Let’s jump rope

Let’s jump rope

Did you know jump rope (or skipping rope) was a very good form of cardio? I was looking for something to revive my morning work out routine and recalled I had a jump rope. A google search for “jump rope exercise routine” brought up several results.

I followed one that I found on the Fitness Black Book website. The 15 minute workout on the site is;

  • Stand in front of a clock or timer of some sort
  • Jump Rope for 3 minutes to warm up
  • Rest for 30 seconds
  • Jump rope as quickly as possible for 60 seconds
  • Rest for 30 seconds
  • Jump Rope as quickly as possible for 60 seconds
  • Rest for 30 seconds
  • Repeat this alternating pattern for 15-20 minutes

As it says on the site, jumping rope exercises just about every muscle in the body. I’m definitely doing this regularly.

I also found this video on Youtube;

Have a great weekend!
