Winter Workout Tips

Winter

The Northern Grrrls may be used to frigid Wisconsin winter temps, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to force ourselves out the door into temperatures in the teens to get that workout in! We have started our Runners World #RWRunStreak challenge and it is truly helping push us all to get outside or on the treadmill for that extra workout! See the blog from greatestwealthishealth below for more tips on how to break those winter blues!

Jump Around Paired Workout

Required equipment: jump ropes!

Split participants up into pairs. For this boot camp one member of each pair will be jump-roping until their partner completes the number of reps after each exercise in parentheses! When the partner completes the required number of reps for each exercise then the pair switches! If its nice where you live you should do this outside, but this can be done inside too!

Whether you call it Skipping, Rope Skipping, Jump Roping or Rope Jumping…it is a great activity to help fight Heart Disease, Obesity, Type II Diabetes, and Osteoporosis while improving strength and fitness.
