SPEED ROPE IN THE PARK.
As the nights are longer and warmer make the most of it, Take your speed rope in the park with you.
We all love the the great british summer time and since the clocks have gone forward we have even less of an excuse to get our butts out the front door and down to the park for a weight free workout.
There are countless exercises you can do without weights. Use what your mama gave you. That’s right bodyweight workouts are the way to go. You just need a few essential pieces of kit to help you get started.
01. COMPRESSION KIT –
Working out wearing Compression socks and tops will help you recover faster the next day. The thinking behind this it aids recovery by helping your body clear metabolic waste. (whatever that is)
02. SPEED ROPE IN THE PARK –
Buying the ideal speed rope will help you nail this double unders in your park workout. Spin that rope round twice as fast as you can and don’t forget to jump. A killer workout for time is 1000 double unders or DUs as quickly as you can. Believe me your calf’s will be sore the next day.
03. Comfy Kicks –
You need a decent pair of shock absorbing trainers. If you’re running around doing sprint drills, then using your speed rope, then box jumping, it will take its toll on you joints. Be sure to buy a comfy pair of shock absorbing trainers. I like the nike free run 5.0. If you visit nike.com you can even design your own kicks.
04. iPod –
Other MP3s are available!! To keep up the pace why not listen to some high BPM music to keep you motivated.
There are countless weight free workouts that include the use of a speed rope, so what are you waiting for? Get your lazy butt out that front door., hit the park and start working out.
