Do you also make a new year’s resolution of going to the gym every day, getting that perfect body that you have always dreamed of but got too lazy or that determination didn’t work out?
Do you have friends who push you to workout, even join you in taking that promise and give up midway or even before you? There you lose your motivation (thankfully you don’t lose your friend) and might even have an argument with your friends on who is lousier.
Well, you are no exception, and this happens with the majority of us. Workout routines can become monotonous, and you lose interest after a few weeks. What if there was a way, where you do a complete new set everyday while challenging your friend? We guarantee you a new set of routines every day, a different one for your friend. All you need is some willpower, a friend, and a coin.
Yes! You read that right. A coin flip is going to decide what you are going to do in the next workout session. You can challenge your friend and the workout that you end up doing solely depends on luck. So, you don’t have anyone to blame.
Before getting into the how, let’s have a look at the why.
1. Exercising boosts your brainpower.
2. It pumps up your heart and body.
3. It increases appetite and makes you want to eat healthy
4. It boosts your performance
5. It improves the immunity of your body
6. It does not take a lot of time
7. Body movement helps take mental strain away
8. It also helps in building relationships
Given the innumerable benefits of workout, and now that we have reminded you some, you can start working out right away.
We will tell you about a super simple way by which the workouts won’t get monotonous and you will have something new every day.
Step 1: List down a set of workouts.
You need to list down some workouts (in sets) , let’s say 20. This can include 15 push ups, 50 jumping jacks, 45 wall sits and every other kind of workout.
The benefit here is you can customise this list depending on your ability and the equipment at hand. For example, if you are someone who works out with equipment like a dumbbell, or a treadmill, you can add those in your list.
If you are a no-equipment workout person and focus on cardio, then you can customise the list according to that.
Step 2: Flip a coin
Now that you have your workouts listed, all you need to do is flip a coin. You can flip a coin 5, 10, 15, or 20 times, depending on the number of sets that you want to do. For example, if you want to do 10 different exercises or ten different sets of exercises you need to flip your coin 10 times.
Step 3: Note It Down
While flipping the coin make sure that you note down every flip result that you get. So, for example if your first flip comes as a head you note it down and if and then your friend gets to flip the coin if he gets a tail then he notes it down separately. Keep on repeating this process until you have flipped the coin as desired, and you have all the results noted down.
Step 4: Have Fun!
Now all you have to do is match the result of the flipped coin with the noted down workouts. This will help you decide the workout that you are going for.
If you look at the sheet below you will understand what we are saying here.
You have to create a similar sheet with two columns of heads and tails where you will have 5 workouts on each section. Suppose you do a flip, and you get a head on a first flip then you do the workout that is mentioned in the first row under the head’s column, i.e., 50 jumping jacks. Similarly, the second flip will decide the workout which you and your friend will be doing.
Things to keep in mind
Make sure to do a thorough research of the workouts that you include in your list. A perfect work out session contains cardio, legs, arms, chest, and the whole-body workout. You can divide it depending on your own goals and what you want from the workout.
Make sure to include warmups before the workout session and take breaks in between the reps. You also should be hydrated enough and follow the basic workout norms so that you don’t overwork yourself.
Now don’t freak out if you want to work out and suddenly you can’t find a coin. Just come to our website and flip a coin. There you can do as many free flips of coins as possible. This will help you decide the workout you are doing without having to go and take out an actual coin.
Using the website is simpler than having to actually flip a coin. Just go to flip a coin(https://numbermagics.com/flip-a-coin) and you will see the screen like this.
Just click on the flip a coin and you will get a head or a tail as there is desired result, note it down and start working out.
The best part of this workout challenge is that you will be able to continue it for a longer time since it comes with no guarantee of which workout you will land on. Secondly, you will have a friend with whom you can have fun while getting your body in shape. Now go grab that friend and get started today!
