"Deck of cards" simple at-home bodyweight workout
Are you starting to find your quarantine workouts boring? Looking for a fun, motivating and quick full-body exercise routine you can do at home?
We're loving the deck of cards workout to mix up your usual sweat session.
Grab a deck of cards (or download a free app if you don't have one!)
Assign an exercise to each suit. Here's a nice beginners option:
Hearts: Sit ups
Diamonds: Push ups
Spades: Star jumps
Joker: Mountain climbers
Place the deck of cards face down. Flip the first card. The number on the card equals the number of reps of the exercise.
Number Cards: amount of reps (ex: 5 of hearts = 5 reps of sit ups)
Face cards: 13 reps
Aces: 15 reps
Joker: 20 reps
Keep flipping until the deck is complete!
Here are some ideas to mix this up even further:
— Partner workout. Use the same deck but assign different suit/exercise combinations to each person.
— EMOM. Choose more difficult exercises and flip a card every minute on the minute to give yourself some much-needed rest. The faster you complete the exercise the longer break you get.
— Add weights. 'Nuff said.
— Make it focused. Choose four leg exercises, four upper body exercises, or four core exercises to really feel the burn!
