The Pax circled up with their weights in hand.  A deck of cards was produced.  Some classic rock was fired up – to set the mood. We decided to play a little card game.

Each person pulls a card from a well-shuffled[1], face down pile of cards.  The Pax perform that exercise as a group.  The card puller counts the reps.  The next person in the circle pulls a card.  Perform that exercise.  And so on.

Reps were determined as follows:

Numbered cards = face value + 10

Aces = 1 + 10 = 11

Jacks = 11, Queen = 12, King = 13

The suits each represented one of two exercises, one each for odd and even numbers.  Except for hearts.

Hearts (Cardio)

Run around cones placed at the end of the parking deck

Odd Curls
