Is a 10 Minute Workout Possible?
Yes it is. And you’ve known how to do it for practically all your life!
Did you know that 10 minutes of jumping rope is the equivalent of jogging (not walking) for 30 minutes?
If that doesn’t convince you, here’s 6 more reasons to dust off your elementary jump roping skills.
Increased calorie burning: Research has shown that jumping rope can help you burn 🔥 over 1,000 calories per hour.
Improved cardio: jumping rope can raise your heart ❤️ rate two to three times faster than other exercises and offer the same aerobic building benefits as running with less impact on the joints.
Improved mental sharpness: jumping rope helps with the development of the left and right hemispheres of your brain 🧠 , which enhances spatial awareness, improves reading skills, increases memory and makes you more mentally alert.
It’s fun: jumping rope is a fun way to achieve your fitness goals. It’s fun to work on new skills, like double unders 😬 and criss crosses.
You can do it anywhere. It’s fun to be able to take it on the road and do your workouts anywhere. It’s fun to share with a partner. 👯♀️
It’s inexpensive: No expensive equipment or program to buy! In fact, jump ropes are also 20% off this month.
Trying to figure out what kind of jump rope is best for you? Let’s take a look at the different kinds of jump ropes:
Increase your speed or practice double unders with this rope, made of very thin wire is best. These are best used indoors (home or at the gym), to prevent damage to the thin rope over time.
A weighted rope can help improve coordination, agility, footwork, quickness and endurance. It’s main claim to fame is that it can also increase strength.
A workout rope like what you see on this site is good for indoor or outdoor jumping and in general offers the flexibility you might need to burn calories and increase heart rate.
A smart rope is going to be more expensive but right up the tech junkie’s alley! A smart rope connects to an app which tracks your workout stats, exercise progress and also lets you challenge others to jump rope competitions.
No matter which opens you choose, a jump rope is going to provide you a great cardio workout that is full of nostalgia. It will literally take your breath away 😂 but every day you will get better, faster, and more in shape!
I challenge you to spend 10 minutes a day for the next 21 days to jump rope. Track your strength, endurance, and weight loss!
