When you start a workout routine, you may start to look at equipment options. These may change slightly depending on if you want to workout in a gym, outdoors, or in your home. One goal of your workout equipment options will likely be that the equipment either takes up very little space or is easy to take with you when traveling.If you travel a lot, resistance bands are a great option for you. They are lightweight and take up very little packing space.
One option available to you are cards. These cards are generally the size of a deck of playing cards and have an exercise on each card. These tell you the reps you need to do and will use your body weight or kettlebell in the workout. If you are new to workout cards, here are some ways to use them in your workout routine.
One of the largest benefits you can gain when you use workout cards for your workout is the personalization they can give you. Most of the workout decks out there are decks that consist of at least 50 plus cards. Sometimes the exercises focus on specific body areas while other times they may range over a full body workout with intensity levels. This means you can take a full deck and build a deck that works for you and is personalized to your goals and your skill level. You can also change this at any time which gives you even more personalization.
One of the reasons that people tend to turn down certain workout plans is due to the equipment that you need. The equipment may require anything from a spinning bike to a treadmill. If you are in a small space, then this can really limit your choices. With workout cards, you don’t need major equipment. In fact, most of the decks out there are based on body weight. They give you the full body workout without the full body equipment. This can be a huge benefit if you have a small space, small budget, or just don’t want to buy equipment that you may only use a few times.
Location and Time
Some of the issues you may have with workouts are the location of the workout and the time they take. One of the benefits of using workout cards is that you can set the workout to fit a time constraint that you have. Most of the cards have a time limit on them or number of reps, or both. You can also do most of the workouts in any location. This makes them ideal to do at home, outdoors, in a park, or wherever you find yourself with the time and space. This also opens you up to more workout options that you may not have expected.
Keep in mind there are several decks available that can help your workout. Some of them are complete beginner decks with body resistance workouts. Other decks use kettlebells, jump ropes, agility ladders, and other equipment. Try a few of them and use them in your routine to figure out which ones work best for you.
All the best,
