Are You In a Cardio Plateau? We Have A Simple Fix.

Jumping rope can burn up to 1000 calories per hour.  Jumping rope also tones and leans the entire body, which is a look many people desire.  It is a fun exercise that will help you increase your agility and coordination as well.  This is how you use it. 

1). Run on your treadmill/Track for 2 minutes at a higher than normal pace.  For example.  If you are at a 6.4 pace, you want to be right around 6.9 or 7.
2). Step off the treadmill and jump rope for 1 minute straight.
3).  Repeat this pattern 5 times thus giving you 15 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training.

This should help you break through your plateau!!!!

*Note:  If you aren't good at this at first don't get discouraged.  AS you can tell by the video below, I am no master either :o)
