So WHY am I m subjecting all my dancer friends to fitness invitations lately? Read on below.
Has anyone here done rope skipping as a child? I did, and I LOVED it!!
Recently (aka a few years ago) I re-discovered my love for it because of Martial Arts training.
In other words, I felt I needed to do something for my stamina because even the warm ups of TaeKwonDo class were kicking my BUTT – and in ballet (which helped me ENORMOUSLY for belly dance) class, the jumping sequences nearly did me in.
So.. I wanted to find something QUICK that I could do at home
I decided to try rope skipping again
Bruce Lee recommended it in his Martial Arts fitness book 🙂
I had some trouble with coordination at first (sometimes even now also)
Usually this means that I am ‘not fully there’ with my mind, or working on some kind of problem simultaneously.
So it’s a great Zen-test as well!
And I could only do short bouts at first (I do stretches in between)
I LOVE it!
It does get easier (AND more fun!)
Even once a week, just 10-15 minutes make a world of difference.
AND I feel more energized and happy if I do it.
So.. I’d love to spread the joy 🙂
What does this mean?
If you’d like to be able to make it through your next dance/martial arts practice session without breaking a sweat (glow 😄)
What will you need?
- a skipping rope (IF you have one!)
- sneakers/sports shoes (IF you use a rope)
- a wall or a set of yoga blocks (for stretching)
