If you’re anything like me, you’re probably getting a little bored of your normal at-home workouts! With so much time spent at home lately, I’ve really had to think out of the box for different ways to move so I don’t get lazy. Cardio really isn’t my favorite thing but recently decided to try out jump roping! Turns out, this is an AMAZING way to fit in some cardio but also get a full body workout in. Jump roping may look like it’s all in the arms (it kind of is) but it can really take some practice to nail down the right form!
To inspire all of you to jump along with me, I’m sharing a really simple jump rope workout for you all to try for yourselves! This workout can be modified depending on what jump ropes you have access to. I usually like to take it to the next level with a weighted rope! Happy jumping ❤️
I recommend always starting with a 2 minute warmup jump! Get your blood flowing and heart rate up a bit to get you nice and loose for jumping. Turn up your favorite playlist and just let go and focus on the rhythm of the rope hitting the ground!
This workout will get more intense as you go, especially if you’re choosing to level up with a weighted rope! Basically the idea is 30 seconds on 30 seconds off for 10 minutes, keep scrolling to get started!
#1 Easy pace with ¼ lb rope, 30 seconds on 30 seconds rest for 3 minutes total
#2 Medium pace with ½ lb rope, 30 seconds on 30 seconds rest for 4 minutes total
#3 Fast pace with 1lb rope, 30 seconds on 30 seconds rest for 3 minutes total
My favorite weighted rope right now is Crossrope. I love it because of how customizable it is! Every part of the rope (handles and rope itself) is weighted and can be swapped out for lighter or heavier weights. There are definitely other weighted options out there on Amazon that you can also try! This workout might sound easy but I promise you’ll feel it the next day 😉
