Deck of Cards- You can do this solo, with a friend, or with a group of friends!
Use a deck of playing cards as a tool for designing and performing this workout routine.
Each suit in the deck represents a different exercise, and the value of the card determines the number of repetitions or duration of the exercise. For example, you might assign push-ups to the hearts suit, squats to the diamonds suit, and burpees to the spades suit. Then, you can draw a card from the deck and do the corresponding exercise based on the suit and value of the card. For example, if you draw the 5 of hearts, you would do 5 push-ups.
To create your own deck of cards workout, you can start by deciding on the exercises you want to include and assigning them to the different suits in the deck. You can then shuffle the deck and draw cards one at a time to determine the exercises you will do and the number of repetitions or duration for each exercise. You can also add additional rules or variations to make the workout more challenging, such as drawing multiple cards in a row or using jokers as wild cards that allow you to choose any exercise.
