How to Bodyweight Skip
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand with the shoulders blades pulled back, and spine and head in good posture. Position the hands just as if you were holding a jump rope, roughly the same distance away from the centerline of the body.
Keeping a slight bend in the knees, use the wrists as if you were turning the rope. There should be minimal movement of the elbows and shoulders.
Perform quick bodyweight skips by rapidly hopping off the ground for the specified amount of time or repetitions. The movement should mimic a jump rope skip.
Bodyweight skips are an excellent, non-equipment alternative to jump rope skips. This exercise boosts metabolism, burns calories by elevating the heart rate, and improves overall fitness conditioning.
