Jump Rope Workouts

Looking for a great cardio workout that can be done anywhere?

Don’t forget about your good ol’ fashioned jump rope!

Jumping rope is a full body workout involving your legs, core, and arms. A jump rope can easily be packed into a bag when traveling and can be done indoors or outdoors. If it’s raining do it in your garage or in your hotel room. If it’s nice outside, enjoy the weather by going to the beach/park with a nice view or just do it in your driveway. Working in jumping rope instead of running can also prevent overuse injuries.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is far more beneficial for you than steady state cardio. It burns more fat, promotes muscle gain, gives your metabolism a boost, and enables you to burn more calories at rest.

If you combine jumping rope with some high intesnity intervals you get a huge bang for your effort!

TIPS:

  • Download a timer app like “Seconds” on your phone. You can set intervals so you do not have to watch a clock or stopwatch.

  • I have provided workouts for every level, please note the modifications
