Bored of using your jump rope to, well, just jump rope? There are tons of ways to use this simple piece of equipment to get a full-body workout. The first trick to try is the crossover, done by jumping rope as usual and then crossing your arms in front of you while the rope is in the air. Adding the crossover will challenge your jumping ability and shift the rope-turning work from your biceps to your shoulders and forearms. Tip: Alternate regular jumps with crossovers at first and then try keeping your arms crossed.
