The BackBlast:

Heritage Harbor attracts some of the fittest and most athletic PAX in the Suncoast.

So they make excellent guinea pigs for new workout tortures.

Today we did “Build a Burpee”. With a pack of cards, the Ace-King-Queen-Jack-10-to-2 represented exercises on the ground and Hearts-Clubs-Diamonds-Spades represented exercises on your feet.

So “5 of Spades” might produce this:

  • 5 = LBCs
  • Spades = Side Straddle Hops

So you would do 1 LBC, then 1 Side Straddle Hop. Then you repeat that 10 times.

Or you might get a combination like this, repeated 10 times:

  • Queen = American Hammers
  • Hearts = Overhead claps

After 45 minutes, we had built dozens of fun and stimulating variations on the burpee.
