Slowly the fitness expert has been increasing how long all of us jump rope.
The last time I jumped rope I was in my early teens and in school. The gym teacher had tons of red and green beaded jump ropes around the gym. The kids were instructed to choose a rope and then jump the entire 30 minute class. I never could jump rope too well. The rope consistently banged me in the legs and it hurt. That was my least favorite thing to do in gym class. When I started a group physical training class at the body wellness center, I adored it until the jump rope came out. The fitness expert brought out jump ropes and said all of us were now going to warm up using the ropes. I pictured myself tripping over the rope and being embarrassed just like when I was 12. The fitness instructor actually measured us to a rope. I had a jump rope to my height, taught how to hold it and how to jump. My personal trainer just had us jumping rope for the equivalent of one song. I was weary afterwards. I was dripping with sweat and my heart was pumping. The cardio workout with jumping rope is amazing. Slowly the fitness expert has been increasing how long all of us jump rope. We also have l learned tricks like jumping on one foot, running plus turning with it. I feel so great about my jump rope skills. I also like how toned my arms, legs and tummy look now. I guess it is all the heavy cardio that comes with it.
