Frugal Exercise: Jumping Rope

This is our hillbilly jump rope:

Hillbilly jump rope

After going through 10 or 15 jump ropes from the store -that tore up within two weeks- Abby made one from one of Lacy’s tow ropes. (This one has lasted a year.)

Time for P.E. –jumping rope!

Jumping Double

Jumping rope is not just for children, either. (Who do you think taught them how to do it?)

It is an excellent cardiovascular exercise that also improves agility, coordination and endurance.

Plus, you can do it indoors or out and it doesn’t cost a lot of money.

If you’ve never jumped rope before, check out The Jump Rope Institute for some tips.

Blessings and happy jumping,

Denese
