Jump Rope Cardio for Beginners #2

JRCBeginner2

This series is slowly progressive so that you are consistently improving up on the skills you've learned the last time. Your daily homework is very important at this stage in order to get into the intermediate level fast. Once you get comfortable with all the basic jump rope skills, you won't have to practice daily anymore. It's like riding a bike or driving a car. It will take roots in your subconsciousness and become your second nature. However, that is going to take some time and effort, so practice daily - it takes only 5... [more]

    Really enjoyed this one, I made it harder with exchanging JR combos for same rep beast kettlebell swing.😊

    Last beginner one you gave us an option of a harder JRC. Should there be one here too or is this intense enough? Obviously I haven’t tried it! Maybe I should and see for myself 🙂

      I was wondering this also, is there an alternative for advanced? Thanks 😊

    Love this one, used my weighted vest and did all the jump rope in a row then did all the bodyweight in a row. Did harder variations of jumps and burpees. You can make any workout your own by adding weight or increasing reps and or speed!

    This is a nice workout, but definitely not a challenge for a more advanced member. I substituted 1 min of jump rope for all of the jump rope sets of 10 and it gave me a nice mellow cardio, perfect since my energy levels are down from being sick this week. Same goes for the new Low Impact workout this past Tues. Nice, but not challenging if you are advanced. You can definitely tailor this workout to easily increase the intensity (1 min double unders or high knees, or 5 double unders for all the body weight sets instead of 4 bounces).

    I agree though with some others that it would be nice to have a little more attention paid to the advanced community for all around fitness (not just the extreme upper body workouts). It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve had a schedule and new workouts that were fun fast paced full body workouts with jump rope or kettle bell or bodyweight. I know it’s impossible to please everybody, but I miss feeling like Zu is actively engaged and thinking about the hard core part of this community, as well as those just starting or restarting their fitness journeys!

    Hi Zu…I am skipping this series for the time being…maybe I will come back to this later, trying to make it more intense. But anyways I am also jumping rope today! 🙂 See you all and take care.

    Ah dear Scott, the link is not working on side bar menu…we can not click on it. Also what changed in search because I am trying to find the workouts by the name or name and number and I am not able to find it. It is showing workout schedules instead of the workout I typed on search box. The search engine was so good last year. Kindly check what can be done to make it more effective. Thanks a lot.

      Fixed the link, thanks! We haven’t changed anything in search — what did you try in the search box? If I type “jump rope 2” it comes right up at the top of the list…

        Hi Scott…I just checked again and I typed strech & tone #34, it shows weekly schedules, also I tried Upper body inferno and it came something else. Anyways, I tried with another names and it came properly. Thanks. See you and take care.

    I did Jump Rope Cardio Kettlebell #8X instead. it was so intense and super awesome. One thing I have learnt from Zgym is to know what workouts to choose to target my needs when I want to alter from the schedule. And add my own bonus exercises.

    Will do this shortly. I agree that one of the things I love most about the Z gym is that we have so much variation based on what our goals are. This one will be nice today given the lower body/heavy weight from the low impact. Also looking forward to some nice cardio. I’m going to steer away from Z’s weekly schedules for a bit and do lifted butt and summer shred (will continue with stretch and tone Wed and Sun), going to Mexico in a month and want to look my best! I love that I can change it up whenever I want 😊 Have a great day Z and fellow Z gym members!

    ok – just finished…let me say with some modifications this can def be an ‘advanced’ w/o. I did high knees when Z was counting the 3 and 4 jumps in a row (at first just did straight skipping and figured what the heck, might as well practice high knees?)…aside from that all the body weight moves were great, and I found myself actually liking burpees (who am I??). Anyway my point is don’t shy away bc it’s labeled beginner, you can make it your own! Thanks Z!
