How to train with a rope to lose weight
It is clear that a couple of minutes of jumping is not enough to
dramatically lose weight, and sustain, for example, 10-15 minutes
Continuous “jumps” few people will be able to.
Therefore, I propose to alternate jumping rope with other
exercise or rest. Let’s say 1 minute jump – then 1-2
minutes of abdominal exercises, legs or upper body or just
Then jumps again. Since during the jumps strongly
pulse increases, you can not immediately sit down after their end or
lies down – it is bad for the heart. Jump, walk for 3-5 minutes,
to restore breathing and normalize the pulse.
Start at about 70 jumps per minute. Jumping,
keep your body level and do not hold your breath,
discomfort should not be. Jump a total of
10-15 minutes a day, it will help reduce weight and speed up burning
You can jump on both legs, alternating legs, and more – twist
jump rope in the opposite direction, do two jumps in one
Now a little about safety. To avoid injury
jump too high, no more than 3-4 cm from the floor.
Be sure to use shoes with rubberized soles or jump
no rubber or other coating that cushions the impact.

socks, land softly, knees always slightly bent.

eat at least 1.5 hours before class, if you do not have time to eat
thoroughly, limit yourself to tea with honey, a banana or a piece
During the class, do not drink much, so as not to overload the heart.
It is better to drink a sip every 10-15 minutes. And, of course, nothing fat
and sweet after workout.
What rope to buy
To buy the right jump rope, it is not necessary to be a coach.
Buy yourself an ordinary rope made of rubber (the rope is too light), its
длина должна быть равна вашему росту плюс 1 м. Not покупай слишком
heavy rope – during classes you can hurt yourself.
There are heaped variants of skipping ropes – with calorie counters and
jumping, need it or not – it’s up to you. This features
add excitement and motivation, but without them it is quite possible to do.
Contraindications к занятиям также есть, ведь скиппинг – очень
intense training. If you have heart and vein problems,
it is better to choose a more gentle workout.
