What You'll Need for this Workout
You will need the following tools for today's workout:
The Crossrope Starter Set comes with two heavy jump ropes - the black 1/4 lb Agility rope and the orange 1 Lb Intensity rope. For this workout I'll be using only the 1 Lb rope. We'll be using the black Agility rope for this workout.
Note - the Starter Set is not mandatory for this workout, but you will want to use a heavy jump rope to get the most out of this workout as possible.
Heavy Jump Rope Workout Routine
This week's workout is built around the OTM (On the Minute) workout protocol.
Set your timer for 5 minutes and make sure it beeps/buzzes every minute (very important). If you're using a clock on the wall, just pay attention to every time a minute is up.
Your job is to complete 50 basic jumps every 60 seconds. Whatever time remains is your rest time. So if you complete your 50 jumps in 30 seconds, you get 30 seconds to rest. If you complete your 50 jumps in 50 seconds, you get 10 seconds to rest. You get the idea.
Pace yourself and complete all 5 rounds.
We mentioned that this workout was scaleable.
Here's a more intense version for you to try -
Instead of five rounds, see how many TOTAL rounds you can complete - go until you can no longer complete 50 basic jumps in 60 seconds.
See how far you can take it!
Make sure to mark down your score (total rounds) and share it in our online community so you can see how you compare to others!
