The Jump Rope
|These kids are fitter than you|
Normally used as a warm-up, jump rope exercises can be very beneficial if you're trying to lose weight as it is one of the most commonly done exercises out there. Not only does doing it tone your muscles but also makes them stronger. Like I said, it's really good if you're trying to lose weight and there's no need to go to a gym as you can get a jump rope basically anywhere (well, not ANYWHERE).
Be careful not to use it on carpet, grass or anywhere that's soft. Not only does that stop you from jumping properly, the rope can get caught and slow down as well, making you work harder than what is necessary.
