DAY 18: Feel the burn!!!

And 1,2,3,4!!!!


Taking the idea from one of The Biggest Loser's Training Tips I had a creative workout today!
Take a deck of playing cards and assign different exercises to each suite.

  • HEARTS= crunches
  • CLUBS = Lunges
  • DIAMONDS = squats
  • SPADES= reverse lunges
After shuffling the deck flip over each card one by one while doing the corresponding exercise. The number on each card tells you how many to do! Face cards equal 10 reps and Aces mean you get a one minute break! Don't stop 'till you have completed the deck!

In this work out you will have done...
  • 85 crunches
  • 85 lunges
  • 85 squats
  • 85 reverse lunges on each leg!!!
It took me about 15 minutes to get through the deck and the girls loved doing it with me! Blue flipped the cards and Cricket worked out along side me while we all counted!

Working out can be fun if you mix it up!!!

man, I tried to work out today for the first time in a LONG time, and was not successful! I was doing a step video and Kate would not get off the step box!!! Maybe I should try your workout next time!
