Deck of Cards Workout

Here's a Sunday afternoon workout for you!  (Thanks to Kristal - the leader of boot camp - for providing this workout.)  My husband and I did this workout today - it was definitely not an easy game.
All you need is a deck of cards and a little space. 
Spades = burpees
Clubs = mountain climbers
Hearts = push ups
Diamonds = squats
Face cards = 10 reps.
Ace = 11 reps.
Joker = 10 jumping jacks
Ex: Drawing a 2 of hearts = 2 push ups.  Drawing a jack of spades = 10 burpees.  As soon as you finish one card, turn over the next card or get someone to turn them over for you.  I don't know about you, but when I'm in the middle of a workout, my brain doesn't work - so I suggest writing out a chart or writing it out on dry erase to refer to you as turn over cards. 
You can adapt the workout to fit your needs.  Exchange something for sit-ups or jumping jacks.  Turn up your music and keep going!


  1. There's an app for that! Try RipDeck, a deck of cards iPhone workout app.

    Let us know your fav exercises to do with it and we may feature your custom workout and blog on our In-App News, Facebook and Twitter.

  2. Thanks for telling me about RipDeck! I enjoyed using it for a workout and actually posted a review on the blog.


I love getting comments and feedback from you!
