Weighted Jump Ropes Workout!

Crossropes Weighted Jump Rope Workout

For you Diet.com'ers who are into Jump ropes - You will love this workout!  To do an example jump rope workout in this video using crossropes weighted jumpropes, I use a Tabata timer app that times my work and rest intervals. I track my heart rate with the Scosche Rhythm+ and you can clearly see this is a great cardiovascular workout!  It is fun to mix up the different weights of the crossropes from light and fast to heavy and slow.  Each weighted rope works your body differently!

Jump roping is a killer workout that can be integrated into your workout for cardio, warm-up, or a great finisher to make sure you are completely done with your workout.  I used to do lots of jump rope when training for gymnastics, and I used it primarily for plyometric training - to strengthen my body for bounding elements on the floor.  Boxers use it for foot speed training and endurance, and even older women can do it for a weight bearing activity to prevent osteoporosis.



One completely unexpected result from the weighted cross ropes has been that my wrists and forearms have been getting really sore.  In a good way!  Also, the first few times I did it my calves got really sore, which surprised me because I do a ton of bike riding, but this is just different.  Could be the effect of the cushiness of the FitnessMats which kind of deadens your bounce and adds some difficulty there as well.

So add this one to your list!  Give it a shot, and keep at it!

Celebrity Drive & Perfectionism Leads to Disorders

Who is the latest celebrity to admit to having an eating disorder? You'll never guess who else she outs!

Sorry I have been MIA for awhile. Things have been super busy for us at Diet.com. Finally it's Friday and I could use a serious long weekend! I am anti-columbus day, but hey, I'll take the day off from work. Any way, here is what you all have missed in celebrities and diet while I've been away.


-Brittney Snow is speaking out about her stint with anorexia in this weeks People magazine. Dropping down to as low at 87 pounds by age 14, Snow is now reaching out to other women with eating disorders. She appears in an educational video for the Jed Foundation, which brings awareness about mental health disorders and suicide in college students. Snow says it makes her upset that people think she is appearing in the video for publicity, which is often what it looks like when celebrities come out admitting a problem like an eating disorder. Here is the paragraph that was most eye opening for me:

The therapist diagnosed me with anorexia, exercise bulimia- instead of throwing up you go to the gym for hours-depression and body dysmorphia. All that, and yet I still had a career! It's shocking how many people in the business have great careers and this too, and don't talk about it. It's that drive and perfectionism.
-People Magazine
I find it interesting that she basically calls out other celebrities who have eating disorders saying, you can have problems, and people notice but still deny and live a successful career. Angelina, anyone?

-Mariah Carey is reporting that she has lost 25 pounds in this weeks Issue of OK! Magazine which I am protesting so I do not know the details. If you have read the article post her "diet and exercise" here. I highly doubt it is acurate, but entertaining none the less. PS I am boycotting OK! because I do not believe that Bridget Moynahan's baby is growing up without a Daddy. As a Tom Brady fanatic, let's be serious here. He is going to love that child, he is just in the middle of his best career start ever. If Bridget lived in Boston, Tom would be with his son everyweek. So while you aren't working Bridget, why don't you move back to your home state where your entire family lives! Stop being selfish and media hungry.


-And finally, please don't click here if you are the sensitive type. Two bloggers acknowleged the fact that eating disorders drive traffic to their website so they decided to try taking Alli even though they did not need it. The two self proclaimed alcohol loving ladies document their experience which may or not make you laugh. I kind of just think they are wasting money and time but whatever. What do you guys think?

Is Britney Pregnant or Just a Mess?

In Touch Weekly is reporting that Britney Spears is Pregnant! The called the man who is reportedly the father, and he confirmed the story to the tabloid! This is outrageous.

When asked about the pregnancy, J.R. confirmed exclusively to In Touch that Britney is carrying his child. "It's true," he says. On November 16, she proudly e-mailed a copy of the ultrasound to her inner circle.

I know she looks dumpy and a mess, but pregnant? How is this woman not on birth control?
