Tools for this Workout
Here are the tools you're going to need for today's workout:
The Crossrope Plus Set has everything you need to achieve any fitness goal you desire. The set comes with four ropes - the black 1/4 Lb Agility rope, the blue 1/2 Lb Energy rope, the orange 1 Lb Intensity rope, and the yellow 2 Lb Fury rope.
For this workout, I'll be using the blue 1/2 Lb Energy rope.
Note - the Plus Set is not mandatory for this workout, but a heavier jump rope will definitely provide better results.
Jump Rope AMRAP Workout Finisher
Today's 5 minute workout is built around the AMRAP workout protocol - we'll be doing a combination of jump rope and bodyweight workouts while trying to complete As Many Reps As Possible in a set time.
Here's your objective: set your timer to 5 minutes and complete as many rounds as you can of the following sequence of exercises:
- 25 double unders
- 5 burpees
- 50 max speed alternate foot jumps
- 5 mobility walk-outs
Rest as needed but the timer doesn't stop until the 5 minutes are up.
When you're finished, mark down how many full rounds you completed in 5 minutes and come share it in our community to compare your results with other jumpers.
