Katy Perry Jumps Onstage and Off

Katy Perry looks amazing in her various bikinis. What's her secret? According to a recent interview with Cosmo, her favorite way to exercise is jumping rope. Not only does it burn calories — 295 per 30 minutes — but jumping rope also helps build bone-mineral density and makes your body stronger.

It's a simple and inexpensive way to get your heart rate up; use it as your main form of cardio or to warm up before strength training. Katy even jumps rope as a warmup before shows. Since this little gadget is so portable, you can pack it in your gym bag, suitcase, car, and even your purse and always have a way to get in a good workout.

I've tried jumping rope many times and it always hurts my arches! So much so that I have to stop and recover and then walking hurts for a while. :( Tips?

I jump rope a lot, actually. It reminds me of being a kid again and I'm pretty good at it, so it doesn't feel like a real "workout". I take a jumprope with me when I travel so I can squeeze in my workouts wherever I am.
