Playing cards=poker night, amirite? Not so fast. The same suits that boost your bragging rights can boost your fitness, too. Enter the Deck-of-Cards workout—a customizable game to get you moving. You’ll need a deck of cards, a timer, and a mat. Assign a different exercise to each suit, shuffle, and let the face value dictate your rep count. See how many cards you can get through in 30 minutes, or try the ultimate challenge of completing the deck.
