Work out Cards
Well, I needed something to "refresh" my workouts at home... I thought about changing up my routine and came up with an idea... I try and do circuit training... using cardio/strength/resistance/abs...I don't have hours to workout so I try and get the ones that will give me the best workout in the least amount of time...
I decided to make cards with some of my favorite workouts on them... from warm up-cardio-abs-strength and cool down... I thought I could shuffle them like a deck of cards and that way I make sure to do each exercise and not get bored! ( I won't know which exercise is next...) I can "run" through them once and get a great calorie burn or go through them twice and double the calories... that will depend on time!
I color coded them, yellow- warm up/green- cardio/orange- abs/red- strength/blue- cool down
I used the Artiste cartridge for the card cut at 4" and then a 2nd card to layer cut at 3-1/4". Glued them together and then pre-typed the exercise on the PC. Cut them out and labeled the cards, and then cut out a water bottle at 2" from Sports Mania to add to the back. I then laminated them! YIKES!! They worked out, ( no pun intended) but with the cute water bottle on the back of the card, they created a slight seam in the back.
I guess that's OK, as I am going to be the only one "playing" with them... I will get a BIG binder ring and punch holes so I can keep them together. Great to put in my purse as well... Hey, you never know, I may just bust them out while waiting in the grocery store or Starbucks... got make good use of my time!! ( Hahahahaha... no worries, I wouldn't do that!)
Easy to make, but time consuming! I will add to these as I find new and exciting exercises to throw into the mix!! Who wants to workout with me??? :)
Thanks for looking...
