This skipping workout is definitely one of my favourites, what i like most about it is its simplicity. With a skipping workout like this you get out what you put in. Maximise your effort while doing skipping workout and use your 30 second break to recover before starting again. [tabgroup][tab title=”Tecnique”]Your arms should barely move when you jump rope. The rotation of the rope should come from wrist movement. If you want to increase the speed of the rotations, simply increase the tightness of the circles that your wrist is making (this will make more sense when you start jumping rope). The goal of your first two weeks of jumping rope is to eventually work up to a point where you can jump rope for 5 minutes solid without having to stop and start again. This means that if you have to stop because the rope hits your feet, you have to start again from zero. You also want to be able to jump rope alternating feet, so it looks like you are running while jumping rope.[/tab][tab title=”Note”]There are a bunch of things you can do to customize this…you can do the whole workout using the “running in place” method of jumping, you can learn how to spin the rope twice for every one jump, etc…as you get really advanced you will find that you will be able to spin that rope at blazing speed and that 60 minute sprint will be extremely intense. Also, if you want to take advantage of the fast heart rate and burn even more body fat, hit a treadmill or exercise bike for 20-30 minutes after your jump rope workout.[/tab][/tabgroup] [loop category=skipping workouts module=gallery ]
