For today’s great work out, I’m going to share the jump rope workout that we did for our dryland routine on my swim team. This workout is enjoyable because it’s not that difficult, requires only a jump, and it gets you sweating and your heart rate up more easily. Jump rope is a great workout that you can do pretty much anywhere (so long as you can swing the rope without hitting anything). If you do it properly, you’ll feel the burn in your thighs, calves, and shoulders.
As with the other workouts I shared with you, it’s important to warm up your body first before performing this routine. Try doing about 50 jumping jacks first, and then some stretching. Also, start with 30 seconds on and 30 seconds rest before increasing the on interval. The on interval should not exceed more than a minute.

Once you are done with this, don’t forget to stretch out and enjoy your glass of chocolate milk!
Until next week, my friends, stay fit!
