60 Second Pickleball Lessons - Luck of the Draw

60 Second Pickleball Lessons - Luck of the Draw

Happy New Year and thanks for subscribing to 60 Second Lessons. If you're new here, you should know that this email will only take about a minute of your time and shares simple tips to keep you healthy and improve your pickleball game.

Today's 60 Second Lesson is by Daniel J Howard, Certified Instructor, Pickleball Pro and former Personal Trainer. He comes to us from Southern mid-Michigan. In Daniel's last video, he demonstrated a basic crunch for core strengthening and helping to alleviate lower back pain. He's back this week to help make these crunches (and push-ups) a bit more fun. All you need is a deck of cards! Strength may be the less glamourous side of pickleball, but increasing your strength improves your general fitness, which will help you to outplay your opponents or spend more time playing!

So deal your workout hand: Pick a card, and do that many reps - black cards are push-ups, red cards are crunches.

Key Takeaways:

  • Face cards are 10 reps, Aces are 11 reps

  • Black is push-ups, Red is crunches

  • Modify push-ups by starting from your knees or do shoulder touches instead

  • Modify crunches by doing leg lifts from your back
