Jump roping is the ideal way to torch calories and work every muscle in the body. Unlike the treadmill, jumping rope engages your arms as well.
Keep your toes facing forward and stay light on your feet when jumping. Use your wrists more than your arms to swing the rope. Draw shoulders down and back. Do as many jumps as possible in 1 minute.
