A 10-Minute Jump Rope Workout for Beginners
By now, you’ve probably heard about the amazing benefits of jumping rope: improved endurance, coordination, fat loss, balance, conditioning … the list goes on.
And all of these benefits can be achieved in a shorter amount of time than most popular forms of cardio. Not too shabby!
But unless you’re a seasoned jumper, getting started can be a bit of an intimidating process (with lots of tripping along the way).
So where do you begin? How can you get the maximum benefit of jumping rope while avoiding the most common mistakes that make you want to stop before you even get started?
In the video below, I show you everything you need to know to jump rope with confidence — from how long your rope should be to how to size your rope to how to hold your handles. And I even threw in a challenging 10-minute workout so you can put your new skills to the test.
If you apply these tips and tricks, you’ll be well on your way to that toned, lean jump rope body in no time! Get the video here or below.
