Working out can seem like a nearly impossible task on the weekends. Whether you're feeling a major hangover from the night before, or you're just exhausted from working and taking care of life's duties all week, working out can seem more like a chore on your Saturday morning.
If you're more of a weekend warrior when it comes to working out, don't sweat it! Studies have actually proven that saving your workouts for the weekend actually have huge health benefits, and can actually help you live longer!
But, you have to be doing the right kinds of workouts to reap the benefits of exercise! Doing a few crunches for 5 minutes and then calling it a day isn't going to do much to your body. You need to get in a full-body workout to get rid of all those excess calories you took in during yesterday's bar crawl (hey, we're not judging).
Fitness trainer Noam Tamir told Women's Health that one of the best workouts to incorporate into your weekend exercise routine is jumping rope! Who would've thought that our favorite childhood toy could actually help us burn up to 990 calories an hour!
But, you shouldn't just be using any old jump rope for working out. Using a weighted jump rope can give your shoulders and arms more of a workout and intensify your routine. Now, go jump into action and get back on track with your fitness this weekend!
