Let’s Play Cards!

No gym required, just your family and a bit of effort. You will need a deck of regular playing cards.

The intent is to help the family spend good time together by sweating together! Plus we’ll all get in a little shape. Please use modified positions just to complete the exercise if needed.

The Workout:

  1. Grab the deck of cards and choose the youngest person the shuffle it.
  2. Have the family stand in a small circle facing each other with the shuffled deck of cards in the middle.
  3. Have the 2nd youngest person pull the first card and show it to the group. Each card has a particular value to repetitions of an exercise. For example, a “3” card means we all have to do 3 repetitions for the exercise, an “8” card would mean 8 repetitions would have to be done. However if it’s a face card we all have to do 12 repetitions and aces are worth 15 repetitions.
  4. Whoever pulls the card picks the exercise and then the entire family does it together. You may pick from these exercises below:
    • Air Squats
    • Lunges
    • Jumping Jacks
    • Overhead arm claps
    • Pushups
    • Leg lifts
  5. Once the exercise is completed then the person on the left will repeat the card pull.
  6. See how many cards you can go through in 25 minutes, and challenge you self to be last time!
