  • I use jumping rope as a part of interval training. Just 10-15 mins is very beneficial: Jump all out for 1-2 minutes, then march or step side to side for 1-2 minutes...my heart rate monitor lets me know how many calories I burn and its usually a lot! Pretty close to going for a 30 min. run. If you're pressed for time...consider jumping rope! Oh, and its fun too! :o) - 4/15/2008 2:55:41 AM
  • I remember jumping rope in my early years, as a child, and as an adult with my teenage nieces. Those were my thinest times. There is something to be said about jumping rope. Maybe I need to go back to it. With summer nearing this will be a great time to start. - 4/5/2008 10:19:39 PM

  • 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. - 4/5/2008 3:52:47 AM
  • 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. - 4/5/2008 12:08:58 AM

    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. - 11/12/2007 9:15:36 PM
