Deck of Cards

Warm Up Monday

Format: Individual activity

Materials: White board to write down suits, deck of cards (face cards removed)

  1. Each suit is an exercise, for example, hearts are jumping jacks, diamonds are burpees, spades are push-ups and clubs are air squats
  2. Lead Trainer flips a card and kids need to do the number of repetitions shown on the card of the designated exercise (i.e. 2 of diamonds = 2 burpees)
  3. Keep flipping cards for the allotted period of time
  4. This can be used at the end of the session as a skill review too by changing the movements that match the suits partially through the game
