I find that jump roping is a great endurance work out. If you are not used to jump roping it may be tough in the beginning to maintain a steady rhythm for a long period of time, but if you stick with it, you will get better and will be able to jump longer and even faster then you imagined.
For this workout make sure you have a jump rope that is a good size for you. You don’t want it to be too long or too short, because that can mess up your pace. If you don’t have a jump rope, you can always jump in place without the rope - but make sure you are moving your hands as if you were turning a rope. For this work out, You set your pace.
