Deck Workout

I wish I had some pictures but, I had a blast doing the “Hit the Deck” workout I saw on A Two Storey Home.  As Catherine described, it was a workout from Bob  Harper on the Biggest Loser.  So, I asked my oldest boy to try it with me.  We decided diamonds would be jumping jacks, hearts would be push-ups, spades would be squats, and clubs would be crunches.  We made it through the deck in about 30 minutes.  My other two kids were upset they didn’t start with us.  So, I got to do it again.  Thanks to Catherine I was able to bond with my kids and I had fun.

    I just read another blog where someone posted about the cards…sounds like a fun way to get in some calisthenics!

    We did that in Boot Camp this past summer. Personally I hated it — trainer made me get to the floor for pushups, stand up, jumping jacks, back down to the floor for something else and so on. I do my exercises standing up; thank you very much! But I think this was a nice thing for you and your son did this together!
