Jump Rope

Jump Rope

Kids’ toys might be the best kept secret to your dream body! Grab a rope and start slow, because if you haven’t jumped since playground days, it will take some getting used to. Begin with regular, double-leg jumps, bouncing low on your toes and keeping your elbows tight to your sides. Add some intensity by switching to one foot jumps, keeping the other leg held up in front of you. The effort to balance will hit your core and thighs. Then try alternating feet between each jump, kicking them out in front of you. Finish up with a one minute plank to bring it down.
