Lately I’ve been doing a lot of skipping.
Just can’t help it.
Simple and addicting. You can’t go wrong with that combination.
The beautiful thing about skipping is that you’re only limited by your imagination. By your creativity.
Once you master the most basic fundamentals and get your timing down, the doors open up. There’s so much room to play around and experiment. To test. To explore!
I just wanted to show you two simple little skipping workouts I’ve come up with (on the fly). It might give you some ideas you can use to create your own little workouts.
Here they are…
Simple Skipping Workout 1
I came up with this one a while back (you may have seen it in my Jump Rope Manifesto). It’s a little bit more advanced since it incorporates double-unders, but it’s extremely effective. Check out the stats at the end of the video. [Note: if the video isn’t showing, simply refresh the page and it should come up.]
Simple Skipping Workout 2
This skipping workout is a little simpler. Nothing complicate. However, you’ll find that your calves will be on fire. So if you choose to try this one, it might be a good idea to do fewer sets and possibly shorter durations. Then progress. You’ll have to judge for yourself!
So that’s it.
You can see how simple it is to put together some of these workouts. All you need is a rope, a little bit of space, and your imagination.
NOTE: I’ve been working hard lately on a new Jump Rope Training Guide. It’s going to be jam-packed with valuable information, including an entire set of unique workouts like the ones above (a little more thought out though).
If there’s anything in particular you’d like me to add to the guide, feel free to contact me or just leave a comment below. I want this to be the best jump rope training guide on the planet!
Let me know what you think in the comments below! If you have any of your own workouts, please share!
