Uno is one of my family's favorite games! It’s basic enough that even my 4 year old understands it, yet it is still fun for my older 2 children, 6 &10. In fact, my husband and I even have a great time playing it! That’s why this workout is so much fun!! This is a workout you can do with your whole family. So, take it out to the backyard and get moving!
To do this workout you will need a regular deck of Uno cards. For the most part, you will follow the directions of the game. Each player will receive 7 cards, take 1 card and place in the middle and then take all of the extra cards and place them at least 12 feet away, if you have a hill to put them on top of, even better!
You will then start the game just as the directions say, matching colors and numbers. The only difference is that each color on the card represents a different exercise. The number on the card represents reps. When someone lays a card, everyone one will preform the exercise together. If you do not have a match, or have to draw a card, everyone together will have to run to the card pile to draw the right amount or until someone finds a match. For example, if you need a 2 or a red and you draw a green 5, everyone together will run all the way back and then go back to the pile while that picker picks another card, this goes on until a red or a 2 are picked (or whatever the card you are looking for is) Reverses and Skips you will do just what you do during a normal game of UNO.
Here are some ideas to use for the cards:
Red: Push ups
Blue: Jump Squats
Green: Plank Walk ups
Yellow: Jumping Jacks
Wild: 10 burpees
You will continue to play, with everyone taking part in the exercises and running to draw cards until someone has no more cards left.
Have fun & don’t forget to say UNO!
