Jump Rope for Heart Health

I will praise you, O Lord, with all of my heart; I will speak of all of your wonders. Psalm 9:1

Keep your heart strong and your spirit invigorated with a challenging jump rope workout! A jump rope is often one of the most overlooked pieces of fitness equipment. They are inexpensive, easy to transport, and can be used anywhere. Jumping rope is a great way to burn calories and get a cardio workout finished in a short period of time. 

The ideal jump rope workout uses short intervals of different exercises to alternate between cardio and strength work. This allows you to have a full body workout while strengthening your heart through the cardio exercises. Your family will also like this fun workout -kids love to jump rope! Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 10.11.02 PM
