While trying to find other fun things to do for cardio I decided to start jump roping. How in the heck did we do it so much as kids and just for fun???
Believe me it is fun but holy crap I need to build up my stamina for it. Today was a day to just see how I would do. I only lasted about 15 minutes and had to take breaks but I got in 563 jumps. It really was fun and tiring, I was sweating my butt off!
Time to find some jump rope workouts and keep them in rotation for my cardio workouts. Go out and buy a jump rope and have some fun while burning those calories :)
I didn't get anything special, just a Champion jump rope from Target and downloaded the app Jump Rope Workout. I just put my phone in my armband and wore it on my forearm and started jumping away, it worked wonderfully.
Here's to jump roping and getting a LOT more jumps!
