Use your kids’ memory game and follow this idea to work your brain and body! Get your kids involved too…its a fun family activity for all.
Pick out 14 matches that you are going to play with and write them on a piece of paper with corresponding exercises. As you can see in the picture mine are vegetables and fruits 🙂
Example: Beet – 40 high knees; Cabbage – 20 skater hops
Here are the exercises I did.
- 20 tricep dips
- 40 high knees
- 20 jumping Jack
- 20 squats touch the ground
- 20 front push off into a reverse lunge (10/leg)
- 20 rows in plank position, alternating
- 10 squat thrust
- 20 lunge pulses
- 20 lunge jumps
- 2 laps on the stairs
- 20 push ups
- 40 bicycle crunch
- 20 skater hops
- 20 squat, curl, press with weights
You can modify the exercise to suit your needs. Once you have it all written out, you beginning your game. Turn over 2 cards. Perform each of those exercises and flip back. Flip two more. When you get a match, you only have to do the exercise one time. For example, once I found and turned over both pictures of the beet, I only had to do it one time (40 high knees).
This workout took about 40 minutes and I am sure for those of you with a really sharp memory, you can get it done in less time! Give it a try next time you are at home looking for a workout to do!
