Jumping rope is great exercise. Nearly all ofnus know how to do it. My only concern is the high-impact it has. I do my cardio on a Gazelle which low to no impact so they should workout nicely together.
Great article. Remember how we jumped rope in grade school? I was never any good at going "in the back door" or being able to jump "Double-Dutch" but I did jump a lot. I love BOXERS because they can jump rope for hours.

Such a great way to workout! I started today, added jumping rope to my usual walk and jog routine. I'm counting jumps for now, instead of minutes. Started with 150 jumps.
