With the cooler weather sneaking up on us, a lot of people are turning to the indoors for their workout routines. A jump rope workout is great for the indoors. You don’t need much space, just make sure you don’t get it wrapped around the TV and pull it off the wall or anything. Just kidding, but be careful. All you need to do is clear a radius of about 5-7 feet and make sure you don’t have anything that the rope can get caught on.
Another thing to watch out for as you do your jump rope workout in the house is to make sure you don’t whack anybody who happens to be walking behind or in front of you. I only mention this because I’ve come close Let people (especially kids) know not to come close as you’re swinging the rope.
It’s actually kind of nice to do your jump rope workout indoors. You can watch TV or listen to music, which is nice because it takes your mind off getting tired and before you know it, you’ve done fifteen minutes. It’s surprising how many calories you can burn when you’re distracted!
I prefer doing my workouts outdoors, but with cooler weather, sometimes it just makes more sense to do it in the house. This way you don’t have to worry about freezing your tail off in the snow, rain, or cold. You can simply pop in some of your favorite tunes or turn on one of your favorites shows and start jumping away the pounds.
