Has it ever come to your thoughts why boxers, who are arguably some of the fittest athletes around, regularly perform skipping drills to help with their hand-to-eye coordination and cardiovascular fitness? So why not introduce some jump rope into your workouts and.
Skipping is great for your overall fitness, whether it’s part of a warm-up or included in your main exercise session, you could reap some of the fitness benefits
If you pay close attention to most boxers especially light weights, they look like they’re dancing on air as they skip in the gym - they have honed their skipping skills and technique through many hours of practice. Skipping is a straightforward exercise, but to get the most from your routine you should make sure that you adopt the following correct technique:
Programming your Skipping
By adding skipping to your exercise programme, it brings a wide range of fitness benefits. Additionally, studies have shown that skipping is a great for burning calories and depending upon your speed and intensity, 10 minutes of skipping can burn off as many calories as a 30-minute run!
If you're looking to shed some unwanted pounds while you're at home, because you can’t get to gym, or even currently going to the gym but stuck for routine for space. These are the massive exercise that can help you burn away unwanted fat, which (when combined with a healthy diet) will help you to achieve the body of your goals.
Metabolic Resistance Training
This training method works on the concept that if a person performs exercises that engage their entire body (or as many muscles as possible), then this will boost their metabolic rate and increase the number of calories they burn. The exercises should be completed at a high intensity and one after the other for the best fat burning gains
A simple but effective fat burning exercise is high knees. Remember when carrying out the exercise to bring your knees up as high as you can towards your chest and keep your back straight, swinging your arms to stay balanced. This exercise will soon get your heart racing which is essential for burning fat.
One of the best ways to burn fat is through interval training. It doesn’t matter whether you complete your interval training through running, on a rowing machine or a bike, the exercise will help you lose weight. This is because interval training increases your growth hormone and adrenaline levels - both of which suppress your appetite and help your body to burn fat.
