Jumping rope can get you in shape fast but it can be a tough workout and hard on your body.  If you are a beginner, here is a program that can get you started and won't wreck your joints.  A good jump rope can cost you less than $20 so this is another inexpensive workout. 

Preparation

Before you begin, you want to make sure you are not jumping on cement. You should jump on a hardwood floor or if you are on cement, jump on a yoga mat or thin carpet. Warm-up for 3 to 4 minutes before beginning, like walking in place. Stretch at the end and do hamstrings, quadriceps and calf stretch. * If you have problems with your lower extremities, ask your doctor about doing this program.

  7. Even though I've heard people say that jumping rope is a "beginner's exercise," it's an exercise that really does get you moving and burn calories – and the more you increase the workout, the harder it becomes. It is also an expensive workout, as indicated in the content, and you can jump rope from the convenience of your home.
