Hey there peeps!
Quick post for today! OK so I went to the gym and took interval fitness with my friend Shannon. I actually teach this class every Friday but sometimes we fitness instructors just like to go and not have to think about what everyone else is doing and just get down and sweaty! WELL!!! Let me tell you what! The deck of cards work out delivered!!!!
Our trainer that day was Robin and she picked four moves and paired them up with each suit. So we had Burpees, One arm dumbbell rows, jump squats and warrior lunges. The focus is never on how fast we can do these moves but how well. GOOD FORM PEEPS!!! After 45 mins of non stop card flipping fun I had a killer burn on my Polar FT60 HRM and was drenched in sweat and wiped out and FELT AWESOME!!!!!
That’s a great burn for one class.
One of the great side effects of going to other instructors and trainers for a class is INSPIRATION!!!
I then came back that night to teach my 45 minute kettlebell class and guess what we did?!?!?!?!
THE DECK OF CARDS WORK OUT!!!
This time I paired the suits up with the following moves:
Hand Release Push Ups
I promise I shuffled the cards up over and over and some how it seemed that the burpees were all together HA HA!!! That’s how this workout rolls! Its awesome, at least we got them all out of the way.
Here is my art on the mirror! I often write with dry erase markers on the mirrors when we are doing moves for reps or AMRAP workouts. OH! and instructors who have to learn choreography like Body Combat or Step its a great way to write your notes and keep going if they are up on the mirror when you are learning new tracks!
So go grab a friend, a deck of cards, pick 4 moves and SWEAT!!!!!
