Yes you read that correctly.
Fun and cardio aren't two words you usually associate with one another.
I have nightmares of spending a zillion minutes on a cardio machine getting nowhere. I totally look at the clock after what has seemed like 40 minutes only to find out its been 4. Ughhhh.
A good friend of mine inspired me to try something new for cardio and now I love it.
- it burns a ton of calories
- its easy
- its fun
- its inexpensive
- it improves cardio fitness and tones your body
- it sculpts your legs, bum, shoulders and arms
- you don't need to do it for very long
- you can do it anywhere
- you can easily travel with it
I use a good, lightweight jump rope, put on my running shoes, blare some tunes and jump rope for about 10 - 15 minutes a few times a week. I like to do intervals to step it up a notch - 30 seconds of going as fast as I can and then regular/slow pace for a minute.
When the weather is nice, try it early in the morning outside with no music - and listen to the world wake up.
"Those who don't jump will never fly..."
