Tip #2

TRY SKIPPING ROPE!

Skipping is a great way to incorporate your cardio into your routine, especially in these winter months when it’s hard to get outside for a walk or run!

Why it’s effective:

  • Easy, inexpensive and fun!
  • Increases coordination
  • Excellent cardiovascular workout
  • Tones calves, thighs, butt, arms

Where to start?

  • I suggest to start with 5-20 min (depending on your level) and build up from there.
  • For variety, try doing different footwork: criss/cross, high knees, butt kicks, 1 leg, 2 legs together etc.
  • A great way to incorporate skipping into your circuit training routine:
    • For example, you can use this as an interval training workout: perform 2 exercises/2 min of skipping/2 exercises etc.
    • This way you will maximize your workout, burn more calories and get in your cardio and weight training.

ENJOY !
