This morning was definitely a “wear your layers” kind of morning!

After a quick warmup and lap we got started on the Thang ~

The morning we did a Deck of Death workout.  Each PAX pulls a card and the entire group does that rep or set count on the card. The exercise done is based on the suit.  We did 4 rounds.  2 rounds of arms, 2 rounds of abs/core.  We also ran a lap after each round. The added twist was a wild card was drawn before each round.  If a card was drawn that had the same number of the wild card, we did 3 burpees before you did the exercise for that card.  We managed to make it through the 3rd round with no burpees. Round 1 & 2….not so much.  Round 4 we only had to do the burpees once.

  1. Hearts – Merkins / Spades – Gun show / Diamonds – Upright rows / Clubs – Tricep kickbacks
  2. Hearts – BGSU / Spades – Penguins / Diamonds – Russian twists / Clubs – flutterkicks
  3. Hearts – Tricep ext / Spades – weighted scarecrows / Diamonds –  Bicep curls / Clubs – Pull up your pants
  4. Hearts – Plank reach taps / Spades – Hip dips / Diamonds – Lbc’s / Clubs – Bourbons

We finished up with just a few minutes left so I drew a card and we did Pax choice of an exercise. We did this 4 times before time was up.

Thanks for joining me this morning.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!
