Jumping Rope - For Athletes and Non-Athletes Alike

Jumping rope is not just for children and boxers.   Jumping rope not only is great cardio (really gets the heart pumping) but it also enhances coordination, quickness, and endurance.   It is challenging and will take time and practice.   I recently jumped rope at a cross fit gym.  It had been many, many years since I jumped rope.   It is true --- what an incredible intense cardio session (also works those leg muscles).      

Try timed session rounds.  If you are just starting, try 20-second rounds.   Rest in between and do 6 rounds.  As you progress, increase the time.  Before you know it, your rounds will be minutes instead of seconds.  

Jumping rope is an inexpensive, portable and highly effective way to get in a good workout.    Give it a try !

Stay tuned………..
