A friend of mine came up with a great idea. Get a pack of cards and assign an exercise to each of the suits. For example: Spades=push ups, Hearts=clean and presses, Clubs=burpees, Diamonds=pullups. The card numbers are repetitions. All face cards=10 repetitions, Aces=11 repetitions. Shuffle the deck and take a card, then do the exercise and repetitions of the card. You will have gotten a full workout by the time you finish going through the deck! You can change the exercises to suit (pardon me) the routine you want to use. So you could have arm exercises alternating with legs, or abs with upper body, or make sure that each of the 4 suits target a different area of your body. This is also great fun to do with a friend!
