A spell your name workout changes things up a bit and makes for a fun way to try something a little different.
Sometimes Monday’s come around I could just use another day or two off. If you follow me on Snapchat (@atouchofgrace2) you saw that we had a pipe burst in our master bathroom on Saturday so we basically spent the entire weekend dealing with plumbers, our insurance, and a clean up crew. Not how I’d expected it to go but we’re in the process of getting everything dried out and then we’ll be able to assess the damage and see what needs to be fixed and replaced.
Onto today’s post!
There’s something fun about finding new ways to incorporate fitness into your life. Even though I’m following the bikini body guide pretty religiously right now, there are days when I want to add a little something extra to my workout. Have you ever heard of the deck of cards workout? Basically, you assign each suit in the deck an exercise (hearts are burpees, spades are lunges, etc.) and do that move as you flip through the deck. If you draw a 5 of hearts you do 5 burpees. Aces are 1, Jacks, Queens and Kings are all 10 or 15. It’s so fun to do and an easy way to take your workout on the road.
The spell your name workout incorporates the same principals, just using your name.

These are all body-weight moves so you can do them anywhere. No equipment necessary! If you have a longer name like myself (Tiffany Breann Huebner) you can go through the workout two or three times (or more! It’s up to you.). But for those with a much shorter name (Betty Jo Grable for example) you should do it 3 or 4 times through. Rest for 60 seconds between circuits.

I also made it a printable so you can print and take this with you when you travel, or for easy access at home. You can download it HERE.
Have a great week!
alright… doing this tonight. Looks like I’m doing a lot of burpees! 😉
HAHA! Burpees build character I say. 🙂
This is the coolest thing ever!!!!!!!!!! Totally doing this everyday – how clever are you??
I love to change things up a bit and this is one of my favorite ways to do workouts on the road. Glad you like it Lindsay!
This is such a fun way to switch it up– I haven’t heard of the deck of cards one either, but that’s such a fun idea too!
I love the deck of cards one. If you pick hard exercises (like burpees) it makes for a really great workout!
What a fun and creative concept! I also love the deck of cards workout you described. Since I have a pretty short name, I’d def have to do first and last, haha!
I do my whole name and it makes for a good workout for sure!
Ah this is so fun! Going to try this out… but ergm did you purposefully make s-u-p-a-l the worst combination ever? haha
HAHA! Depending on your name the combo could be quite rough. I think Jaelan has it pretty bad with a lot of burpees, haha!
This is awesome – going to do my first and last name!!! xo, biana –BlovedBoston
Yes! It makes for a fun workout!
This is AWESOME. I think I’ll do it with the kids. They’ll have a lot of fun with it! I may have to Google some of them though :-p
Just text me and I’ll tell you how to do it. 🙂
