Why I have started skipping

/ Leave a Comment
So recently I have started to incorporate skipping into my daily routine, part of the reason for this was because I got sent a really awesome skipping rope (check out my review here) but it was only once I was sent the rope that I actually realised I had neglected something that was so simple to do and actually makes a huge difference.

If you want a easy to do exercise that burns fat like nothing then skipping is definitely the one to choose. It gets the heart rate going very quickly and before you know it you'll be sweating buckets and shedding pounds. After a short google on the internet I found out that doing two 10 minute skipping sessions will burn about 200 calories doing that over a week means an extra 1000 calories lost every week. Amazing right?

One of the other things that I love about skipping
is that it really can actually be done anywhere and you dont actually really need any professional equipment, I would recommend getting a good rope but any will really do, I've been doing my skipping in my room for like 15 mins at a time day, it really is a good full body exercise as you can change the jump you do to target different muscles. Want to target the abs? bring your knees up when you jump, want more of a stomach shred? increase the speed at which you are jumping. The possibilities are endless. Before long you'll have been skipping for ages and asking where the time has gone.

Skipping is one of my new favourite things to do as its easy reliable and has given me visible results already, I would urge everyone out there to don a rope of sorts and join me in this free, easy way to increase your fitness levels and get fit!
