Cards of Death
My wife and I love working out, but she hates working out at home. Until we had our son a couple of years ago we were both regulars at Crossfit but the little guy has made it tough to fit in for both of us.
Although there are a number of online versions like this already, I wanted to tailor this for our home kit and space.
Cards of Death is a simple Crossfit workout and my wife's favourite.
The idea behind this is for you to pick a card from a deck and do the exercises and pick another. When you pick a joker, you either double or half your next card. A lot of fun if you are a sadist.
Firing up Codepen I was able to knock out the first version ready for our Sunday morning workout in about an hour.
What started as a solution to a couple problem turned into a fun project that could grow endlessly.
The UI needs some love and definitely a timer, currently we need to use a separate timer.
Overall I enjoyed the experience of building a tool quickly to satisfy a need I and it made a welcome change from creating standard websites.
