Punch Up Your Workout with a Jump Rope

The childhood staple is just as fun today.

Cardio may not be your favorite part of your workout routine…yet. A jump rope brings you back to more carefree days on the playground, when you were more focused on memorizing rhymes and jumping as high as you could than squeezing in exercise during your lunch hour. Here are three jump ropes to add some fun to your workout.
