pageimages_howtouseEvery winter I tell myself I’m gonna get in shape for the summer so I can strut around in my boardshorts and tank top and get an awesome tan. And every winter it just seems like way too much effort. Well, these cards almost have me convinced to get off my ass and exercise. And that’s saying something. Basically, there are a bunch of different decks (bodyweight, yoga, junior, etc) that show you various isometric stretches and exercises that you can vary your workout with. The only thing I would not recommend trying is playing drinking games with these.
