  • 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
    Good Idea ..... Can't wait to add it into my workout tomorrow. I will be taking my jump rope with me to the gym tomorrow!
  • my trainer actually had me jumping rope during my worksession this morning. Haven't done it in years. Was alot of fun.
  • 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!!!
  • 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. :)
  • 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.
  • Jumping rope is truly great and as the below person said, it does help rid oneself of belly fat!
    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
  • 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.
    Great job you guys keep up the work !!!
  • During the school year, I jumped rope every other day. I didn't realize the great benefits of jumping rope.
  • We use to do this in school every day and it was FUN.
  • Possible my favorite cardio exercise especially if I'm short on time. I've really worked up my stamina by using the program described in the article.
  • It just dawned on me that I could jump rope at work without a video or leaving for the I looked it up! I can't wait to try this out!!! Great idea for shift workers/people who work a lot. I could even add it into my morning without having to wake up much earlier (0330 is bad enough!) GREAT!! I am so excited!!
  • I started a prgram this monday. I jump rope for 15 minutes. I do about 3 sessions of 5 minutes. Thats about 210 calories for 15 minutes. I do this 5 times a week. Thats 1050 calories a week. I am trying to keep this pace for a month. Thats a little more than a pound a month just with 15min of jumping rope. Thats if my eating is controlled of course. I love jumping rope, its fun, fast and your legs get fast results.
