What if you really enjoy your workouts, but you need just a little more? Adding Jump Rope or Jumping Jack sets into your existing routine could simply be the solution! These exercises can be done in different variations, but for the purpose of them being used as an active rest just keep it standard and simple. Try performing these exercises in-between sets or after each exercise. It is not necessary to do as many jumps as possible each time, but instead use these to keep your heart rate up while you recover from your main focus muscle group. Although these exercises can be very beneficial during a workout, they can also be done before a workout as a warm-up or after a workout for a final burnout.
