There are four suits in a deck of cards so you can start by picking four exercises. For example:
clubs- jumping jacks
diamonds- push ups
hearts- jump squats
Whenever you flip over a card, do that number of the exercise listed for the suit. So if you flipped over a 7 of diamonds, you would do 7 push ups. You can make up a number for the face cards too. You could keep it at 10 or be adventurous and do 15 or 20 for every Jack, Queen or King! Continue this way until the deck runs out.
If you wanted more variety in this workout, you could make a list of 52 exercises. Have that list next to the deck of cards and every time you flip a card over, do that number of reps for which ever exercise you are on. For example:
2. jumping jacks
3. push ups
4. jump squats
This list would continue on to 52. You would flip the first card (let’s say its a 5 of hearts) and do 5 burpees. The next card is a 9 of diamonds so you would do 9 jumping jacks and so on. In this workout, the number is the only thing that matters. Don’t pay attention to the suit.
Another way I like to get a workout in at home is by using a DVD. There are so many different options of workout DVD’s on the market. You can find everything from boot camp to zumba to yoga. These are generally inexpensive and pretty easy to find. The key is finding a good instructor.
