3) ROPE SKIPPING
improve your aerobic enduranceIf you’ve never skipped rope before then you should start now. It’s a great way to increase endurance to your breathing, legs and improves your balance and co-ordination.
Here’s an example of an effective rope skipping exercise:
Light skip for 2 minutes
Increase pace for 30 seconds and lift your knees right up when skipping
Repeat for 15 minutes
There are many different skipping techniques but the most common and easiest one to start off with is the stationary running technique (you’re just basically running on the spot while timing the rope).
Nearly all boxers implement this for better footwork. As you get better, you may want to practice different techniques, not only does it look good but it’s also fun.
