The inspiration for this post came from the fact that I am incredibly out of a shape. I’m the type of person who walks up the stairs and then attempts to stifle how truly out of breath it made me. I hate working out. No, it’s not because I’m necessary lazy, I just don’t have time for it. I’d rather go to the dentist than the gym and there are plenty of other activities I’d prefer to fill my day with.
However, working out is incredibly important. I genuinely wished I had a liking for it because I am a health conscious person and I want my body to be in the best shape possible. That being said, I searched high and low for a workout that fit my schedule, my dislike for the gym, and also didn’t include running…. and this is what I discovered.
Ladies and Gentleman…. THE JUMPROPE!
You probably remember during recess in grade school they would hand out jump ropes. Well, let me just tell you this, jumping rope is not as easy as it was in elementary school. The first day I picked up a jump rope, I literally thought ‘I cannot believe I used to do this for fun’. However, it is a truly amazing workout. I can crawl out of bed and start working out. No gyms, no running, quick, and effective.
Jumping rope for ten minutes is equivalent to running an 8-minute mile.
So how do you make it fun? Time yourself with music. I started with one song (because trust me, it will be the longest three minutes of your life), and moved up to two. Whoooo. Big whoop. You can jump rope for two songs… I know that is what you’re thinking but just try it. It’s HARD.
