On average, jumping rope burns about 11 calories per minute. If you crank up the intensity of your jumps, you can burn in the neighborhood of 20 calories per minute.
It’s easy to see why this exercise is easily one of the best cardio activities you can try.
You can jump rope anywhere – indoors, outdoors, on a side of a road – all you need is a jump rope. Jumping rope builds cardiovascular endurance and works almost every muscle in your body.
Whether you need to lose some weight or just want to maintain or even improve your fitness level, try this exercise routine: walk at your top speed for 5 minutes, then jump rope for 1 minute, keep switching between walking and jumping rope for a total of 30 minutes.
Aim for three walking/jumping sessions three times a week for two weeks.
