Target Area: Full Body
Equipment: Skipping Rope
- Jump off the floor, giving the rope just enough space to slip under your feet. Only the balls of your feet should touch the floor.
- Keep your elbows close to your sides as you turn the rope. The movement comes from the wrists and forearms, not the shoulders. Aim not to make big circles with your wrists, but rather small little movements.
- Perform for the prescribed time.
Increase the speed and amount of times the rope passes underneath your feet in between each jump
You can perform the exercise without the rope, jumping on the spot.
