..Now, a few things to go over regarding Jump Roping and what you can expect for the week.

1. I've posted this before, but I will again because it gives you a good idea on jump rope: https://www.fitnessblender.com/articles/best-jump-rope-for-fat-loss-workouts

2. No jump rope? No problem! You don't even need one to participate. All you have to do is bring your beautiful self to the mat and pretend you have a jump rope. Just go through the motions like you have one and it should do the trick. And don't forget your bad dancing option. ;)

3. The workouts this week will feature jump rope in various amounts everyday. It's a cardio function so it can be done daily, but in knowing that, I've still structured the week so that some days have more jump rope than others; or the jumping is entirely in the extra credit leaving it up to you to decide how much jump rope you feel you want to tackle. Note to those that don't know me here at the FB Community, I am not a professional trainer or program builder like K&D. This is just purely for community fun. So I strongly encourage you to modify or adjust to your certain needs if a day/workout seems like too much or not right for you.

4. Prepare to be sore, especially if you are new to jump rope. You can expect your calves to start talking (yelling, possibly screaming) at you, so you might want to add/ do extra calf stretching to your cool downs if they aren't in there! ..Jump rope is also a total body toning exercise, so don't be surprised if you're arms feel it too from all that swinging.

5. Like how we've done in the past with most of these community challenges, it would be pretty cool, but certainly not required, to post a pic of your #JumpCompletes when we finish the challenge so we can all celebrate together and flood the forum with #JUMPComplete ..Be it a selfie, a thumbs up, your jump rope partner in crime or whatever you want! You get the idea. Share if so desired!

6. And most importantly, have fun! That's all this challenge is meant to be. Just a bunch of us at the FB community, sweating it out together. Just keep in mind that if you keep messing up with the jump rope, try not to get frustrated, and take breaks when you feel winded. It does take practice to get the rhythm down and build a cardiovascular endurance.

I know this became an awful lot to read, but I want you to go in fully informed. I will be making Check-in Posts every day of this challenge, posting the workouts we will be doing that day, so you can tell everyone how you enjoyed/endured the Challenge.

Good Luck, Blenders! :D
