Grab a deck of cards for an impromptu home workout.
(by Eric Cressey)
I get asked a lot about travel, or at-home workouts. A while back, I introduced my standard answer: get a deck of cards! Assign an exercise to each suit in the deck, and let the number dictate reps for each choice (face cards are always 10). Here is an awesome workout you can bring with you anywhere:
Spades: reverse lunges (alternating legs)
Clubs: single-leg bridges
Diamonds: prone bridge arm march
Aces: 10 burpees
Jokers: 10 jump squats
If you have a TRX or pull-up bar, I recommend making one suit TRX rows, and jokers a doable amount of pull-ups.
Turn over a card, and GO! See how fast you can make it through the deck, and try to beat your time every workout.
Here are a couple of video links to help with some of the more unfamiliar (in name, anyway) exercises. ~Teri
