AngieFitnessTV: Cardio Push w/ Jump Rope Intervals

 

Cardio Push w/ Jump Rope Intervals is part of AngieFitnessTV‘s 15 Minutes to Fit Series. Angie created this series of short workouts as finishers to other longer workouts and even includes 2-3 minute stretches at the end so that they are truly “finishers” to whatever workout preceded it. This workout can be used to finish off any kind of workout. Today I used the as a finisher for Angie’s Rebounder Total Body Fusion. This is a cardio workout with intensity intervals. Each exercise in this workout is done for one minute. At the beginning Angie tells us the structure is 2 low impact exercises + one jump rope interval (40 seconds of jump roping and 20 seconds of active recovery). But then she adds impact to the low impact intervals. However she does give low impact options. I wore my 8 pound weighted vest for this workout. And since I had just finished a rebounder workout and my rebounder was right there beside me, I did my jump rope intervals on my rebounder. Except I didn’t jump rope. I did various high intensity rebounder moves like fast tuck jumps. It worked well for me! But I did everything else on the floor as Angie presents it. This was a great little finisher to give you some cardio intensity.

Cardio Push w/ Jump Rope Intervals is 18:52 minutes; 30 second intro; 3 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down/stretch. Optional equipment: jump rope. You can just simulate jumping rope w/out a rope. As mentioned above, I substituted intervals on my rebounder for jump rope intervals.

  1. 2 lateral skaters + 2 hamstring curls
  2. Alternating front knee raises
  3. Jump rope interval
  4. Alternating front heel digs or skip heels
  5. Hamstring curls pulling arms down from overhead
  6. Jump rope interval
  7. 4 diagonal side steps to the front and 4 to the back
  8. Knee raise + tap back moving side to side and pushing arms overhead (this move started Angie tapping heel across other foot in the front but she pretty quickly changed it)
  9. Jump rope interval
  10. 3 side steps (or puddle jumpers as Cathe calls them) + one hop
  11. 4 traveling alternating knees moving forward and 4 front kicks moving forward (pull arms down from overhead with knees and do alternating punches with kicks)
