Fitness: 10 Minute at Home Workout / I Heart Fitness


Hey Guys,

I was asked by the lovely people at My Voucher Codes if I wanted to get involved in a campaign I Heart Fitness that they are doing along with The British Heart Foundation that is aiming to keep your heart healthy. 

The challenge they set was to create a 10 Minute using things that you can find around home. I decided that my workout would be a full body work with small bursts of cardio in as well

For this workout you will need a pack of cards, stop watch (can use your phone) and skipping ropes. You can use a yoga mat if you want but its not a necessity. 




The first thing you need to do is make sure your in a room that you can skip in and do a short sprint in. When your ready to start you need to place the pack of card at the other end of the room in two piles.  

The workout is going to be simple but I'm going to quickly explain what you have to do after you have finished your cardio sections. After you have done your cardio part of the workout you will run across the room and pick up a card from each pile. You will add  them two numbers together and than multiply by 2. For example if you had a 5 and a 6 you would get 22. If you pick up a King, Queen, Jack or Ace you would count them as 11. Once you have added the numbers together and multiplied the 2 together you will do that amount of the exercise. 


The workout

1 minute cardio (Skipping or if you don't have a skipping rope you can do star jumps or run on the spot)

Run across room, collect cards add together and multiply them by 2 and do exercise below:
