I've been looking for an answer to this as well. About the best information I can come up with is this:

Jumping Rope (70 jumps per minutes) .074 calories per minute per pound

Jumping Rope (125 jumps per minute) .080 calories per minute per pound

Jumping Rope (145 jumps per minute) .089 calories per minute per pound


When I'm working my hardest, I hit about 60 single jumps a minute, on average, with any consistency. That seems really fast to me. But I've seen the speedrope videos, and it's nowhere near that fast.

Hopefully this helps you at least guesstimate more accurately how many calories you might be burning.

I just had a quick question - I average about 75 double jumps a minute, but I have no idea if that is fast or slow when I'm putting it in the fitness tracker. It certainly feels fast to me, but then, I'm pretty out of shape.

Help?

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
