Hi,
Anyone heard about this FitDeck (www.fitdeck.com)? Could be fun to pull a card each hour during work to break up the day. Wanted to see what others think before buying it.

I haven't used this particular deck but I know some folks simply take a regular deck of cards and assign exercises to the numbers and suits and then pull cards and do the same thing. Probably cheaper plus you can choose your own exercises. For example, I bet fitdeck doesn't have most of the gymnastics moves nor the olympic lifts and so on.

Sabine,

You could use a normal deck of cards to do the same thing - the usual method is to assign an exercise to each suit (eg hearts = push-ups, spades = sit-ups etc) and then do reps based on the number of the card you pull (so 10 of hearts = 10 push-ups, ace of spades = 14 situps and so forth....)

Sabine,
We use a regular deck of cards. It's been a staple of our Krav Maga warm up for about five years. If we working kicks squats, jumping squats, and lunges are assigned. Legs are nice and rubbery when the kicking starts, just like being in the middle of a long fight.

Thats a great idea. I like using the number of the cards as the reps. Haven't thought of that. I guess you could double or tripple the reps to make it harder (or x5 for the next card if you pulled a joker).
Thanks for the tips!

Make your own with index cards. Cheaper.

For even more fun, you can turn over a card and call it the multiplier. Every card you pull after that is multiplied by the multiplier then you do that number of reps. You can also use dice as a multiplier.

Frank-

How much does a deck of cards cost in your neck of the woods?
