Jump Rope is one of my favorite cardio style exercises.
Watch the Speed Jump Rope: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform Speed Jump Rope:
1. Hold the ends of the jump rope in each hand.
2. With your feet hip-width apart, slightly bend your knees, and push the balls of your feet through the ground to jump up, point your toes to the ground, and with your hands by your waist, quickly rotate your wrists to make small circles to revolve the rope around your body.
3. Land softly on your toes, and quickly push off again from the balls of your feet. The idea is to jump over the rope as quickly as possible with a slight hop. Don’t think of jumping as high as you can, think about bouncing on the balls of your feet.
4. To make it harder, do double unders. This is when the rope revolves under your feet twice within one jump. Once again, the idea is not to just jump higher, the speed comes from the quick rotation of your wrists.
