5-Card Stud [easy, medium or hard]

This challenge is one week (seven days) long.  Starting whenever you want.  Example: if you start on a Monday then you finish on the following Sunday.  Remember to post everyday or as often as you can visit the site.

The only equipment required for this workout is a standard deck of playing cards. Before the workout, you deal yourself 5 cards (your hand), which will determine your workout for the day. You determine your workout as follows:

- Spades = sit-ups
- Diamonds = dips (chair dips)
- Clubs = push-ups
- Hearts = squats

Whatever number is on the card is the number of repetitions you will do of that exercise. Face cards (and aces) are special, with;

- Jacks = 20 reps
- Queens = 30 reps
- Kings = 40 reps
- Aces = 50 reps

Depending on your hand, you may have to do everything more than once, as follows;

- No pairs (just high card) = 1 round
- One pair = 2 rounds
- Two pair = 3 rounds
- Three of a kind = 4 rounds
- Straight = 5 rounds
- Flush = 6 rounds
- Full house = 7 rounds
- Four of a kind = 8 rounds
- Straight flush = 9 rounds

I don't suggest playing 5 card draw or 7-card stud with this workout! So for example, if I deal the following hand;

5 hearts
8 diamonds
8 spades
jack clubs
king spades

I will be doing;

5 squats
8 dips
8 sit-ups
20 push-ups
40 sit-ups

Because I got a pair (the pair of 8's), I will do that circuit twice in a row. Simple as that.

I hope somebody finds this useful. It was fun making it up.

This sounds like fun I am going to start it today. My cards are;

jack of hearts

4 of hearts

9 of spades

10 of hearts

ace of hearts 


So I guess that means

84 squats 

9 sit ups

That is right.  Make sure you do 24 squats then 9 sit up followed by 60 squats.  Good luck.  This challenge is one of my favorites because you never know what you are going to get.  Post when you finish and let us know how you did.

I did it and I actually like this challange. I also think that I might do another set tonight after dinner. Idk for sure yet. I know that I will be walking to take my dd to the park so that will be a workout in itself.
