Start skipping rope from today!
What is the first thought that comes to your mind when somebody says exercise or workout? Gym, right? This is not something uncommon. For most of the people getting leaner and fitter means shedding sweat in the gym and running miles on the treadmill. But if truly you want to stay fit and active then it is not necessary at all to go to the gym or get enrolled in any fitness classes. All you need is a jumping rope, some open space, and little motivation.
Heavy and complicated pieces of equipment cannot always guarantee you a fit body, this can even be achieved simply by jumping rope at the comfort of your home. Jumping rope to stay fit is not something new, even the best athletes on earth do this because it’s an incredible way to exercise.
Here are five reasons why you should jump rope every day.
It improves your coordination
Skipping a rope can improve the coordination between your eyes, feet, and hands. Whether you are keeping a close watch on your feet and rope movement or not, but your brain is aware of how your feet are moving. The more variations you do with the rope, the more conscious and coordinated you will be.
Improves your cognitive function
Jumping up and down over the rope will help your brain learn new motor patterns. This will increase the nervous system communication between your brain, wrists and leg muscles, which can be beneficial in the long run.
