The Benefits of Jumping Rope
In just 15 to 20 minutes, it will give you an unparalleled total body workout.
A lot of muscles are being worked at the same time. This can create muscle tone and definition.
To make workouts more challenging and intense, you can use a weighted jump rope.
It enhances performance in any sport.
It’s also great for eye-hand coordination, lateral movement, foot and hand speed and agility.
It can be used at the beginning of workouts for a warm-up.
Passive rest breaks in between lifts can be substituted with rope-jumping sessions. This can keep your heart rate up and promote more weight loss.
Jump rope workouts can be effective in helping you lose weight and reduce your disease risk.
This exercise is unfortunately one my orthopedic surgeon said should not be done with a prosthetic knee. Perhaps I need a second opinion. Looks like there are tons of benefits.
