According to studies published in Residents Quarterly, just ten minutes of jumping rope is MORE effective then jogging for 30 minutes!
But even BETTER, using a jump rope has also been found to reduce tension and raise energy levels. Participants in experiments at Illinois University's Physical Fitness Research Center were studied while skipping rope 5 days a week for a ten-week period.
The results were greater leg and knee strength, better jumping ability, and faster running speed. The participants were also found to be more agile, more flexible, and their hearts were found to have become stronger.
However, the BEST part is this - because of all the muscles involved in using a jump rope, you can burn a whopping 285 calories in only 15 minutes... all without unnecessary impact to your joints.
