    I was going to suggest the same. I don't jump rope regularly, but the few times that I've strung together a few double-unders, my heart rate got pretty high pretty fast.

    ....or just do what the girl in the video did, lol.

    Work up to it, but I would recommend a once-a-week jump rope tabata. It's 8 sets of 20 seconds as HARD AS YOU CAN GO, 10 second full stop. I do my work sets with a high-kneed run, single-under.

    So excited to see this in a thread! We used to jump rope in a boot camp class that I went through a few years back and my jump rope is now hanging uselessly in the garage. I'm thinking it will be getting used much more after reading this. Thanks for the great idea!
