Skipping Rope

Rope skipping…engages legs, calves, hamstrings, glutes, core, back, chest, shoulders, arms…total body.

If you cannot do 30 straight minutes of skipping then do intervals. Intervals are better then steady pace cardio because your heart rate goes up and down and you can give yourself a short break to recover.

Here’s some variations of interval skipping

Longer Cardio:

60:30 for 30 min

90:30 for 30 min

2 min:30 sec for 30 min

Sprint Cardio

30:10 x8 (around 5 min)

20:10 x8 for tabata style

Here’s a video on different variations:
