Hello hello Fit Girls! I thought it would be nice to share my jump rope workout for beginners! I don’t do this workout every day, I do it once or twice a week depending how much time I have. It exists of two blocks of different exercises and it takes about 7 minutes. It’s a great cardio workout that involves agility, strength, timing, speed and balance!

In my introduction article I explained that when you start exercising, it’s smart to stick to things your familiar with. I happen to be very familiar with jumping ropes haha! As a child I used to jump my little pink rope daily, sunshine or rain, you could always find me outdoors. Now that we’ve established why I enjoy doing this workout #youthsentimentforthewin, it’s time to discuss what you’ll need!

Safira Audrey 006You can basically do these jump rope exercises anywhere but if you want to do them indoors, make sure there is enough space. I really enjoy exercising outdoors though. To me there’s nothing better than working out while being surrounded by nature. It also gives me that little bit of extra motivation to keep going.

The rope I use is the NIKE SPEED ROPE 2.0. It’s made of nylon and I prefer this to cotton because it’s more durable and faster. If you just bought this rope it might be a bit twisted and tangled. To get the rope uncoiled, I boiled some water, then dropped the rope in it for 20/30 seconds while holding the handles. It was almost totally uncoiled. Then I dropped it in it again for another 10 seconds and it was perfect!

Make sure you’re wearing comfy shoes and don’t forget to stretch before you start with BLOCK ONE & TWO of this workout!
