Weight Loss Event: PowerHouse Hit The Deck Review and Giveaway


Wait until you hear about this "easy to fit in your schedule workout" called Hit The Deck! It is one of my new favorite workouts to do when I am in a hurry, don't have time to stick in a DVD, or go on my daily walk. It is also great for bringing on vacation! Read on to learn a little more about it!

Hit The Deck has three different intensity categories you can work from:

1.No Sweat

2.I’m Glistening

3.Sweating Buckets

Each category of 10 cards contains exercises that challenge all major muscle groups for a comprehensive total body strength-training and cardiovascular workout at the same time, using no equipment.

The length of your workout will be determined by how many cards you perform and the duration you set on the programmable interval timer. If you are short on time, keep it quick and only choose a few cards. If you’ve got more time, select more cards and even repeat the cycle over as many times as you can take it!

After setting the timer, you’ll perform the 5 Warm-up & Cool Down cards and then jump in to the heart of your workout. You’ll draw your first exercise card, do as many repetitions as you can during the interval, and when the timer beeps you’ll hit stop, draw your next card, hit start on the timer and get going on your next exercise. You’ll move from one card to the next as quickly as possible and continue on until you are out of cards or have repeated the cycle as many times as desired. Finish with the 5 Warm-up & Cool Down cards and you are done!

What can PowerHouse Hit the Deck do for you?

•Help you to lose weight, burn fat, and add muscle tone

•Provide you cardio AND weight training exercise at the same time

•Improve your overall levels of fitness and wellness

•Allow for flexibility - workouts can be any length desired

•Offer variety by providing a wide range of effective exercises

•Deliver an excellent workout with no fitness equipment

•Provide a great way to cross-train

•Expand your ability to handle and recover from stress

•Improve the quality of your sleep

You can:

•Get an efficient and effective exercise session when you travel

•Perform it any time, anywhere — you don’t have to belong to a gym

•Increase intensity by adding time

•Raise intensity by increasing the number of total exercises done

•Increase intensity by repeating the rotation of the selected exercises

•Do it with a workout partner or group

•Make it a family game!

My Opinion
PowerHouse Hit The Deck was a great addition to my workout routine! It really helped me add in something different and it is now my number one travel workout. It is so easy to carry with me when I am on vacation and it is easy to do there too! I don't need any extra dvds, videos, or equipment. I just simply pick a card and set the timer! It is so easy to start but so hard to finish :o)

I loved the different categories it gives you to do - depending on your mood and energy level. I also loved the varieties of workouts in each category. They were really challenging and they even give certain tips on how to make it even harder!

This was a great substitute for me when I couldn't get out for my walk when it was too hot or when I just needed a change from the treadmill. It really made me sweat...and made my son give me weird looks! :o)

I recommend Hit The Deck for all workout enthusiasts! There is a workout for beginner or expert, in shape or out of shape and you can customize it for however long you want!! I love the flexibility and the portability of it and so will you!

Thank you for the entry, I just can not bring myself to the P90X, I do not want to be confined to my couch for the rest of the day because I can not move a muscle. I need something more practical.

Stress stimulates the body’s fight or flight response, which releases the stress hormones adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol throughout the body, making energy available for fighting or fleeing. When we fight or flee, the body releases the “feel good” hormones endorphins, which flush out the stress hormones. What do fighting and fleeing have in common? Physical activity!
