While there are fitness benefits to keeping your heart rate elevated for longer, you will burn the same calories either way.

Of course, with an intense activity like jumping rope, it is probably not possible to sustain it for 30 minutes, and you may well get more fitness benefits from the very high heart rate for 10 minutes, than you would for something that is slower and longer.

Exercise whether all at once of broken down into smaller segments will yield the same benefits according to the American College of Sports Medicine. In fact, according to a recent report, taking small breaks during cardio may actually be of benefit to your weight loss and cardio-respiratory fitness.

I hope this helps!

Hi everyone,
i have this question in my head, im sure that for example 30 minutes of jumping rope is way better than doing 10 minutes and take a short break then another 10 minutes and a break and then the last 10 minutes. but how can you actually measure the difference? i mean when tracking for example how can you track sth like this? same goes for 1 hour cardio vs 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening..plz help!
