Skipping/speed Rope?

any good?

ive had one for a while and have not used it much! I was thinking about using it as a form of cardio fat burning but i find my calves tire to quickly for it to be utilised. However whats your opinions?

    Skipping rope is an excellent form of cardio. Your calves only tire quickly because they are not used to the exercise.

    If you persevere with skipping your calves will not tire from the exercise.

    Skipping can be anaerobic or aerobic depending on what speed you skip at.

    if you just skip at a steady pace it will be aerobic.

    Happy new year mate!

    Try to stay Looser and More Relaxed as you do it (This will also come with practice), I imagine at the Moment you staying very tight and tensing up, this will cause your calfs to cramp and will also increase it Anaerobically!

    It's down to technique - the better your technique, the easier you'll find it. Then you can start making it harder for yourself by varying speed, leg pattern (LRLRLR LRLLRRLLLRRR LLLLLLLLLLRRRRRRRRRR etc.), adding intervals (10s sprint, 10s active recovery), raising knees, raising legs, crossing hands (as the rope passes your feet, cross hands quickly so that next time you jump your arms are crossed) and combinations of these things. Damn, you could even sing too :-)
