There was a guy training today at my gym with a deck of cards. At the start of each set, he'd flip a card, and do that many reps. I think face cards were worth 10 reps.

I remember in high school hearing of wrestlers going through a deck, and black cards were push-ups and red cards were sit-ups. Jacks were 11, queens 12, kings 13 and aces 14, all the rest were face value. This sounds ok just to help stay in shape, but seems very stupid for bodybuilding.

Wait, I've got one more.....

Hey 240, cards determining your rep scheme.................. ....... more like Arby's!

Please explain this joke.  I am trying but it's not becoming clear what you mean.

I've heard of this in prison stories, never in normal gym environment though.  I dont think it sounds like solid training methods though, IMO.

yeah, the old push-up game........a great challenge between friends, but i for all the lifting i did in high school, all i saw from it was strenghth, not much mass.

kind of a random approach to instinctive style training and i really dont see the benefit of the low rep range for mass, especially if you're alternating sets of 2 with sets of 10 but then if its working for him, then who are we to say

but i think he got the deck of cards bodybuilding system on ebay for 9.95 and no shipping charge  Grin
