Deck of Cards Workout Description
This deck of cards workout routine uses sets of 2 whole body exercises on subsequent months. Each month you will switch up your exercises but follow the same patter with the deck of cards. The first month you will use the core two: Hindu Pushup and Hindu Squat. Make sure the deck is fully shuffled. Draw one card and place it on the ground. If the color is red you will do a Hindu Pushup. Do as many reps as is on the card. For example, say you drew a seven of diamonds. You would then do 7 reps of the Hindu Pushup.
If you draw a black card, do a Hindu Squat and do as many reps is as on the card. You continue in the way until the entire deck is used up. For face cards like the Queen of Clubs, for example, these count as 10 reps.

For each of the 3 months you will do the routine 3 X per week: Mon/Wed/Fri or Tues/Thurs/Sat. Make sure you have a day of rest between each session. This first month you will be using the Hindu Pushup and Hindu Squat. Once you reach the second month, you will change up, and for ever red card you draw you will do Spider Pushup reps and for every black card you draw you do reps of Crazy Lunge.

Playing Card Workout Tips
1. Make sure you do not stop at all throughout the routine. The cards and the reps should be flowing. Even if you get several of one color in a row keep pushing through it. It should take about 20 minutes or so to get through the entire deck which is a perfect timeframe to give you an extreme workout.
