    Using a jump rope in your workouts can increase the amount of calories you burn in your workouts.

      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.  That's been many years ago.

      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.

      Jumping rope is a great way to exercise and so portable and cheap.

      It's been a few months since I did. I'd do it one minute straight with a 30 second rest. Did it 10 times.

      Great addition to the workout

      it is decent cardio but when it comes to getting your heart rate high, blood pumping and fat burning Interval training is not beat. Go online and type interval training. i lost18 pounds in 1 1/2 month.

    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. lol I've proudly done a 100 though it felt like my heart was already in my neck and was about to choke it out..
    It's was fun! I'll be doing it again..lol..I wish I could do a 150 next time without damaging my lungs..

    I love jump roping because it really gets the heart rate going making it the perfect warm-up exercise. I have to say jump roping is probably one of the most under-rated exercises out there. I think it's the best cardiovascular exercise when running isn't an option

    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 did that just a few weeks ago. Been trying to pick a good workout system I can do inside my apt. Mine's only one floor so no worries there. big_smile

    After being unable to workout for about 11 months i'm back into the "fitness war". I love to workout and now more than ever i have a great motivation.  Jumping rope has become my warm up.

    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!
