Workout of the Week #2

Since I’ve been in my 20’s I’ve been too scared to use a jump rope as I felt heavy and unable to jump, but a few years ago I saw this lovely little exercise routine and decided to give it a try. It was much easier than I expected even though I hit myself with the rope more than once or twice.

This is one of my favourite exercises of all time. I do it whenever I have some extra time after gym or if I feel I haven’t trained hard enough. I also like doing it as a pre-workout warm up. Its also easy enough to do as a workout on its own while on holiday. All you need is a jump rope.

This exercise is divided into two parts that should be done consecutively.

Part 1

Jump rope Superset (repeat 5 times to perform 100 jumps before doing the squats)

  • 10 basic bounce
  • 10 high knees

30 free hand squats

Part2

Jump rope Superset (repeat 5 times to perform 100 jumps before doing the lunges)

  • 10 basic bounce
  • 10 high knees

20 jump lunges

What is your favourite jump-rope routine?
