If you are like some of us in the working world, we spend a lot of our time either in an office or at home with our families - there is little time for things like exercise and getting fit. We know that with expectations of getting a full eight hours of sleep and working an full eight-hour shift with an hour for lunch, that only leaves seven hours in the day to hang out with family, eat dinner, help the kids with homework, put them to bed, not to mention the commute to and from work every day.

Phew. That is a workout in and of itself, no?

Well, if you are one of those people with that kind of life and you really want to get in some kind of exercise, we have a couple of ideas for you. And, naturally, they involve ropes. 

More specifically, a jump rope. A simple jump rope can be a versatile tool for helping you get in a quick workout for a couple quick minutes during each pause in your day. Yes, while it seems like you are always on the go, there are pauses - coffee breaks, waiting to go into a meeting, or waiting for dinner to be ready after you get home just as examples.

Of course, one quick exercise you could do - provided, of course, you are a little coordinated - is to jump rope. You can stand up from your computer workstation for a couple of minutes and get in 100 jumps, as an example. You are encouraged to leave your computer for a brief eye break every couple of hours, so why not take advantage of this pause? You can also jump rope as you walk down hallways in your office or as you walk to lunch. As you get out of your car in the morning, you can jump rope for 60 seconds, and do the same when you return to your car.

Another exercise you can do would be pull-ups using a jump rope and a chin bar that may be set up in your house. Perhaps while dinner is getting ready or as a de-stress exercise as soon as you get home, you can throw the jump rope over and around the chin bar, grab the ends of the rope with your hands and pull yourself up and down for 30 or 60 seconds. 

These are just a couple of examples of ways you can use a rope to help you get some exercise in an otherwise jam-packed day that prevents you from getting to a gym. Try these out for yourself - but make sure you get a strong, sturdy rope to meet your needs first. We can help you find the right rope to help you get your workout in, no matter where you are or what you are doing.
