Spring Break Deck of Cards Workout

Here is a fun workout to do with your friends or family!  All you need is a deck of cards to get started!  You can do one, two, or all four boards (or any combination of the four).  It’s very simple…just flip a card and do the exercise that matches the suit.  The number on the card is the number of reps you will complete.  Face cards are equal to 10 reps and aces can be 1 or 11-you get to choose!  Before you get started, make sure to warm up for 5-7 minutes by walking, doing jumping jacks, hamstrings, squats, lunges, etc.  Stretch for 5 minutes when you are done! HAVE FUN!!!
