We're always curious to know how celebrities stay in such great shape. Turns out, many stars are using the oldest trick in the recess handbook. Yes, it's time to rediscover a playground favorite: the jump rope.

Justin Bieber, Kevin Hart, Padma Lakshmi and Ludacris are all fans of the fun childhood exercise. Kate Hudson hops are so advanced she even jokes that Floyd Mayweather should look out because she is in the "jump rope zone."

And we know you've seen Bieber's fancy dance moves, but have you seen him with a rope? The singer does a variety of tricks in his workout including the criss-cross, speed step, one-foot jump and a few double-unders. (Yes, we had to look up those names.) Basically, the Biebs has some serious skipping skills!

Although, Bieber isn't the only one who's got bouncy moves. Kevin Hart can also pull of some impressive tricks. Plus, we can't help but notice the comedian's chiseled chest. We see you, Kev!
