I found this over at a wrestling message board and it?s a workout that some of older professional wrestlers used to use (sometimes they used more than one deck of cards though.)
The crux is that you get a deck of cards, shuffle them and then do as described below?
OK, folks…a really easy version to remember, and one taught to me by my dad, Billy Robinson…
1-10 equals number; Face Cards = 15, Aces = 25.
Total = 125 reps of each exercise
Hearts are pushups,
Diamonds = free squats/Hindu squats
Clubs = crunches
Spades = sit-ups.
Spades could also be step-ups onto a chair / bench.
NOTE: You HAVE to stand up immediately after completing each card!
Goal: Do the entire deck in less than 35 minutes…
Also a slight modification I have made is that jokers= 30 reps of any exercise.
I know it?s a bad workout as it neglects body parts etc, and is flawed, but it was an interesting challenge. I did 37 cards before giving up- I?ve been slacking off recently, but even when I wasn?t I doubt I could have done the whole deck.
The key when doing it is not to take any breaks and keep the intensity up.
What do you think of the workout, and can anyone do the whole deck? I?m sure there are a few people who can.
