All you need for this workout is a yoga mat and jump rope. Don’t have those? It’s okay, you can still do the workout without them (your floor might get a little sweaty though!)
At the beginning of today’s workout video I show a modification for the Heel Tap Jump Squat. If you are just starting out your workout journey and building up your strength/endurance you can use the Jump Rope intervals as a rest break between exercises. Work to your own level, and build up to the more difficult variations.
If the workout is hard, that’s a good thing. If it isn’t challenging you it isn’t teaching your body how to improve your strength and endurance. The human body is incredibly efficient at adaptation. That is why keeping your workouts challenging is imperative to making improvements.
Every once in a while I get someone who comments “you can’t even do your own workout! You’re sweating and breathing hard!” That makes me smile, because if I wasn’t challenging myself it wouldn’t be much of a workout. Remember, these are the actual workouts I do to stay in shape and maintain my level of fitness. I don’t sneak off to the gym secretly. This is it. 🙂
