  • I first met the folks from Jump N Rope at Flatirons CrossFit during a seminar. Great people and very helpful, friendly, and passionate. I recently purchased a couple of speed ropes and skipped the shipping by picking them up at the Jump N Rope gym in Louisville. Not only was my order ready in 24 hours but everyone was great to do business with. Highly recommend Jump N Rope. Now for my triple-unders!

    This abs-focused jump rope workout is courtesy of Molly Metz, a competitive jump rope athlete and coach at , a jump rope gym in Louisville, Colorado. She says she likes this workout because it challenges a wide range of muscle groups at once. For this workout you will need the following exercises:
    Mountain Climbers: Start in a high plank, on your hands, not your forearms. Jump your right foot to the outside of your right hand. As you bring your right foot back, simultaneously jump your left foot to your left hand. Count every time your right foot jumps forward.
    Jump Rope Speed Steps: This is almost a skipping motion over the rope -- you pass one leg at a time over the rope as it comes beneath you. Try to move as quickly as you can and count only every time your right leg hits the ground.
    Air Squats: Perform this body-weight squat like you're lowering into a chair. Your hips should drop just below your knees; keep your shoulder back and chest up.
    Bicycles: Lie on your back with your knees up and your shins parallel to the ground. Extend your right leg out as you crunch towards your left knee with your upper body. Repeat on the left side. Count every time you complete a rep on the right side.
    Walking Lunges: There should be 90-degree angles in both legs at the bottom of your movement. Your back knee should barely touch the ground.
    Jump Rope Backwards Jumps: This takes some practice. Instead of turning the rope forwards, turn it backwards, jumping right before it hits the back of your feet.
    Jump Rope Single Leg Jumps: Jump repeatedly on either the right or the left leg.
    Burpees: Plant your hands on floor, jump your feet back, and lower your chest all the way to floor. Then jump up and clap your hands overhead. Repeat.
