But, today I didn't get up to run, and I knew I needed to do something. I've been teetering on the edge of complete slothdom, and I need to snap out of it! I wanted something quick and easy that I could do in my living room. Thanks to Google and my favorite lady Jillian, I found this:
Perfect, right? Easy, can be done at home, uses minimal equipment and it's something new! So, I got my cards, grabbed my 8lb dumbells and set up shop.
|This is my type of equipment list!|
OH.MY.GOD it was hard!
I actually thought at first that I would go through the deck a couple of times, but once was definitely enough for today. I used to think that I knew what muscle fatigue felt like, but seriously after drawing the 3rd spade card (pushups) in a row towards the end of the deck - my arms completely gave out! I literally couldn't do any more. So this means three things - 1) this is a good little workout; 2) I have definitely lost any strength that I once had; and 3) I need to do this again!
This workout is also really versatile because you can change the exercises to focus on other body parts if you want. And the element of surprise that comes with drawing the cards is fun (I was totally praying for low numbers at the end of the workout, "no 10's please! How about a 3?". Anyway, I really enjoyed this quick little workout.
Let me know if you try it out and what you think about it!
