Choose a level that’s comfortable yet challenging for you:               

Level 1 – Perform the number of jumps listed each day followed by the 1-minute speed rope challenge.

Level 2 –  Double the number of jumps listed each day followed by the 1-minute speed rope challenge.

Level 3 – Triple the number of jumps listed each day followed by the 1-minute speed rope challenge.

The 1-minute Speed Rope Challenge

Count how many times you can successfully jump your rope in one minute. Jumps do not need to be consecutive. Calculate your daily total on the calendar.

What if I don’t have a jump rope?

No problem at all! Simply perform the challenge by jumping with an invisible rope. Pretend to turn the rope as you jump.

What if I can’t jump rope?

Each of us are at a different level when it comes to jumping rope. Try to perform the minimum number of jumps each day with the rope. For the 1-minute challenge, stretch the rope out on the ground. Count how many times you can jump back and forth over the rope in one minute.

What is the goal of April’s Jumping for Fitness Challenge?

This challenge has multiple goals. The first is to improve cardiovascular endurance. Secondly, jumping rope improves dynamic balance and coordination, reflexes, bone density and muscular endurance.

Complete the Jump Into Spring fitness challenge throughout the month of April.  At the end of the month, add up the total number of days completed, have your parents sign the bottom of the calendar and return it to your PE teacher for a certificate of completion and a shoe token.
