I’d love to be able to say that I jump rope regularly, but the truth is that I just don’t have the stamina for it and it does horrible things to my knees. But, it really is effective:
You will burn 1 074 calories per hour!
This exercise is the ULTIMATE fat burner that will help boost your caloric output and lose weight. There is simply no other exercise that can match this one.
According to Science Daily, jumping rope is much more effective than running:
“This aerobic exercise can achieve a “burn rate” of up to 1300 calories per hour of vigorous activity, with about 0.1 calories consumed per jump.
Ten minutes of jumping rope can roughly be considered the equivalent of running an eight-minute mile. Since the impact of each jump or step is absorbed by both legs, jump rope may have lower risks for knee damage than running.”
Did you know that during this exercise, you build agility and quickness, increase bone density and even boost cognitive function of your brain?
