Weekend Workout #29

OK, this is it, the final Weekend Workout of 2012.  I hope you have enjoyed the workouts I have provided for you.  I am going to do my best to try and put videos with the workouts next year.

***This workout will require that you have a deck of cards, and is best done with a group of people.

Shuffle the deck of cards.  This can be done with 1 exercise or up to 5 (examples of exercises: bodyweight squats, dips, pullups, burpees, jumping jacks, lunges, crunches, pushups).  Each suite will represent a certain exercise, and the jokers will count as 50 reps of the 1 exercise or the 5th exercise (if using 5 exercises).  

Each person grabs a card; the suite determines the exercise/s and the number determines the reps per exercise.  Cards higher than 10 can be set at any value (ie: Jack 11, Queen 12, King 15, Aces 20).

If doing this workout alone, opt to complete as many exercises as you can in 20-30 minutes.  If doing this with a group of 3-5 others, aim to finish the deck of cards.

I hope you find this workout to be as fun as I thought it was.  You can use this workout during family gathering, parties, or when you are looking to add some spontaneity to your workout.

Good luck!
