3 Holiday Jump Rope Workouts to Burn off the Extra Holiday Calories


With the holidays just about in full swing, we know what's coming - food. And lots of it.

Holiday eating is always excessive. Christmas parties, dinners, family gatherings, and everything in between means you're constantly indulging on something delicious.

According to Associated British Foods (ref), the average person eats more than 7,000 calories on Christmas day alone! That's more than three times the recommended daily caloric intake. And we won't even get into the left-overs.

While we can't help you out with your indulgence problem, we can hook you up with some killer jump rope workouts that will help you offset some of the damage done over the next couple of weeks.

Here are three holiday jump rope workouts to burn off the extra calories.

3 Holiday Jump Rope Workouts

You already know that jumping rope can help you burn fat and boost conditioning.

But with the holiday season around, the portability of the jump rope really comes in handy.

With most gyms being closed over the holiday season, you'll need to take your training elsewhere. And that's where the portability and versatility of the jump rope really shine.

You can do your workouts anywhere, anytime - even under the misletoe.

What you're going to need:

For these workouts, all you'll need is a jump rope, a timer, and a little bit of space.

You can use any rope you wish, but if you want to get 10X - 20X the results, we suggest you use a heavy jump rope.
