JUMP ROPE WORKOUT

Training

Jump-Rope-Fun

Jump-Rope

 

Recently, I have rediscovered my love for jump roping. Seriously don’t judge me… its amazing. For so many reasons lol. 

First, Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima jumps rope. I mean, anything that woman is selling I will buy. But really… HAVE YOU SEEN HER? If she’s doing it, I’m doing it. (She also has two kids… just saying.) 

Second, jumping rope is an unreal way to get both your cardio in and tone your muscles at the same time. It works both your upper and lower body, which gives you an awesome full body workout.

Third, it’s a great calorie burner is you don’t have much time or want to get your warm-up in quick.

Andddd lastly, it is SO MUCH FUN. Can you see the sheer joy on my face in the first photo? I was having so much fun I almost (key word: almost) forgot that I was exercising like a boss. It brings you back to the good old elementary school days 

You definitely need to try adding in some jump roping to your workout routine. I started doing sets of 500 as a warm-up to my core routine. It’s the best… give it a go!

My watermelon salad recipe is adapted from a recipe that one of my best friends showed me. I added cheese to mine, because everyone knows that cheese makes everything better. This salad is actually amazing, and works as a great lunch, snack, or even breakfast!

What’s in it:

  • 1 small watermelon
  • 1 generous handful of basil leaves
  • 2 limes
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Feta

Start by chopping up your watermelon into approx 1-2 inch cubes. Next, chop up the basil and throw it in the bowl. Cut up as much feta as you like in cubes, and add it to the watermelon as well. Squeeze as much lime as you like on the salad (I like lots of flava flave so I am overly generous with pretttty much every ingredient haha), and then add in a bit of fresh ground pepper. Gently toss, and voila!

This is the best watermelon salad that you will ever eat. I can hear you already (I said the same thing I promise), LIME AND PEPPER in my watermelon? Don’t ruin it! No. Just no. Trust me on this one. Try it and you will love it. So. Delish.
