Jump Rope

Exercise Tip 1: Jump Rope

A simple exercise that requires a jump rope: $1 for a cheap one at the local toy store to $10 for a leather one from a sports store. You can jump rope most anywhere as long as you have high enough clearance.

Start slow, jumping twice per rotation of the rope, until you get the rhythm down. As you are able, speed up to 1 jump per rotation. This aerobic exercise not only burns calories, but also works your calf muscles, your balance, and your rhythm. Working balance has been found to not only work your muscles, but also your brain function.
