If you ever see me in the gym, 88.43% of the time I’ll have a jump rope close by.
Side note: yes, it’s a jump rope…not a skipping rope. For some reason, jump rope just sounds more bada$$ than skipping rope. Agree? OK, moving on.
So why do I always have a jump rope near by?
Because it’s one of the closest things to the “magic pill” you can get in the fitness industry.
Jump rope workouts help you lose weight, burn fat, and get shredded fast. In fact, in my opinion, jumping rope is the best form of “cardio” you can do. Not only does it burn more calories quicker than conventional cardio machines (also increasing the afterburn effect)…it also helps you get shredded legs.
I’ve always been a slow gainer when it comes to adding calf size. However, after incorporating more plyometrics and jump rope workouts into my programs…I’ve seen the best improvements in the shape of my calves ever. And I used to hit calves all the time with heavy calf raises, seated raises, etc.
Now…don’t get discouraged. If you haven’t jumped rope in a long time (or ever), this workout will be very tough. Jumping rope requires coordination. You need to get your mind and body in sync quick. I’m talking Justin Timberlake x JC Chasez quick (yep first time using a boyband reference on BradGouthroFitness.com).
But I promise…after a few attempts, you will get used to it. Promise me you won’t get frustrated and give up. Practise in this case does make perfect. Keep at it.
