10 Minute Beginner Skipping Routine

July 22nd, 2009

So you want a jump rope routine but you don't know where to start. If you've got ten minutes, you've got plenty of time to get in a good workout and master your skills. Take this basic plan for a routine and make it your own. After the warm-up alternate between skipping and the boxer's shuffle. As you improve you can increase your skipping time until you're going strong for almost 10 minutes straight.

Warm up: 15-30 seconds each for 2 minutes total.

  • shoulder rolls
  • arm circles both directions
  • swing rope from one side to the other
  • two foot hops
  • boxer's shuffle (jumping lightly side to side, one foot landing a split second before the other) with or without rope swing

2 - 2:30 skip

2:30 - 3:00 boxer's shuffle

3:00 - 3:30 skip

3:30 - 4:00 boxer's shuffle

4:00 - 4:45 skip

What you expected cross-overs, jumping jacks and slalom? This is a beginner skiping routine, which means it's a lot more important that you get the technique down pat than try intricate or difficult moves. Trust me, this will get your heart racing plenty. Once you learn how to skip, you can move on to more fancy footwork and things will get a lot more interesting.
