Jump Rope Cardio Workout

Here's what you need to know for this week's jump rope workout.

Total time estimate to complete the workout: 20 minutes

Proper Warm-up

Before you start your workout, I recommend you go through a proper warm-up to which should consist of a few minutes of light aerobic activity, a series of corrective stretches (optional), and some mobility exercises.

For details on how to structure a good warm-up, see the Perfect Warm-up Series.

Workout Details

I won't lie - this workout will be a grueling one to get through. You will need to set your timer to ​interval mode:60 seconds high and 30 seconds low.

Your goal for this jump rope cardio workout is to complete the following sequence of jump rope and bodyweight exercises for completion:

  • 60 seconds basic jumps
  • 30 seconds mountain climbers
  • 60 seconds alternate foot jumps (or sprints)
  • 30 seconds mountain climbers
  • 60 seconds jump rope boxer step
  • 30 seconds mountain climbers
  • 60 seconds of jump rope jacks
  • 30 seconds mountain climbers

That's one round. Complete three (3) total rounds, resting 60 seconds between rounds.

If you need to take longer breaks between rounds, please do so. You can also control the intensity of this workout but increasing or decreasing the number of repetitions you get every work session.
