Loop through non-contiguous range using Range.Cells

I'm trying to cycle through all the cells in a non-contiguous and I don't know why this isn't working...
Sub CycleRangeFori()
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To Range("rngA").Cells.Count
Next i
End Sub

Open in new window

Interestingly, this works...
Sub CycleRangeForEach()
Dim rng As Range
For Each rng In Range("rngA")
Next rng
End Sub

Open in new window

See attached workbook.  The named range is A1:F1,A5:F5.  Why can't I do it using the Range.cells approach?
