Infographic: Double unders to burn off your “cheat meal”


We all like to take care of our diet and keep fit, but an occasional treat is necessary and mentally healthy. Skipping your diet once a week or fortnight or having a “cheat meal” will help you break your routine and give you a prize from time to time. 

Today we will discover how many double unders you need to burn off your cheat meal

If you’re an athlete, you can get away with it, because you will soon get rid of the excess. Skipping is a great calorie-burning exercise.

It is a very good, cheap cardiovascular activity that you can practice anywhere. It’s ideal for when you’re on holiday or away from home. It also helps strengthen the upper and lower body, while burning a lot of calories in a short time.

We will use our favourite method: double unders.
