1. Matthor

Deck Of Cards

This is a great workout! You assign an exercise to a suit and randomly draw 24 cards and perform the allocated exercise for the reps shown on the card. If your workout isn't intense enough shuffle the deck and draw another 24 cards.

My Line Up:

  • Ace = 12 reps
  • Face = 10 reps
  • 5-10 = Number Shown
  • 2-4 = 5 reps

Bit of a marathon workout and was dripping in sweat by the end. HR was generally 160-170 with big peaks following the rowing. I got the first joker around 3/5ths in and then as I only have one I finished with the final row sprint - 1min 48 and 1min 54 respectively. After each of those on the crappy row machine without proper resistance I was pretty gone.

Once finished I did maybe 5 minutes skipping at an easy rate, just to loosen up.

Just had a decent session this evening after this mornings 90 minute yoga session.

My arms and legs were pretty tired earlier from this morning and I've been on keto for 5 days to drop water so this wasn't the most intense workout, but I certainly felt like it.
