Have you ever noticed that often when you see boxers working out they are using a jump rope? Jump ropes are a quick and easy tool to quick start your workout. Fitness Expert Michelle Yeager Turner says that even though they look easy, a 10 minute workout will leave you sweating.
In addition to helping improve cardiovascular health, Yeager Turner says jumping rope is a great tool to improve coordination, agility, quickness, footwork and endurance. It's a full body workout that can take you from a chump to a champ in no time.
About Michelle Yeager Turner:
Getting active and motivated is tough for many women--especially after having a baby. But Michelle Yeager-Turner had many challenges to bring her beloved son Maximus into the world. Gymnastics as a child, cheerleading in high school and even competitive bodybuilding couldn't prepare her for the toll it took on her body. Add ten weeks bed rest, and Michelle was ready to get moving, after her son arrived.
But she found it difficult to work out because not many gyms were sympathetic to her son crying in daycare. So Michelle found another way. She created her own at-home workouts. She learned a lot about herself and what it takes to get back on track.
