5. Jump rope conditioner
Jumping rope is one of the most underrated workouts for coordination and athleticism. It’s also the perfect warmup for any workout. Cheyne Zeller, C.P.T., a New York-based strength and conditioning coach at New York Health and Racquet Club created this routine to improve coordination and sweat off the pounds.
Directions: Do 10 reps of each type of jump. Then, sprint for five seconds, turn around, and sprint for another five seconds to the rope. Do not rest between jumps. Vary the types of jumps every time you return to the rope.
