Yes, jumping rope is a great cardio exercise. As a kid, I was part of a jump rope demonstration team and this exercise made me lose a lot of weight and gain athleticism at the same time. I still love to jump rope as an adult and plan to consistently incorporate this type of exercise in my daily workout regimen.

Yes, you CAN lose weight with jumping rope. In fact, you can do this anywhere and much shorter time as it's one of high intensity cardio. Even if you don't have the rope, the motion of jumping (arms, legs, abs tighten) also works and the rope doesn't cost too much. I'm already in my healthy weight range (but still have another 5kg to get my goal but I more to toning now) and jumping rope can reduce or at least help me to maintain my weight.

I find that this link is good for general info and have tips how to begin:

I was just wondering can people really lose weight by jump roping? Is it just as good as any other exercise?
