Don’t you feel better if you’ve feeling super skinny as well as carrying a sexy little Chanel Handbag? I know I do!
Thats why I’ve just taken up jump rope as a quick and effective way to start my day. I’ve managed to nail down a 5 minute high intensity cardio workout each morning to get my heart racing and start up my metabolism for the day.
I never thought that I would enjoy skipping, but my Crossfit friends are always talking about how many double unders they did at today’s WOD, or something like that so I thought I’d give it a go.
And I’m glad I did. I’ve already lost 5 pounds, but I feel absolutely amazing too. Not only have I dropped a dress size, but I’m saving money by working out at home instead of going to the gym, which means more cash to spend on handbags, shoes, dresses and all of my favorite girly accessories!
So for the skipping, I just bought one of the ropes that were reviewed at http://www.bestcrossfitjumprope.com , then came up with a really basic routine. One minute of gradual warm up, 3x 30 second high speed burst followed by 30 second slow skips, and a one minute cool down. I’ll add a few minutes of stretching afterwards too followed by a high protein breakfast.
This sure beats drive for 20 minutes to the gym, working out for an hour, 20 minutes home, and showering up. I can get the whole lot done in no time at home!
