It seems like whenever the weather gets warmer, I get excited to do Deck of Cards workouts! I have blogged about Deck of Cards workouts before, but I am doing it again because they are so fun!
(In case you missed them.... Low Impact DOC, A DOC For Every Occasion, My Go To DOC, Design Your Own DOC, Upper Body/Core DOC. )
I was going to run on Saturday, but it looked so windy that I chickened out! Even though the sun was shining, I wanted to stay inside. And I was feeling... soft. The kind of soft the running isn't going to fix. The kind of soft that push ups, pull ups, kettle bell swings, and PLANKING will fix!
I went through the deck two times. Here are the workouts:
*Jumping jacks were done in multiples of 10 divided by 2. So an eight of hearts was 40 jumping jacks. It's a brain workout too!
*Bicycle crunches were doubled. So the nine of diamonds was 18 crunches
420 jumping jacks
168 bicycle crunches
84 kettle bell swings
84 push ups
84 deep air squats
84 plank w/ knee tucks
84 plank w/ shoulder tap
6 minute planks
36 assisted close grip pull ups
I made myself NOT CHEAT during this workouts. Sometimes I cheat and look ahead at what is coming up. Why? Because I am a control freak. Also, if I see that there are a lot of the same exercises in a row, I will shuffle the cards. I know, I am sneaky. But I didn't do any of that during this workout. Not even when THIS happened during Workout #2...
Yup, I had to do 35 burpees in a row.
