Do eight rounds of double-unders (rope passes twice under the feet on each jump) on Tabata time.
If you can’t do double-unders yet, then just do normal jumps or alternate 1 round of normal skipping with 1 round of double-unders. Worst case scenario, if you can’t do skips consistently, then just do jumping jacks.
This is a great Tabata routine courtesy of Suzana from BodyRockTV. This is only part 1 of her routine but for beginners and as a cardio workout, its already a killer. Don’t believe me? Think its easy? Give it a try and see for yourself.
In this routine, you skip rope with high knees – 20 seconds on at maximum intensity, then 10 second rest. Repeat 8 times for a total of 4 minutes.
