Looking to do an inexpensive, highly effective exercise? Try a jumping rope fitness workout. All you need is a pair of sport shoes, a little bit of space and a rope. Since this exercise is fun and easy, it is the ideal option for all categories of people.
Jumping rope will work every muscle in the body. In fact, it is not at all unusual to feel soreness in multiple areas of your body after your first jump rope workout. It’s an excellent way to especially work the core since you have to use your abdominals to stabilize your entire body to help you propel upwards as you jump.
Just like with all other types of cardio workouts, you will have to work your way into the jumping rope workout. Individuals who have been doing aerobic exercises on a regular basis, should be able to jump into this training more easily. If however you are resuming an exercise program after a long time of inactivity, it is recommended to take it slow and let your body adjust gradually. As you get more comfortable with the movement you can increase the speed and incorporate various jumps. Keep in mind that even if it is easy to do, rope jumping is a high impact exercise, so there is a high risk of injury. Even the most basic type of jumping requires good coordination and concentration. So you should increase the length and the speed of your workout only after you become accustomed to the motion.
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is a natural hormone that your body releases to burn body fat. You have probably seen many ads for pills that will help increase your natural levels of HGH. A high level of HGH in your body is the quickest route to burning body fat! Unfortunately, low intensity cardio won’t help your body release HGH. The best way to increase HGH is performing high intensity cardio for 30-60 seconds or so, followed by a minute or two of walking or low intensity cardio. This is called High Intensity Interval Training.
Last but not least, it is also important to vary your training speed as well. After less than a couple of weeks of starting your jumping rope cardio workout, you should see a significant improvement in your cardiovascular health, and you will also be able to jump rope faster and for a much longer period of time.
