Jumping Rope Exercise Fitness Workout

Jumping Rope Workout

Burns Lots of Calories!

For a busy person who wants to lose weight on a budget, jumping rope (skipping) is a great calorie-burning exercise.It doesn’t take a lot of time, it’s cheap and it’s high intensity so burns body fat fast. If you travel a lot, a jumping rope packs easily so you can still have a work out in your hotel room at night.

How Does Jumping Rope Help Weight Loss?

Some people who reach a weight loss plateau and find their regular workouts are not helping to burn enough calories, find jumping rope very useful. The workout is short, but high in intensity so calories are burned fast. Jumping is on a par with running when it comes to calorie burn. It improves aerobic endurance, coordination, balance and timing. As a type of weight-bearing aerobic exercise, it also strengthens bones and muscles which helps prevent osteoporosis.

How Many Calories Does Jumping Rope Burn?

10 minutes burns about 110 to 130 calories. [This is based on a 150-pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn extra calories; if you weigh less, you’ll burn fewer calories.]

How Often Should I Jump For Optimum Weight Loss?

10 minutes of easy, 2-footed jumping. Take a quick rest every one minute. Do this 3 or 4 times a week.

20 to 40 minutes of 2-footed jumping, or alternating between 1-footed and 2-footed jumping, 3 or 4 times a week.

Alternate 4 minutes of rope skipping with 3 minutes of other exercises for a total of 40 to 60 minutes.

How To Start Jumping Rope

Begin jumping with both feet, just high enough to clear the rope and bring the rope over fast so you don’t have time for an extra hop. Keep the elbows tucked into the side, the arms should barely move while skipping. If you’re tired after a minute or two of jumping, take a break and then continue again.
