A jump rope workout with hopping, jumping and skipping for Easter. This HIIT workout has skipping mixed with HIIT rounds. The HIIT exercises are not skipping but there is hopping and jumping and they do use the rope. There are new creative exercises again and the cardio exercises are combined with a brutal ab exercise. I even put an alternative in case you find it challenging too.  || Read more

This cardio ab workout gets your heart pumping with lots of skipping, and yes, although I love skipping, you can alternate for another form of cardio, like mountain climbers, high knees or jumping jacks. This is a 3 part workout. The first part is the cardio part. The second part is HIIT intervals with dynamic jumping, burpeeing and sandbag exercises, for even more cardio. The third part is also HIIT training intervals with 3 Swiss ball ab exercises. Each part takes about 3 minutes and they get rotated and done 3 times each.  || Read more

This skipping workout is made up of 3 time challenge rounds. In each one you alternate a skipping exercise with another fast paced bodyweight exercise.  60 reps of skipping is done before, after and in between each of the fun and diverse full body exercises. This gives you an action packed non-stop great cardio workout and challenge.  Each round has 300 reps of skipping and so you end up with 900. Do 100 reps warm up, or afterwards, to make it 1000 reps. If you don’t know how to jump rope, or do not have proper space to do it in, you can alternate mountain climbers, high knees (running on the spot with high knees) or jumping jacks.   || Read more

This fun and fast moving ball workout features the Ugi and also has a Swiss ball being used for a couple exercises. This workout is a little longer than usual, but workouts using the Ugi always somehow seem more fun. This workout moves alog quickly. It is fast, dynamic and filled with cardio. It has 4 rounds and in each you alternate rounds of intervals (HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training) with skipping.  This will take approximately 20 minutes or longer if you take breaks between rounds. Try to get through it as quickly as you can.  || Read more

This skipping based workout has 10 rounds and even though it is skipping based, if you can not skip for any reason, you can alternate the skipping for another cardio based exercise, such as high knees or mountain climbers.  I will admit that I overindulged over the holiday season and I was feeling it. ..and to boot, the evening before doing this workout I ate a huge bowl of salty popcorn, which I love.. and among other stuff. yikes!  I was feeling it but I also knew that a longer cardio based workout was going to make me feel so much better afterwards. It did. It can be tempting to avoid doing workouts if you have over indulged, but trust me, you will feel so much better afterwards. Your metabolism will be boosted and it leaves you wanting to eat healthier.  || Read more

This workout is a long one but a good one! It has lots of cardio built into it and will work on mostly lower body (legs, butt) and abs. For this one I did 3 rounds of the 2 parts. The first part is a time challenge that took me just over 3 minutes for each round and the second part is interval training rotating 3 awesome sandbag exercises and it is almost 7 minutes. So doing one round of the 2 parts will take about 10 minutes. My initial intention was to do 4 rounds of this, but as I was expecting company and was already at my time limit (was giving myself 30 minutes) I changed it to 3 rounds. So, that being said.. if you are up for the 4 rounds go for it! ..and conversely if you feel like doing 2 or even one round of this – great. Do whatever it takes to get yourself up and moving! ..but however you do it, push yourself while you are in the ring and do your best. You will feel great about yourself after!  || Read more

This workout is made up of 3 rounds and each is exactly the same with 4 minutes of intervals followed by 100 reps of High Knees Skipping, or just do High Knees if you can’t skip for any reason.  The interval exercises are mostly done with sliders, which make the exercises really fun! ..and I feel confident they are just as effective as I can often feel them the next day. This may be because slightly different muscles are being engaged and used when performing the exercise, and that is what we are going for – diversity.  A couple exercises are done with a medicine ball and you can use any other weighted object for these. The rounds are fast paced and the skipping boosts your heart rate, which is great for raising the metabolism and driving oxygen through the system. In my books this is always great. Do the 3 rounds back to back as fast as you can.  || Read more
