Playing cards...and sweating

Want a little something different for your workout? Grab a deck of cards and breathe, burn and sweat through this "fun" workout  My class this morning loved it...and hated it...but mostly walked out feeling like they got a fantastic workout.

Here's the deal 
(haha...get dealing cards...ugh):

Spades=Push ups
Diamonds=Jump Squats
Clubs=Kettlebell swings
Hearts=Sit ups
Jokers=20 burpees including a push up-yay!

Shuffle that deck and get to work. Whatever card you pull, do the number of reps the card indicates of the exercise matching the suit. Jacks=11, Queens=12, King=13 and Aces=14.

It took us about 30 minutes to work our way through the deck...yup...all 54 cards (including your two jokers).

When you finish you will have done 104 of every movement (and really 144 push ups since you have 40 extras included in your burpees).
