I really really like this weeks workout and I think you will too!  This is a great way to do intense cardio while building muscular strength and endurance.

Grab a deck of cards and a timer.  Remove the Jokers.  There should be 52 cards in the deck, count them!  Shuffle the deck thoroughly and place it face down.  Pull a card and complete your choice of exercise for 30 seconds from the chart below based on the suit of the card.

If this seems like a lot, I did some math that will ease your mind, maybe…

52 cards x 30 seconds per card = 1,560 seconds

1,560 seconds/60 seconds per minute = 26 minutes

26 minutes of work! not bad! right!?

Correct me if I am miscalculating.

Be sure to rest as needed and have water within arms reach.  This workout will get your heart racing and muscles burning!

Please contact me with any questions.

I hope this helps someone, somewhere

  1. Does the number on the card you pull represent the number of reps in the set that need to be done or is the number irrelevant??
