Aerobics are a very vigorous workout routine. There are many different exercises that can
be considered aerobic exercises. I have found about nine different types. There is aerobic
dancing, bicycling, swimming, running, climbing stairs, walking, rollerblading, cross
country skiing and rope jumping.
Let’s look at rope jumping, workouts target your legs and stomach, arms and back, also
your chest and shoulders. You can do many different rope jumping routines. One way
might be to just jumping with two feet, or hopping on one foot rotating between both feet.

A stroll would be at a speed of 3 mile per hour with arms just hanging. A race walk
would include quick steps at about 5 mile per hour with arms bent at your elbows.
