Jumpe Rope / skipping - Routine 1 (including outtakes)
I've recently started skipping as another way to lose weight. As I am aging a bit more now (close to 40), I can't run as fast or as far as I used to. I know there are many people who can run marathons at old age but everyone is different. Skipping seems like a good way to still get some good cardio exercise and less taxing on the knees.
The interesting thing about skipping is that recently when I went to a swing dance class, the instructor mentioned that you should dance charleston like you were skipping. The theory is that charleston is a very bouncy dance with a pulse, so you should not do it as if you're just walking flat on the ground.
This gave me an idea - what if I combined charleston and skipping? There are some similar videos on youtube but not many of them directly relating charleston and skipping. This is my first video to work towards that.
I have included some outtakes for you as well, so you can see how difficult it is to make the video! I have basically never skipped properly before, so please be nice :) feedback welcome :)
