Heart Rate Tip: Jump Rope: 05/24/2012

Add a Rope

To increase the amount of energy that you are exhorting during weight training add little bits of cardio in between your weight sets. Some forms of cardio that are great for this type of training are: burpees, jumping rope, mountain climbers, cycle sprints, running (sprinting), jumping jacks, and many many many more. The idea behind adding cardio is to maintain an increase heart rate to improve cardiovascular health, increase the amount of calories burned during the workout, and to increase your exercise post-oxygen consumption rate which will also increase your post-exercise fat burn.
