Being in my 4th week of training and diet schedule I have started incorporating additional tools, exercises and variations to keep constantly my body challenged and pushing the limits. This week I started adding jumping rope to my exercises to get that heart ticking and that fat shredding.
As usually Saturdays I have cardio and when the weather allows I am having my Muay Thai lessons outside. And as with every fighting and combat/ cardio workouts is a perfect addition to add jumping rope to it, just like Rocky does.
So this is exactly what I do! I go Rocky! (not in his level yet, but working on it).
As gong for 10-20 minutes is quite difficult with a regular jumping, I am alternating the regular skipping with both legs to running or straight legs – just liek Rocky. (Ok, minus the double skipping part, as not there yet, but determined to try).
Jumping rope has loads of benefits and really great for weight loss, increasing stamina and strengthening your hear. Plus it burns 10 calories a minute!
And here is me in action – properly.
and here is the second version – running
and the last one – with a straight legs.
Let me just remind you that Jumping rope has loads of benefits and really great for weight loss, increasing stamina and strengthens your hear. Plus it burns 10 calories a minute!
