Jamie Eason – Plyometric Routine with Playing Cards

In a Bodybuilding.com interview, Jamie Eason tells you how to get a great workout even on those days you can’t get out to the gym. All you need is a deck of cards!

How It Works:

Joker = 1 rep or 11 reps depending on your ambition level

  1. Flip over 3 cards. The sum of the cards = the number of reps you will do of the 1st exercise.
  2. Flip over 3 more cards.  Sum = the number of reps of 2nd exercise.
  3. Continue till you complete all the exercises, then start over until you finish the deck of cards
  4. Once you finish the deck of cards, you can go again.  Jamie said she will do this a few times a day OR do 3 decks in a row.
