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.
