If you’re looking for a way to stay in shape on the road, jump roping is one of the best options. It’s lightweight, portable, and easy to do anywhere!
Here are some reasons why you should pack a jump rope next trip:
Cardio + Core: Jumping rope is a full-body workout that improves your cardiovascular fitness while also working your core muscles. This is especially true with double unders, which require you to jump twice in the air before landing — talk about an effective way to kick it up a notch so you can get back to enjoying your trip.
High Intensity: Jumping rope is also a high intensity exercise; In fact jumping rope burns around 124 calories in just 10 minutes, and a high-intensity 10-minute rope-jumping workout is the equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging. However, as with all movement, we encourage you to set a pace that challenges you but meets your level. We do not want to push it too hard then be injured for the rest of our trip.
