Childishly simple--but effective
Simple but not easy—the jump rope
The old becomes new again. Jumping rope is aerobic, cheap (yes, there are expensive high tech ropes), and portable.
Human Kinetics is out with a book called Jump Rope Training—go to www.humankinetics.com.
Ten minutes of jumping equals half an hour of jogging.
The muscles used in jumping also help prevent falling.
You will increase your speed, endurance, and power, too.
Next time: Jacks.
Aw, just kidding.
Do they still sell jacks? I loved those.
Can you say the words to the Lady with the Alligator Purse—Miss Lucy called the doctor, Miss Lucy called the nurse, Miss Lucy called the Lady with the Alligator Purse…In came the doctor…
something like that.
