Jumping rope might seem like a thing we do in the playground when we’re at pig-tail pulling age – not something for a professional work out. But honesty, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Jump rope is a technique that you’ll want to add to your workout, right now. Here’s why.

It’s fast

What you can do in 10 minutes of jump rope has the same cardiovascular effect as 30 minutes of jogging.

It burns calories 

Whether you want to get into a lower weight class or just lose a few pounds, jump rope burns around 250 calories in 15 minutes. 

Improves coordination 

Improved coordination is useful in so many aspects of life, but especially in sports. Whether it’s martial arts, hockey or soccer, better coordination puts you ahead of the game. 

Strengthens bones

Strong bones means less chance of injury and a longer sports career – not to mention, a happier, healthier life. It’s particularly effective in the feet and ankles. Your bone density will improve the more you train.
