Jump Jump Jump AROUND !

Sometimes hitting the gym is not an option OR you are busy traveling around and don't have the access to a gym nearby. I have the perfect solution to that problem !!


A JUMP ROPE !
Yes the jump rope although seems small can have MAJOR effects on your cardiovascular health.Jumping rope has major benefits on helping you to lose weight if you intend to do it through exercise and healthy eating. Jumping rope for 30 minutes will produce a caloric burn of approximately 300 calories. So in order to lose one pound per week, you must jump rope for thirty minutes every day and cut out 400 calories from your diet. While this may seem intimidating, it will promote the greatest amount of weight loss in the healthiest manner possible.
Another great benefit of using a jump rope during exercise is increased cardiovascular fitness. Your cardiovascular system involves your heart and the arteries and veins that bring blood and oxygen to and from the heart and the rest of the body. This improves the ability of your body systems to work more efficiently. You will not only have a greater ability to perform your daily tasks, but you will become less breathless during exercise as well.
Exercising with a jump rope is a great way to improve the muscle tone in your legs and lower body. After the first day of jumping rope, you may experience some soreness in your legs especially in your calves. This is because the muscles have been working hard enough to cause microtears. These microtears will eventually heal themselves in a few days and because of this damage and repair, your muscles will be stronger, larger, and more toned than when you started the exercise.
Today I CHALLENGE you to break out of that fitness rut and try this workout !
