Want To Lean Out? Try This!

JUMP-ROPE-FAT-BLAST-ins1

If you’re a bodybuilder/fitness enthusiast and you want to get lean there are a variety of tricks to help you reach your goal. One of the more effective ways I’ve found is to add one minute of jump roping between sets when you’re lifting. When you finish a set, grab the rope and go. You can rest before starting the next set but you should try to make the rest sessions as short as possible. The added bit of cardio will help you lean out fast.

*This doesn’t mean you can forgo your other cardio. It’s just a good way to add a little extra, painless cardio into the mix.

**If you don’t have a jumprope or you get frustrated because you’re not very good at it and you have to stop and start, you can substitute jumping jacks (the regular sort or the type where you keep your legs together while moving your arms if you find they bother your knees) or simply jump up and down for one minute between sets.

  1. That’s a good idea. I would like to take one to work as well.

    1. You certainly could…just grab the rope and do a minute or so every now and then. It’s just a small addition, not very taxing but it produces results.
