjoy this workout. I always find it harder than it looks on paper haha! It’s a sweaty workout that will keep you guessing because you don’t know what’s coming next! Have fun!
