For July 2011 Challenge, Week 2, see below for the plan: - Day 1: Running Step - Day 2: Cross Step - Day 3: Squat Jump Rope - Day 4: Combine Day 1 to Day 3 into one workout
Try to do at least 5 sets of 20 jumps per jumping style. Bonus Challenge: On the fourth day, do total 1000 jumps of the combination styles or more!
Tips: Day 1: Running Step - A slight jog is incorporated while jumping/skipping over the rope. A slightly faster pace with increased intensity.
Day 2: Cross Step - While in the air during the jump phase, cross lower legs slightly and land with legs crossed. Continue to switch with each jump.
Day 3: Squat Jump Rope - Starting in a deep squat, twirl the rope and jump over it, maintaining your squat position to really strengthen your quads and glutes. Tip: Don't straighten your legs between reps, stay in the squat as long as you can.
