Benefits Of Jumping Rope As A Warm Up
The Kbands Speed Jump Rope is a great tool to use during athletic training. However, the Kbands Speed Jump Rope can also be a great tool that can be used to perform a dynamic warm up. Athletes should begin with slow, simple movements and jump rope exercises. As athletes progress in their warm up with the Kbands Speed Jump Rope they can begin to increase the pace and intensity of their jump rope exercises.
A good warm up with the Kbands Speed Jump Rope should consist of 5-10 minutes of on and off jump rope exercises that are only performed after flexibility training and myofascial release with the Recovery Foam Roller have been performed.
Different Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises
To ensure an effective and challenging workout athletes should be able to perform many different Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises. Some of the basic Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises include double jumps, double footed jumps (basic jump rope movement), alternating feet, single leg jumps, alternating high knees, side to side, and forward and back hops.
Athletes and coaches need to be familiar with these Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises and understand how each movement will affect the energy of the body and the energy of certain muscles. Knowing how to organize different exercises will allow for more challenging and effective circuit training or jump rope workouts.
To start we will break up a few Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises into groups. The first group is power. This group includes movements like the double jump and alternating high knee. These power movements are quick and explosive requiring a large amount of energy to be used by the body. These power movements should be performed toward the beginning of jump rope workouts and should not be paired against another power or leg exercise during circuit workouts.
The second category is the strength category. This group is made up of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises like the forward and back hops, lateral hops, and single leg jumps. This group of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises builds strength in the calves and aids in developing the bodies natural stretch reflex. This training will aid athletes in performing repeated bouts of power when jumping or performing agility moves. Performing these Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises both bilaterally (with both legs) and unilaterally (with one leg) helps bring greater variety and will increase the level of jump rope workouts. An example of unilateral training would be performing the side to side hops on one leg. This group of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises can be placed almost anywhere in jump rope workouts, but athletes should try to perform strength Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises following power Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises.
The final category of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises will simply be called the cardio group. This does not necessarily refer to the intensity of the Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises but rather the slower paced recovery aspect of their role in jump rope workouts. This group includes the regular two footed jump rope jump and the two footed jump with a cross (athlete crosses the hands and still jumps through the jump rope). This group of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises should be placed toward the end of jump rope workouts or as a chance for athletes to momentarily recover from intense bouts of Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises. These Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises will allow athletes to continue working by slowly lowering their heart rate.
It is up to athletes, coaches, and trainers to go to the Training Section to pair these Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises with other high intensity exercises like the Hercules Walks, Partner Bear Crawl Shuffles, and Stability Pro Training to create a challenging and dynamic workout utilizing the Kbands Speed Jump Rope.
Advanced Kbands Speed Jump Rope Exercises
Athletes who master jump rope exercises can grab a set of Kbands Leg Resistance Bands for advanced jump rope exercises. Athletes will mimic the regular movements in their jump rope workouts but will receive added resistance when performing movements. The added resistance from the Kbands Leg Resistance Bands will further increase the muscle activation received in the hip flexors, thighs, and glutes. Athletes who perform circuit style workouts with the Kbands Leg Resistance Bands will be able to perform a wider variety of dynamic and high intensity training moves to go along with the jump rope exercises being performed.
Another great fitness training tool athletes can pair with their jump rope exercises is the Speed and Agility Ladder. The Speed and Agility Ladder will work on many of the same foot work and agility principles the Kbands Speed Jump Rope works to improve upon. However, different moves and a longer range of motion can be achieved when working on the Speed and Agility Ladder. This is a great compliment to the quick and explosive movements that athletes must perform during jump rope exercises.
