Bodyweight Exercise Series: Jump Rope Now!

Posted Jan 06 2010 12:30pm
Jump rope now with your bodyweight to burn more fat, improve your heart health and better lean and tone your body!

Jumping rope will also help improve your balance, coordination and overall core strength.

I was talking to a friend the other day about jumping rope to burn fat. She said, "I can't jump rope, I'm too uncoordinated!" What? Who didn't jump rope as a kid for fun and games? Everybody can jump rope!

Buy a jump rope and practice for 5-10 minutes every day and soon you'll be jumping for 20-30 minutes. I can make you a promise if you will jump rope for about 20 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week: your body will burn fat and get leaner like never before!

Just do intervals for 20 minutes when you jump rope such as jumping for 1 minute and walking for 1 minute. As you improve, you can begin to jump faster and faster and burn more and more fat!

Just be sure to look straight ahead, keep your body erect, your core braced (as if taking a punch to your gut) and use your hands/wrists to propel the rope. Keep your arms and body as still as possible as you jump. Land on the balls of your feet and not your toes.

Oh yeah, have fun jumping rope!
