Jump Rope

This is one of my favourite 'do at home' cardio workouts at the moment. My skipping fitness is gradually increasing, but I find the mountain climbers really tough!

Jump Rope: 30 minute duration, high intensity, long intervals

If you don't have a jump rope, simulate it. Jump for 3 min. at a shot, off the toes of both feet. Rest by continuing to jump shifting your weight from side to side, whole foot down for two minutes. Do this three times. Next cycle, decrease the time to 2 min. jumping, 2 min "mountain climbers" (no rope - hands on floor running in place in push up position), 1 min. recovery jumping. Repeat three times...

That sounds innocuous but I bet it's a killer!
