Hi there,
I am new to myfitnesspal.com and I want to share a simple but effective exercise with youu guys....

Jump rope has been consider a child's play from the beginning. But not any more, Jump rope has become a competitive sport and has huge importance all around the world as fat loss/fitness workout and a sport.
Here are some benifits of jump rope:
1, Increase your stamina and makes your reflexes fast.
2, Burns fat faster than any other workout on this planet(thats why boxers and athletes use this workout to train themselves for competetion).
3, 10 mins of jump rope at moderate speed is equivalent to 10 mins jogging/runing
60 mins of jump rope burns around 1200 calories. Making the most effective workout possible.

For beginners it would be really hard to jump rope and the will always trip over. Never ever give up, I am also a beginner and i started it just a few days a go but I feel fast and I dont get tired too early. Just dont be frustrated and keep on trying.
For jump rope training please search for Buddy lee's jump rope instructional video.

Thankyou.

I've recently been adding jump rope to my circuit workouts. I'm still not very good at it, but it really does get my heart pumping!

i recently added jumping rope to my workout as well... so far i've done it 3-4 times, and i get better every time. i'm going on vacation next week and it's going to be so easy to throw my jumprope in a suitcase and take it with me for a quick workout.

If you have ever tried jumping rope as an adult you know why it is such a calorie burning workout, it's tough! I was in pretty good shape the last time I tried and almost killed myself going for two minutes lol. If you haven't tried jumping rope since you were a kid be prepared to be surprised! It's no longer the care free past time you did as a kidtongue
March 20, 2010 9:58 PM
yes dont give up im also not good at it. If you are feeling bored while jump roping listing to songs that will keep u motivated......

If it's "equivalent" to jogging/running, how can it also be "best"?

I don't know if it's BETTER than any other exercise... but it's certainly one of the top cardio exercises in my book.

In the summer, I'll alternate hula hooping with jumping rope - particularly when I'm enjoying nice weather and cooking on my grill out on the back deck. If I cook for half an hour or 45 minutes I easily burn 2-300 calories.

The neighbors probably think I'm nuts!

I just pile on two sports bras. (As if ONE wasn't unflattering enough.) It does seem to keep things in place.

I'm top heavy as well - I found a sport bra that works wonders. It really holds you and is very comfortable. Check out - https://www.myessentialbodywear.com/forms/frm_items.aspx

I love jumping rope but last time I did it regularly, my calves got pretty big... not something I want, so I haven't been doing it. It did help with endurance, though. It helped me run harder & longer. :)

That's weird because I certainly wouldn't burn 1200 calories in an hour of jogging...

Ok, so I was thinking about this jump roping thing this am while running and I came home and did a little calorie burning research. First off, both get heart rate going so that is great. Jumping rope does not train the body as overall as running or even walking does unless you are training like a boxer or professional athelete and using many movements to do the jumping (ie, one leg to the other double jumping etc).

Please visit healthstatus.com and look at the calories burned estimator. You can put in your weight and the exercise done and it will give you a great estimate for calories burned. I did this today and here are the results

One hour each activity:
Jumping rope 1108 calories
Running 5mph 933
running 6mph 1108
running 7mph 1268
running 8mph 1487
running 10mph 1982
running 12 mph 2464

Obviously, it depends on how fast you are running but if you have trained and you are running at more than 6 mph then keep running, and if you can't run for 6 mph then you are probably not jumping rope at a speed that would burn 1200 calories in an hour because you most likely don't have the stamina to do it at the level a professional athelete would. But if you want JUMP until your heart is content if that keeps you moving.

i like it too... being that i had never jumped rope in my life, it took me a couple of sessions to get it... i still can't do it perfect every time, but the other day i made it to 50 jumps in a row a few times... started to hurt my legs a little bit though.

i do the "girly jump" off of two feet. i was trying to do the "skipping/running" but i just couldnt get it. and i tried picking up the speed but that was too hard as well... i guess i should perfect what i'm doing now before making it harder.

Spency, Really strange that you posted this because I was just thinking about jump roping!!! when I started back 4 months ago I picked up a jump rrope and i literally could not even jump let alone get over the rope!!lol Anyway, since then, I've tried a few times but hadn't done it in a while until last week. I picked it up thinking mabye this time I'll get over the rope and i did!! I use to love doing this as a kid, and your right, its a lot more fun!1 I'm gonna try it to music tomorrow and see just how well I can do. I actually use to be really good at double jumping. all my neices and nephews do it a lot in the summer, wouldn't they just crap if I got in on it with them!! Thanks for the info on it!!!!!

just dont give up jump rope is fun but its not that easy it takes a lot of time to build rythm and speed plus if you are trying to do advanced techniques like back crosses, triple unders, Quadriples and quinntriples etc
this is wat i did when i got frustrated of trying
i just said to myself 1nce more then again 1nce more if i failed
now i did it although im not good at it as you did like 50 jumps in a row but i know that ill become a good jump roper

yeah and it also helps in building your core, forearms, calves and little bit of deltoids...
