Have you ever heard of RipDeck?!
Well basically it is a MUCH less messy of the playing card workout that I’ve done before. And I love it!
In the playing card workout, I take a deck of cards and assign an exercise to each suit. For example, hearts are lunges, diamonds are situps, and so on. Then after shuffling the cards I put them in a stack and start drawing them one at a time. The suit determines the move and the number on the card determines the number of times I perform the move. It’s pretty cool, and just an easy way to get an at-home workout and a GREAT way to change up your routine. Although I haven’t done it in awhile, I really like it!
Last night I was reading Caitlin’s post on “Best Fitness Apps.” Along with her mentioning MY SUGGESTION of the GymBoss app (cool!), her suggestion of the RipDeck app immediately caught my eye. I downloaded the app and tried it this morning after my 4.15 mi. walk/run.
And the verdict….PERFECT!!! It is essentially my playing card workout with no cards to shuffle or having to write down what suit is what (because I always forgot). Plus any workout that is new every time and incorporates technology is a win in my book! Score!
You can set it at different fitness levels that determines what moves you will do, and at the end it shows you a summary screen that tells your total time plus breaks down how long it took to do each individual exercise. I think it’s very cool.
So I know I already posted earlier this morning, but I wanted to share this with you before I forgot and also before the holiday weekend festivities began! Whatever you’re doing this weekend, remember to be safe and remember WHY we have the freedoms to celebrate.
