I've heard that before and have wanted to incorporate jumping rope into my workout routine, but living in an apartment with a tenant below me hinders that. Wouldn't want to be bouncing on his ceiling. And I only workout in my apartment. But it's something we used to do all the time as kids. We played all kind of jump rope games.

Jumping rope also does something other than burn calories that's supposed to br really good for the body, but I can't remember what that is at the moment.

Last Sunday, when I was cleaning up my old toy box, I get to find my jumping rope again and have decided to give it a try.

using a jump rope can give you an amazing workout. You can and should incorporate interval training when jumping rope or skipping, this will help you maximize your calorie burn. Everyone can jump rope, just pick one up and start doing it, you'll see amazing results
I jump rope every day! 5 x 5 minute rounds with 30 seconds of rest in between rounds. Really gets your cardio ready for any sort of combat sport. Even if you aren't training for any kind of combat sport, jump rope is one of the best ways to get in shape. Its much easier on the knees than running and utilizes more of the body!
My german shepherd labrador cross is 5 months old and is driving me mad jumping on people and leaving muddy pawprints on them. Especially my next door neighbour who gets a lift to school with me each day and...
