Jumping Rope the HIIT Way

mens fitnessThe great thing about High Intensity Interval Training is that you can do it anywhere, anytime and with or without almost anything. It does sound confusing because HIIT exercises can be done without using any gym equipment, but if you want more out of your exercises then you can go for the regular gym equipment and make them your HIIT workout videos.

HIIT can be done with weights, with a gym bicycle, on a treadmill or even using a jumping rope. Yes, the humble jumping rope turns your regular exercises into high intensity fat burning exercises if you do it the right way.

The challenge with doing High Intensity Interval Training at home is that you need to get it right and you have to exercises with caution. Do not end up hurting yourself or compromising on your diet. Even if you are working out to lose weight, reduce fat intake but increase protein and carbohydrates intake. Now, all you need is a jumping rope.

How to HIIT a Jump Rope

Begin with normal jumps at your own pace. Now, try to make double jumps, at least 10 in a row. Come back to single jumps after you are done with ten and continue with single jumps ten times. Again, start with your double jumps and come back to single jumps alternatively. You need to repeat this at least 5-10 times, according to your experience with HIIT exercises.
