Jump rope for fitness— published: 11-19-2010
Jumping rope is a good way to maintain fitness, particularly in confined environments such as on board a ship. If the pace is fast, the energy expenditure is similar to running. The Navy Seals Fitness Guide suggests the following ways to add variety into your jump rope routine:
- Boxer’s Dance: Shift weight from right to left with both feet together.
- Run: Jump to the right while lifting the right knee, then switch to left side.
- Jumping Jack: Jump 2 times with feet together then on the third time, do a jumping jack.
- Knee-toe: Tap right toe on the floor, jump to your left foot while lifting left knee up high, then switch.
