What a wonderful way to test out your breath control/work on your breath control! Jumping rope is HARD!
WHICH, leads me to another challenge to present to you dear readers! Since the weather is warming up, if only for a few days, it's time to start thinking about fun times in the park. You can buy a jump rope for as little as $4. Go out, buy one, and try to jump rope for 30 seconds straight! It's way harder than it looks. If that is too easy, try 1 minute and so and so forth. THEN try singing whilst jumping! Build up your cardio, strengthen your muscles, improve your breath control, and tone up your body. Maybe one day you can be as amazing as the US Naval Academy!
If you aren't ready for the fancy US Naval academy moves, check out this video from Expert Village.
And here is advice from eHow on how to buy the perfect jump rope for YOU! (And, no, it's probably not the thin plastic purple sparkly one with The Little Mermaid stamped on the handles - as tempting it is.)
