I bought a jump rope back when I first started, was too embarrassed by the house shaking to do it much back then

I do use it now though if I can't get out running or get to the gym, and boy, you are right, great cardio!

The last time I got out the jump rope, it attracted like 10 kids, so I spent my entire workout time turning the jump rope for everyone else. It's a great workout provided you've got some privacy. The hula hoop is good too.

Clean and press
Bench
Barbell rows
Seated Cable Rows
Squats
Weighted incline abs Took less than an hour
