Khloé Kardashian has officially solidified herself as a fitness guru in our books (well, okay, she’s at least someone who gives us MAJOR fitness goals on a literal daily basis). She’s always been super open and honest about her struggles with fitness and body image, and even has a new fitness show on E!. So needless to say, when Khloé revealed her favorite piece of gym equipment, we were kind of expecting a fancy (cough: expensive) and hard-to-get piece of technology.
So imagine our surprise (and relief) when we found out that Khloé’s favorite gym accessory is a jump rope.
Yep, in a post on her app she wrote,
“It works your entire body because it incorporates cardio and arms and abs. I don’t think people get how hard it is to jump rope for even like 5 minutes straight. It’s great that all it takes is 5 f*cking minutes and you’re drenched. Now that’s an awesome workout!”
She went on to write, “To warm up, I normally jump for 5 minutes straight. Then, after my first quarter, I jump for 4 minutes straight. I like to test myself and see if I can reach 800 jumps in 5 minutes. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot but try it! If you can do that and it’s easy, either double it or amp it up to where you’re challenging yourself.”
Okay, we’re genuinely super intrigued by how simple this advice is. And it’s giving us some major inspiration to grab ourselves a jump rope on the way home today.
Thanks for the tip, Khloé! We’re always looking for practical advice for improving our health (that also doesn’t involve super expensive things like personal trainers or fancy gym memberships), and this definitely fits the bill.
