Skipping for fat loss

 

skipping workout

 

Skipping has to be one of the most time-tested methods of cardio training around. It is simple, effective and require no expensive equipment and can be done almost anywhere.

 

Skipping (or jump rope for some) also involves your whole body so its great for burning a load of calories and will get your heart rate up in no time.

 

It may take a little practice if you haven’t done it for a while, and I’m guessing most people won’t have. If you do struggle with technique in the beginning, using an imaginary rope can work until you are able to skip with the rope for long enough to get a decent workout from it.

 

For a great calorie burner, grab yourself a skipping rope (or use your imaginary one), a stopwatch and give this workout a go:
