How we do it?
By combining a variety of skipping techniques, dynamic stretches, sit-ups, press-ups, squats and many other conditioning exercises, SocaSkip® provides a multitude of health and fitness benefits. What make this programme so unique, are the benefits derived from jumping, skipping and body-conditioning work-outs.
Each component individually, provides tremendous results to the individual, but combined (jumping, skipping, and body-conditioning exercises) it is powerful beyond measure. It is guaranteed to increase stamina, flexibility, helps improve cardio-respiratory (heart and lungs) function, increasing energy to the body, and improves coordination, balance and rhythm. There are two systems in the body the circulatory system (the blood function) and the lymphatic system (the cells) and miraculously through the coordination of skipping and jumping, the lymphatic system increases the cells performance in the body, by absorbing nutrients and removing waste from the body. It helps to disseminate calcium to the body, decreasing the risk of osteoporosis.
How it works?
Skipping burns twice as much calories in a 10-minute session than any other fitness programme and is 40% upper body and 60% lower body workout. As a total body programme it helps tone the body, the thighs, hips, Gastrocnemius (calves) and the gluteus maximus (bottom). By engaging your arms and wrist throughout the workout, the biceps, triceps, deltoids, chest and abdominus muscles achieve great results. The jumping techniques in skipping also helps increase the body’s energy system to work more efficiently.
The body conditioning exercises in this programme is designed to work specific muscles for e.g. the strengthening of the back muscles to support the body, the toning and strengthening of the abdominus, the Pectoralis major and minor muscles, the deltoids, the quadriceps, and muscles that usually do not benefit from everyday exercises and way of life.
