Think you have the luck of the Irish?
Grab a deck of cards and a timer, and try out this tabata-style card game!
In case you missed our last tabata-style workout, tabata indicates that you will be doing an exercise as hard as you can for 20sec, then rest for 10sec. With this training protocol, you can get a great workout in as little as 4minutes. BUT, since we know our TriForcers are always game for some more intensity, we’ll be doing 4 rounds of 4-minute tabatas, switching between conditioning and strength options.
Here’s the game:
Grab 8 cards from a mixed deck--- DON’T PEEK.
Turn over the first card and check out which exercise you’ll be doing first (see below, for the first round we’ll be looking at Group A)
Start the timer, and get after it! Do the corresponding exercise for 20sec.
During your 10sec break, turn over the second card-- this is your next exercise.
Keep repeating until you are done all 8 cards (4 minutes).
Take a 60 sec break and then pick 8 more cards, this time we will be the corresponding exercises in Group B below.
Once your done your 8 cards, take a 60 sec break.
If you’re feeling up for it, try doing each group one more time, for a total of 4 rounds (only 19 minutes with breaks in between rounds!)
We hope you’re luckier than us--- we had 4 consecutive hearts in the first round, which means we had to do burpees 4 times in a row!
May the TriForce be with you ;)
