Crossropes Weighted Jumpropes Workout

Jumproping is a killer workout that can be integrated into your workout for cardio, warmup, or a great finisher to make sure you are completely done with your workout.  I used to do lots of jumprope when training for gymnastics and I used it primarily for plyometric training - to strengthen my body for bounding elements on the floor.  Boxers use it for foot speed training and endurance, and even older women can do it for a weight bearing activity to prevent osteoporosis.  There - a little bit of benefit for everyone! Here's a Video showing how to do this example workout using the Crossropes as well as a Scosche Rhythm+ to track Heart Rate and the FitnessMat by Wellnessmat.  You can find all these products to do this workout on your own HERE!   

Don't forget, you can do interval training with other exercises other than Jumping Rope!  I often do circuits with timed intervals doing other exercises such as pushups, pullups, dips, rollouts, squats, and more!  I enjoy the variety of the interval training and it's nice to add in some jumprope to add variety and mix it up a bit!  You can see from the Rhythm+ data that my Heart Rate gets up there pretty quickly - especially from using the 3lb. Titan CrossRope Cable.

Dynamic Warmup

Let’s talk warmup.  Today we are going to lead you through a dynamic warmup which has 3 goals.

Goals of Dynamic Warmup

1. get your nervous system activated and ready to move

2. get blood flowing to your muscles and warm them up so they are elastic

3. get your body to start the cycles of breaking down fuel stores and get your energy systems ready to provide long term energy for exercise.  

Also, if you are focusing on a certain body part to exercise, focus more of your dynamic warmup on that area.

This will help you avoid injuries, perform better and perform longer.  Without a proper warmup you will begin your exercise routine on cold, stiff muscles and if you start pushing large loads right away you can not only strain muscles, you can also produce lots of lactic acid in the muscles which can effect the longevity of your performance.
