Last week, I decided to skip (jump rope) as my workout. My target was 1,500 jumps.
I got into my workout gear, took the skipping rope and started.
The longest continuous skipping I did was about 180 jumps. (The most I remember doing was 350, one or two years ago).
When I finished the 1,500, I was still feeling quite strong and I was not really sweating much.
My wife joined me and skipped to 600.
I then posted on Facebook that I had skipped 1,500 times and urged my friends to try it this holiday season. One friend jokingly asked me how I was able to count 1,221 1,222… while skipping. I answered that I was counting 1,2,3,4,5…70…1,2,3,4…80 and so on 🙂
Some friends said that they cannot skip that much. One said he was unable to skip to 100 (or was it 50?!).
I think I will write a simple plan to get anyone interested to be able to skip up to 1000 times in a workout.
