Jump-start your workout

If you’re anything like me you’ve grown tired of cardio routines. A great way to kick up 2014 is to incorporate skipping as a part of your workout.

Ladies, this activity doesn’t happen over night and it’s going to come with practice. Skipping not only makes you sweat, it increases your heart rate, it’s affordable and you don’t need a gym to feel the burn. Plus, it’s a lower impact activity to running, making it easier on your joints with minimal risk of injury. Try not to go over board on your first try. Skipping 60-70 times per minute is a great starting place.

Calories burned: 10 minutes= 115+ calories burned

Targets:

  • Calves (pushing off the ground)
  • Quadriceps (front leg)
  • Hamstrings (back leg)
  • Glutes
