BENEFITS OF JUMPING ROPE

Jumping rope is one of the best exercises for improving cardiovascular health that we have. And, the added benefit, is that this piece of equipment is one of the cheapest pieces of fitness equipment that you can purchase which proves that you don’t need a ton of money to be fit & healthy.
The fitness rope is used in many sports as a conditioning exercise. After adding this exercise to your fitness routine, you will notice a change in your body after a few weeks. You will find that your reflexes have improved, your endurance has been greatly enhances, and your coordination is much better than it was before you included it as part of your normal routine.Another really great thing about this exercise is that you can practically carry it anywhere. Unlike a set of barbells, medicine balls, treadmills, and the like - the jump rope, aside from running shoes, is about the most portable piece of fitness equipment that you can carry. And you can use it just about anywhere. On a nice day, you can simply go outside or to the park and exercise outside. On rainy days, if your ceilings are high enough, you can use it indoors as well.If you have never used this type of equipment as kid, it may take you a bit of time to become adjusted to it and to become coordinated enough to use it without tripping over yourself.The jumping rope is also a virtual calorie burning machine. All of the major muscle groups of the body are put into motion. The upper torso including the arms, shoulders, and chest. and the lower part of the body such as the thighs and calves. And the intensity of the exercise can be increased by simply spinning the rope faster as you jump.The only real bad thing about jumping rope is the strain that it can put on your ankles and feet, especially if you are heavy. You can mitigate this, to a certain extent, by jumping rope on padded floor surfaces that can absorb the shock of your body weight as you jump up and down.Having the right shoes is important as well. You want to have shoes that support your arches and have sufficient absorption padding on the soles. If, however, the combination of the padded floor and good support shoes, still give you foot discomfort, you should temporarily suspend jumping rope from your fitness routine until you can see a foot specialist to determine if you have a problem with your foot or legs.

Fitness Tip: When working out, don’t measure your success by how much weight you lose. Measure your success by whether or not you would survive being a member of the Fellowship.

also during the hunger games, battle royale, zombie apocalypse.

Any fictional setting really. If you can survive it, you’re looking good. If you don’t think you can, you got more work to do.

Ugh—I woke up 3rd day in a row with a not feeling good about myself. -.- So frustrating. I know I’m hitting my targets, the only thing I haven’t been super strict on is cardio, so I need to start factoring that in. Driving me crazy!!But it’s okay. Because I am beautiful the way that I am. Because of WHO I am! I am beautiful 10 pounds heavier and I am beautiful 10 pounds lighter, because I love myself. Please, please, please love yourselves! We are more than body fat and muscle and butts and boobs. We are smiles and sunshine and laughs and tears and joy and love and heartbreak and hopes and dreams. There is SO much more than just the way that you look. When you’re feeling low, focus on your positives. Focus on your laugh, your smile, your never-ending empathy, your nice jawline, luxurious hair, sense of humor, or delicate feet—we all have beauty within us and on us!!Keep trying, don’t give up. Trust the process. Take it one day at a time, but LIVE YOUR DAMN LIFE. Love yourself, love yourself, love yourself. I cannot stress that enough. You are worth so much. Smile and persist and achieve, and please,
Love yourself.I took some pictures and tried to focus on the positive parts of me, even if I didn’t feel lean or particularly confident! I love my smile, I love that I am down to earth, I love my ability to relate to others, and I love the people that support and lift be up every day, because life is hard and you all make it that much easier. <3 Thank you for being you.
