  • I tried this few times, but it's quite tiring to do jump rope for straight 30s. So, I just do 15s-rest for 1 minute. By the way, what do you do during rest? I just walk around, get my breath back :) - 5/30/2010 8:14:29 PM
    that is a really great idea, i'm definitly giving it a try this afternoon! - 4/1/2010 6:47:45 AM
    I'm excited...constantly looking for ways to vary my workout so this sounds good...I know with my workout playlists I can jump rope for hours...can't wait to go buy it - 3/10/2010 2:13:30 PM
  • I just love jump rope, but I keep skipping the workout. Now, starting back, less stamina so I think I'll try this technique next week, built my confidence as well, haha - 3/7/2010 6:31:08 AM

  • I love jumping rope as a kid, but as a 65 yr. old with knees that are not the best, I think I will leaven all that jumpin up to others!!! - 10/13/2009 5:51:51 AM
  • I am so excited to add jumping rope to my cardio exercises!! I used to jump rope as a kid and loved it. I'm going out to buy a skipping rope after work today. :) - 2/23/2009 4:42:20 PM
  • I loove to jump rope once I start doing it - as with most people I fight my lazy self before I exercise, but once I start i'm golden. I created a playlist that keeps me moving while I jump rope -it's fast and heavy on the bass. I jump rope every other day. - 2/22/2009 7:38:07 PM
  • Jumping rope is truly great and as the below person said, it does help rid oneself of belly fat! - 2/22/2009 12:02:34 PM
    I started jumping rope to lose the last couple of pounds after i had my daughter, that was almost 3 years ago and i have kept it up with 20 minutes of rope jumping at 150 turns a minute everyday. its an excellent exercise and i gave up doing my ad exercises because my abs looked better after a few months of jumping rope then they did after 10 years of ab exercises, definately something to atleast try - 1/24/2009 10:15:19 AM
  • I'm intrigued by the great benefits this seems to suggest.

    When the article says that jumping rope for 10 minutes has the same benefit as jogging for 30 minutes -- what does that mean, really? According to the Fitness Tracker, the calories are not similar (10 minutes of fast rope jumping = 180 calories burned while 30 minutes of slow jogging (12-minute mile) = 384. It wouldn't keep your heart rate up for the typically recommended 30-60 minute period.

    I know, I know, I could do it for longer than 10 minutes. But I'd like to understand more about the claim of 10 minutes of jumping equalling 30 minutes of jogging. - 9/5/2008 12:16:08 PM
