3 Fat Blasting Jump Rope Workouts
The jump rope is a powerful workout tool. It’s great for building cardio fitness, agility, balance and bone strength. It’s also easy to carry around and is much cheaper than a gym membership.
That’s why we’ve put together these three jump rope workouts you can do at home or in the garden. Before you get started though, it’s vitally important that you buy the correct ropes. If you’re a beginner go for a heavier rope which will make you jump more slowly, allowing you to focus on technique.

So there you have it, our selection of jump rope exercises you can do at any time. If you’re feeling more adventurous then cross over to Huffington Post, which has some serious workout routines that are not for the faint-hearted. Enjoy!
