Great idea from my kettlebell circuit class
Friday, July 11, 2014
Today we did a variety of exercises based on a deck of cards. I really enjoyed the surprise of it - not knowing what would be next - and then the thought hit me that I could do the same thing at home, as could you, my spark friends. You would need a timer for face cards. Here's how we did it today, but you could change the types of exercises around:
Face cards - 30 seconds of calisthenics (the leader gave us burpees, mountain climbers and jump rope to choose from)
Aces - 30 kettlebell swings or 15 medicine ball slams (these are full body weight bearing options)
Diamonds - 3 ab options
Spades - swings (legs)
Clubs - presses; military or push ups OK (shoulders/chest)
Hearts - Rows (back)
You do as many reps for the suits as the number on the card.
The time flew by!
