SKIP into Shape! New Jump Rope Workout


I’m back on the road for work this week which means more Hotel Gym Workouts! There are jump ropes in the fitness center of my hotel, so this morning I made up a new jump rope circuit to “skip” into shape. It was a GREAT way to fight hotel gym boredom and to include some plyometric training in my routine. I felt super athletic while doing the exercises and got a good sweat!

Here are the details…

  • Calories Burned: 400-500
  • Duration: 40-45 minutes
  • Focus: Cardio + Lower body power and explosion from the jumping and burpees
  • Brit’s Commentary: Our bodies are SO efficient! This means we constantly need to change our workout routines so that our bodies have to adjust and thus, get stronger and burn more calories. Mixing a jump rope circuit into your usual cardio routine is a great way to SHOCK your body.

Remember, if we do what we’ve always done, we’ll get what we’ve always got. #GRIT

Lots of luv, Brit

  1. Thanks for a great post…Skipping rope is totally underestimated. We do interval of 2minutes skipping and I always try to double skip the last 15 seonds of every interval…very effective!

  2. Reblogged this on denisesaylors and commented:
    Great workout

  3. Its always in my gym bag…there’s nothing like it. Nice one!

  4. double unders are my nemesis… this sounds like the perfect torture 🙂

  5. Ooh where are you traveling these days?

Let Brit know what's on your mind!
