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:
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!

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!
