Today's Fitness Friday features Skipping Rope!
About Skipping Rope
Skipping rope is a highly effective lower body plyometric exercise.
An effective exercise to help develop cardiovascular capacity, skipping rope is a great tool to be used to add to your cardio routine or as a warm up for your workout. The single leg version of skipping can still be used as a warm up. To get an even greater benefit, use this lower body plyometric exercise to work on single leg power and ankle stability.
- Always skip on a flat smooth surface.
- Stay on the balls of your feet.
- Always keep a slight bend in the knees. Never land straight-legged..
