If you saw the “Biggest Loser” last night you might have seen the “trainer tip” explained by Jillian. In that very short clip; she describes how to use a deck of cards to give yourself a difficult workout in a short amount of time. Here are the guidelines to use jacks, kings and queens to get lean.
Take a deck of cards and do the number of repetitions that appear on that card:
- 2 through 10 – Do that many repetitions
- Face cards – Do 10 repetitions
- Ace – One minute break
With each card you’ll also alternate your movements:
Don’t stop until you’ve finished all 52 cards!
If this doesn’t seems to motivate you enough then try these fitness cards released by Jillian Michaels. Each card has a different exercise. It comes in a convenient deck so you can take them to the gym.
Hot Bod in a Box packages Jillian’s tough and energetic approach to fitness in a deck filled with portable exercise cards that you can mix and match for a customized workout. These go-anywhere cards are perfect for throwing in your gym bag, car, or purse. The cards feature full-color photographs of Jillian demonstrating each exercise.
Whether you chose Jillian’s version or the standard deck of cards; picking new ways to motivate yourself will keep you on the track to a healthy life style. Workouts should never be boring. Always seek out new ways to challenge yourself and keep the interest alive in your routines.
