    Jump ropes do rule! I would use one at my gym in college (when I wasn’t feeling too self-conscious) and it’s a killer workout.

    That’s an awesome setup for an office gym!

    Jump roping is harder than it looks! Really gets the heart rate up πŸ™‚

    I *LOVE* jumping rope… actually I do it a lot, and don’t even always use a rope… I move my arms as if I was holding one…


    Have a fun weekend – I hope you’re showing us your kitchen remodel… I’d love to see, I think about remodeling mine um, almost daily πŸ™‚

      I will definitely be posting pictures of the kitchen–before, middle before, and after. LOL

    I have just found your website. I am going to take some time to read your story, but already I can tell that your accomplishment is inspiring!

    When I was working with a trainer, they used to have me do the jump rope every now and then and oh boy did I hate it. It’s amazing how long 60 seconds of jump rope is! My HR would spike, my calves would burn… whew. It’s amazing how hard that felt considering I was in pretty good shape.

    Of course, since leaving the trainer, I haven’t touched the jump rope at all. I probably should pick it back up once in a while. Anything that feels that hard has to be good for you!

      I had a similar experience with my trainer! But after yesterday’s workout I want to buy my own jump rope!
