    I want to do HIIT and my prefered method of cardio is jumprope. Problem is I don't have a timer to time the "hard" and "moderate" cycles of the intervals, and counting seconds whle I jump rope confuses my rhythm and makes me trip more often. So can I do HIIT on the jump rope using number of jumps instead of time?

    Something like this:

    250jump warmup
    60 jump HARD
    120 jump moderate
    60 jump HARD
    120 jump moderate
    ...repeat for ~15mins...
    200jump cooldown

    Would that give me the benefits of HIIT or what? If not, how could I do a timerless jumprope HIIT?

    Counting seconds would be easier for me to count then trying ot count that many jumps.

    I was shown a similar thing not too long ago that takes about 3 minutes up and down


    10 slow
    10 fast
    10 slow
    20 fast

    up to 50 and down again.

    Admitedly you can't sprint for the whole duration, but it sure gets your arms used to the lactate involved in boxing (yes yes and skipping)
