Mix up your workout with a game of chance

If you keep your workouts fun and different, you won’t get bored and are much more likely to stick with them. One great way that you can do this is to introduce some game like elements into your workout routines.

A perfect example of how to this is using cards and chance to determine each exercise you do. To do this all you need is a deck of cards, and optionally some friends to compete against. In the deck of cards each suit is a different exercise. You can decide which exercises to assign for each suit, for example you might decide to use:

Hearts - Push-ups
Clubs - Squats
Spades - Lunges
Diamonds - Sit Ups

You can adjust the exercises depending on what equipment you have available and how intense you want the workout to be. The number value for each card represents how many of reps of each exercise you must complete. For example if you pull a 5 of Clubs, you must do 5 squats. The face value cards represent the following number of reps:

Jack - 10
Queen - 15
King - 20
Ace - 25

So a King of Diamonds is 20 sit-ups etc. You can rest for up to 30 seconds between each exercise, depending on how difficult it was. For example you should only need a short rest if you get 3 sit-ups, but if you pull an ace of spades and have to do 25 squats, you might need a little more rest.

If you are doing the workout by yourself you can set a timer and keep drawing new cards for the duration of your workout. If you are working out with a group you can compete against each other, don’t use the timer and just keep going until the last person going wins!

Have fun!
