If you ran track in high school, you've got this one down. But for those of us who spent more time running for student council than running laps, try this explosive move to get your heart rate up and work your quads, calves, and hamstrings. Either have two friends hold the rope for you or tie it between two stable objects at about knee height. Back up about ten feet and run at the rope, jumping over it one leg at a time. Turn around and jump again, this time with the opposite foot leading to challenge your coordination. Tip: Lean forward over your front leg and really get your back leg up so it doesn't catch on the rope.
You don't need fancy gym machines to burn calories and tone your whole body. Try these fun, fat-burning moves that only require a jump rope!
