The Best Cardio Exercise You’re Not Doing

About the Author: Eric Bach

Anyone who’s struggled to gain muscle lives with a deep-seeded fear that if they make the wrong move regarding training or nutrition everything they worked for will evaporate.

Is no aspect of fitness is this more obvious than the world of conditioning.

Former skinny guys like me pretend that too much conditioning will inevitably cause their powerful body to wither from a high-performance beast to an emaciated marathoner.

As a result, they skip conditioning and get less jacked, lower baseline health markers, and become more prone to injury.

Rather than conditioning they sit around eating twinkies, despising cardio and get gassed at the mere whisper of conditioning.

If I were to ask you, “What’s the the best cardio exercise you’re not doing” what would you say?

Sled Pushes?

Nah, it’s even simpler than those—the jump rope.

While you might not immediately see the jump rope as sexy as sprints or sled work, the fact is it’s been an indispensible tool from everyone to prize fighters to football players to fitness models for generations.

These days, however, the jump rope seems to have fallen a bit out of favor and as become an extremely underutilized training device.

It’s time to re-think the jump rope. That ends here. Because it truly is the ultimate for accelerated fat loss, unreal conditioning, and increased athleticism.

    I didn’t know that jump-rope can be a form of cardio exercise. We really need to try this. Cardio is important for our health and fitness.
