Nowadays, it's not uncommon to find folks engaging in healthy early morning and/or evening jogs. Indeed, the quest for a trimmer, healthier self has significantly increased for the Nigerian populace in the last few years and nothing could be better than this development.

The benefits of exercising cannot be emphasised and even if you can't afford to go to a gym, there are a few great exercise routines you can try right from the comfort of your bedroom, one of such exercises is skipping.

We recently sought out celebrity fitness trainer and rap artiste, Uzikwendu and he shared with us 5 great things you can gain from skipping.


  1. Works your heart: When you skip, you work your heart and this causes your heart rate to go up which is an all round good thing with exercising.

  2. Works shoulders: In the course of skipping, you work your shoulders which is also a good thing.

  3. Burns fat: Looking to burn stubborn fat? Then get yourself a skipping rope and get to it. It's cost-effective and highly effective.


It's important to note  that skipping isn't just about jumping over the rope but rather, it's about having proper hand and leg cordination. Only when this is done right will you truly achieve the aim of skipping.
