Skip your way to health

Are you worried about all those bulging tyres around your almost non-existent waist? Desperate to lose them and are wondering how? Well, just get a skipping rope! 

Experts say that skipping can prove to be extremely beneficial for you - an hour of skipping will burn off over 1000 calories. And the best thing is that you don't need to enroll yourself into an expensive gym to get going. It can be done in the comfort of your home, at the beach or in a nearby park. So, go on, lose it! 

-If you are doing it for the first time then begin slow. Gradually increase the amount of time from a few minutes daily to around 20 minutes. 

-Your shoulders, arms, legs and abs get a good exercise. 

-Skipping is an amazing cardio workout - it allows your body to burn fat more effectively. 

-Skipping increases coordination between your feet and hand movements and also improves your agility, reflexes, posture and flexibility. 

-If you are regular with this then it will increase your endurance levels. 

-Skipping is known to strengthen bones. 

-Bored to skip alone? Get a friend to accompany you. Make sure there is great music too pep up your workout. 

-Avoid getting tired faster - change your skipping style every half and hour.
