A jump rope workout is a good way to break out of your normal routine and get some exercise like a kid. Its probably been since grade school that you've actually taken out a rope and skipped to your heart's content. I remember having contests with the other kids to see who could skip the most jumps without missing. Those were fun days.
Doing the same type of workout over and over again everyday can be very boring. It can actually be detrimental to the body as well. If you continue to do the same workouts that exercise the same muscles it can lead to serious injury. For this reason it's a good idea to mix things up a bit. If you're a runner, go swimming for a workout. If you're a swimmer, go running for a workout.
One of my favorite ways to mix things up a bit is to add a jump rope workout to the regimen. There's definitely nothing like going out and acting like a kid for a little bit, especially if you can get a great cardio workout at the same time. A 15 minute jump rope workout will raise your heart rate better than most typical cardio workouts. The reason for this is that it really is a full body workout. You're using your arms, legs, core, and just about every other muscle in the body to swing the rope, jump over it, and still maintain balance and coordination.
For your next workout, consider taking out the old jump rope and going for a skip.
