Fitness Day 17! ~ Let's pump it up!!!

Skipping!!

Are you ready to move your newly cleansed and healthy body? It is time to rev up your life, and pump your heart to increased health and vitality!
First you must invest in yourself - a good quality rope should cost you around $20, or borrow from your child, a friend or neighbour!

Seek, find and make friends with your new skipping rope!







Skipping is an excellent cardiovascular exercise which is far less hard on the muscles and bones than jogging. From an energy standpoint, jumping rope at about 130 revolutions per minute is similar to running at 6 miles per hour or cycling 12 miles per hour. Just 10 minutes of rope skipping is equivalent to a one-mile run!

A great benefit of a skipping rope workout is that it helps you improve your overall bodily coordination, forcing you to keep regular speed and proper form. It is also a great way to lose fat, as it encourages almost all of the muscles in your body to work out! Yeah!
Start your workout by skipping 2 minutes a day, for 5 days, then add on 1 minute each day for an additional 5 days - bringing you up to a daily 7 minute workout. Once this time frame is comfortable, add on 2 minutes each day, going up to a daily maximum of 15 minutes!
WOW! Imagine how incredible you will feel!
