Hey Guys! I just finished testing out Jillian Michaels’ Card WorkOut
(Which you can find here on my ExerciseDiary page)
The way it works is:
hearts=lunges Clubs=Reverse Crunch Diamonds=PushUps Spades=Crunches
Card Numbers = Repititions and all Face Cards=10
Aces= 1 minute break
Essentially you go through the entire deck to get a pretty good core work out with some of the larger muscle groups mixed in. Now, I just finished — it took me about 29 minutes to complete and I was definitely sweating in the end.
I did, however, modify it just a little bit. Instead of making face cards equal to 10, I left them at 11, 12, 13 and did modifications of the basic movements. So whenever I got a face card I turned my lunges into squats (or lunge-knee ups), I turned my reverse crunches into flutter kicks, I turned my push ups (which I did mostly modify to pushups from the knees) into 1 minute planks, and I turned my crunches into crunches with punches, side crunches, and jack knives.
I don’t think I’d call this a real intense work out but it’s something you can do if you have a limited amount of space and don’t want to make a lot of noise. About halfway through the deck I started thinkingI really don’t want to do this. My muscles hurt. Ugh I suck at lungesso it is a pretty nice feeling when you flip over that last card. It’s like seeing an absolute sign of “You didn’t give up.”
