Jump Rope Your Way Skinny

By Alya Alyssa Kattan

Looking for a super fun way to get fit, tone your entire body, and burn some major calories!  Do what celebs like Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Madonna, Vanessa Minnillo, Bar Refaeli, and Padma Lakshmi do to shed the fat.  They jump rope.

You can burn over 100 calories in as little as 10 min or up to 1000 calories an hr (depending on your weight, speed, and you can burn more calories using a weighted rope)! So jump your way to a sexy and fit body.  Jump roping gives you that long and lean look, great for cardiovascular conditioning, and maximizes athletic skills by combining agility, coordination, timing, and endurance.

I love jump roping because it’s fun, you can do it anywhere, and boy does it WORK!  You can get an insane workout in just 10 minutes.  I have included two videos below.  The first one is of a man who lost 100 pounds by jump roping.  The second video is of a fitness model who shares her jump roping workout.

    Hi Alya,

    I have a question about calories; are calories a fixed unit of energy, regardless of the source? or does our body treat calories from fat and sugar in a different way than those we take from bread, pasta or fruits for example?

    I hope it’s not a silly question, i’m just curious to know how our bodies really function

    Thanks a lot
