Khloé Kardashian Credits This Super Simple Workout for Her Toned Body
By Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor |
Khloé Kardashian hasn't always been a fitness aficionado, but her recent weight loss and continuous transparency regarding her fitness struggles have made her one of the more inspiring fitness gurus to follow at the moment. She even has a new weight-loss show debuting on E! called Revenge Body, proving she's become quite dedicated to a healthier lifestyle.
However, considering the Kardashians' affinity for all things, well, luxury, we expected Khloé's favorite fitness gear to be nothing less than some ultra-complicated machine that's only available from some elite training facility. So it came as quite the surprise that Khloé's favorite gym equipment is actually a simple jump rope. Yes, you read that right, you can snag Khloe's weight-loss secret weapon for less than $10.

"It works your entire body because it incorporates cardio and arms and abs,” Kardashian wrote on her app. 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!”
“To warm up, I normally jump for 5 minutes straight, then, after my first quarter, I jump for 4 minutes straight,” Khloé continued. “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.”
Unsurprisingly, plenty of fitness trainers swear by using the jump rope as a weight-loss tool. According to Science Daily, 10 minutes of jumping rope is equivalent to running an 8 minute mile, making this form of exercise one of the best for burning calories and building agility.
Even better? If you have enough space, this is one workout you can even do in your own home. So, the next time you're looking for a way to burn calories quickly, snag yourself a jump rope and give it a try. All it takes is 10 minutes a day for a complete body workout.
