Have you picked up a jump rope lately? By lately, I don't mean back in the 6th grade :)
Jumping rope is an AWESOME and totally underrated way of working out.
For reals. Ever tried doing 30 minutes of continuous jump rope? It's a serious feat.
Back around Thanksgiving I did a 1,000 Challenge (you can find the post HERE).
I figured it was about time to bring this bad boy back to the blog! I'm a big fan of adding jump ropes to the end of most of my workouts (usually I will just jump rope for a song on my phone and then be done). It's a burst of high energy that burns a few extra calories.
And also... this is like the cheapest exercise equipment that you'll ever find. I think I got mine at Walmart for less than $5.
I found the workout inspo from pinterest (holla!) And I am really happy that I did.
It's super simple and easy to follow. What more could you ask for?
You could make this workout as long or as short as you want. Do as many sets as you feel comfortable with!
I am always surprised at how difficult jumping rope is when I pick it up after a while. I love the two minute rest time between each set!
Don't be afraid to make this workout your own... want to add in a unique jump that you love? Do it. Love the high jumps? Add in 20 instead of just 10. If you can only do have of the jumps, that is just fine. Its OK to work your way up. Sometimes when I see things on pinterest or on a blog, I don't even bother trying because it looks too hard... or too easy. I'm trying to learn to step outside my comfort zone and just try it out. What can it hurt? If you hate it, then maybe you lost 10 minutes and no harm done. Do me a favor and try something new today!
I'm a college-grad, certified group fitness instructor and certified personal trainer looking to get my healthy to the next level. I hope you can find a little something here that will help you on your journey too.
