4 Week Jump Rope Workout Challenge

4 Week Jump Rope Workout Challenge

What’s up ONNIT nation! It’s Jump Rope Dudes back again to take you through another 4 week jump rope workout fat loss challenge.

Before we get to the challenge let’s talk about why jumping rope deserves a slot in your training regimen.

Why You Should Jump Rope

Now you may be wondering why jump rope?

You could be doing a million different types of functional exercise, so why throw jump rope in the mix?

One word. Efficiency.

The number one resource we are all trying to get more of – TIME – is directly linked to your workouts. With a 30 minute jump rope HIIT workout you can expect to burn somewhere between 300 – 450 calories or more depending on your weight, throughout the course of a day.

125 – pound person = 300 calories
155 – pound person = 375 calories
185 – pound person = 450 calories

That’s the equivalent amount of calories to a massive double bacon cheeseburger, or 15 oreos, or 16 donut holes, or… you get where we’re going with this.

Do a jump rope workout and you can do a little binge eating.

Just kidding (mostly.)

Anyhow, it’s true that jump rope is also a sport, but in our case we are treating it more like a tool.

An incredibly efficient fat burning tool.

In addition to being an incredibly efficient tool here are a list of the benefits you can expect to experience when starting to implement jump rope exercises into your fitness program.

Benefits of a Jump Rope Workout

4 Week Jump Rope Workout Fat Loss Challenge
Efficient – Not going to beat a dead horse here, but to reiterate the point made above – the better you get at skipping rope – the more calories you burn in less time.

Portable – You can throw it in your bag whenever you leave the house and grab a workout anytime no matter where you are in the world. That means no more gym membership (unless you want one.)

Total body – Jumping rope activates every part of your body from head to toe. From your shoulders down to your calves you will experience the burn…we promise.

Low risk of injury – Compared to most forms of exercise jumping rope is extremely safe. You are hopping an inch or two off the ground at most if your form is correct, so the risk of injury is relatively low.

Fun – The beauty of the jump rope is that you can always learn new tricks and improve your skillset. There is no plateauing unless you choose to do so. This always keeps your workouts interesting and engaging. It’s like we always say at Jump Rope Dudes – if it’s not fun, it’s not sustainable.

Cool – Let’s face it. Those dudes who can whip a jump rope around like a ninja straight up look cool. The more you practice – the better you get – the cooler you feel.

Easy to get started – All you need to get started is a jump rope and the 4 week challenge we posted for you at the end of this article!

Improved agility – If you are an athlete looking to improve your agility and footwork then jump rope is perfect for you. There is a reason why the best fighters in the world include jump rope exercises in their training regimen.

Improve endurance – Beyond the fat burning effects discussed above, you can expect to experience a significant improvement in your endurance as well. All without leaving the driveway or parking lot outside your home.

How to Pick Your Jump Rope

Durability – The beauty of skipping rope is the freedom that comes along with it. You don’t want to be caged into working out inside, so make sure you pick up an all surface rope that is durable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Specifically we would recommend either a steel or PVC cable rope. For the handles you’re going to want a ball bearing system to extend the life of the rope as well.

Sized correctly – Make sure you are picking up a rope that is sized correctly for you. If you stand on the rope with one foot and bring both handles up towards your body, the bottom of the handle should be just below your armpit. Another good rule of thumb is that the rope should be 3 feet taller than however tall you are.

Picking a rope for your goal – Pick a rope optimized for your goals. If you want to work on your agility make sure you pick up an agility rope (lightweight rope.)

The agility rope will definitely burn a ton of calories as well, so if you are looking for agility plus fat loss that’s a safe option as well.

Alright, so you know why you should be jumping rope, you know all about the benefits and you know how to pick a rope. The next step is picking up a rope and beginning to add jumping to your current regimen.

To get you started in a big way over the next 4 weeks we are giving you some of our most entertaining and effective workouts to try out. You only have 3 of these HIIT jump rope workouts a week, so you can throw these on strictly cardio days or stack them on your normal routine.
