Let's Jump Rope! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Jumping rope is one of the most simple, inexpensive, most effective ways to get a work out in.

Don’t believe me?  Well, did you know that you can burn up to 1000 calories in an hour just by jumping rope?  That not only is it a fantastic cardio work out, but it’s also a total body work out?  It’s true.

Okay, stop and pick your mouths up off the floor.  I am not suggesting that you jump rope for an hour solid.  Heck, there’s no way I could jump rope for a solid hour.  BUT we are having a challenge!!!

Everyone has a jump rope, right?  No?  Then, go get one! Your mission for this challenge is to jump rope for 10 minutes every day for a week!  Just 10 minutes of your day!  That’s nothing, right?  If you can’t jump for the entire 10 minutes, I don’t care.  Take a 5 second breather and start again.  Just keep moving for those 10 minutes.  Also, we want you to time how long you can jump without stopping!

Here are the rules:

1. You must jump for 10 minutes every day.  Even if you have to stop for 5 seconds and start again, you have to jump for 10 minutes.

2. Time how long you can jump without stopping, even if it’s longer than 10 minutes!

3. Come back each day and tell us that you’ve completed the challenge for the day and how long you could jump without stopping!

So, let’s see who can jump the longest!!  Make it fun!  Jump to music! Get your kids to do it, too!  Are you with me?!  Let’s jump!
