Hey there! So I don’t know about you but it can often feel like I never have enough time in the day to exercise. And truth be told I often use that as my excuse but I can longer do that. So I’ve realized I need an exercise that can be high intensity but it needs to be something I can control the pace. The answer: Jump Rope. Yup. That’s right, jump roping, just like your childhood days where you’d play outside until the streetlights came on.
Well the good thing about jump roping is that you can decide what kind of exercise you’d like.
Exercise one can be jumping roping how you normally jump rope for x amount of minutes, say 10 minutes, and tadaa you’re done with your workout.
Another kind of exercise could be incorporating different kind of moves in 8 to 10 minutes. (Jump Rope exercises don’t have to be too long).
So I’ll be making a list of exercising that you can choose from:
1: Infinity Symbol
So you’re standing tall, feet shoulder width apart and you making the infinity symbol in front of you with the rope for about a minute.
2: Single Foot Jump
You’re in the ready to jump mode with your feet together and you jump over the rope every time the rope comes around in front of you. (You’ll do this for about a minute)
3: Double Foot Jump
Once again you’re in the ready to jump mode, but this time you’ll hop twice for every time the rope comes in front of you. (You’ll do this for about a minute)
So you’re in the ready to jump mode, but this time you’ll hop once every time the jump rope comes around in front of you but to the side. (You’ll do this for about two minutes)
5: High Knees
Just like the single foot jump, you’ll jump once over the rope but you’ll be bring your knees up high.
And that’s pretty much it, I put a time for each exercise but you don’t need to follow it. You just need to try it out, trust me if you were a great jump roper back when you were a child you might not be so athletic anymore. (OR AT LEAST IN MY CASE). I tried it and I was so tired beyond belief but go ahead and prove me wrong!
