  • TAG : 2). Jumping rope compared to other forms of exercise
  • Your improved ability to jump rope and be synchronous with your body, mind and the rope, can actually help you be more calm in other situations.

    Because you are actually working your brain and your body at the same time, boxers in the ring who jump rope actually are more calm overall than those who don’t. The Jump Rope Institute attributes this to the biomechanical perspective. “As one dissects this exercise further and views it from a biomechanical perspective, it represents a composite movement combining a circular motion with an angular momentum. The body resembles a projectile subject to all the laws that govern projectile motion while the rope becomes a dynamic flywheel subject to all the laws that govern rotary motion. It is in the synchronous and harmonious coordination of these movements where the secrets and benefits are received.”

  • Start jumping with 3 sets of 10 to 15 jumps per set and work your way up. As soon as you get bored with counting how much jumps you’ve made, time the sets. Start with 3 sets: 30 seconds the first set, 45 seconds the second set, and 1 minute the third set. When you overcome the jumping time, increase it by 15 more seconds per set.
    There are few types of fitness jumping ropes you can choose from.

    Can't muster the motivation to make it to the gym? Skip it! Jumping rope burns more than 10 calories a minute while strengthening your legs, butt, shoulders, and arms. And it doesn’t take long to reap major rewards. You can burn more than 200 calories in two, 10-minute sessions each day (that's 1,000 calories a week)!
