Remember when you were a little kid and love you go jump rope with friends or even play double dutch. I bet now that you are older you don’t do it as much. What if I told you that jumping rope is a great way to get a total body workout.
Jumping rope not only works your calves, hamstrings, quadriceps and glutes, it also works your core muscles to give you those abs. Your upper body is also engaged, when you swing the rope around you are using muscles in both your shoulders and arms muscles. You are even using your hands and wrists muscles. You can also count you back muscles and chest muscles, this is especially true when you crossed the rope.
Jump rope Workout: 10-30 minutes
100 rope turns
10 walking lunges (each leg)
10 push ups
You can get creative with your workout by crossing the rope, swing the rope back a forth harder and harder. You can also swing the rope back and forth hopping on one leg.
Enjoy your workout!!
