Skipping Ropes provide many Benefits

Adding a skipping rope session into your exercise routine will provide you with many benefits. It is a very cost effective option for a really effective workout and we will explain the major benefits to you here.

Your Coordination will improve

When you are skipping you will concentrate on your feet and this will improve your coordination. It doesn’t matter if you are consciously focusing on your feet or not, your subconscious mind will concentrate on your feet without you even being aware of it.

When you practice training with a skipping rope you will become a lot lighter on your feet. Training with skipping ropes is also good preparation for other training as well. Skipping ropes are used a lot in the boxing world because they know that a boxer will improve their focus and their coordination.

Reduces Ankle and Foot Injuries

If you participate in other sports then skipping rope sessions will help you. People that participate in other sports like football, tennis and squash (to name but a few) often suffer with ankle and foot injuries from running at pace, stopping sharply and turning quickly.

When you participate in skipping rope exercises you will improve foot coordination and it will also increase the strength of the muscles around your feet and ankle joints. This will reduce the chances of you suffering injuries in these areas.

With regular skipping you will learn how to use the balls of your feet instead of being on your heels or flat footed. You will be on your toes all of the time when you are participating in skipping rope exercises. This will help you a lot when you are playing other sports.

You will Lose Weight

You may be surprised to know that skipping rope exercises burn more calories than running or jogging. Science supports this. When you are skipping it’s possible to burn as much as 1300 calories every sixty minutes if the exercise is vigorous.

Every jump that you make skipping can burn 0.1 calories so if you spend around ten minutes of vigorous skipping then you can burn the same amount of calories as running a mile in eight minutes.

Skip anywhere and have Fun

It is very easy to take a skipping rope with you anywhere you go. You can take it with you to work and spend a few minutes lunch time skipping. If you are at school or college then you can do the same thing.

Participating in skipping rope exercise is a great way to warm up before a football match or a game of tennis for example. You can use your skipping rope for a warm down as well after playing a sport or after a bike ride.

Once you get confident with your skipping rope you can learn to do tricks and even get your kids involved. What about having a competition with your family? How long can you jump? How high can you jump? What about spinning?

Bone Density Improvement

A famous doctor from the University of Colorado, Dr Daniel Barry, has conducted a lot of research on bones of athletes and elderly people. He has concluded that the best way to improve your bone density is by jumping up and down.

The doctor said that jumping is the best if your bones are strong enough to start with. There have been other studies in Japan where mice were jumping up and down 40 times a week and their bone density improved significantly at the 24 week point. Skipping can improve your bone density if you are consistent with it.

Cardiovascular Benefits

Skipping is one of the best things that you can do for good aerobic conditioning according to the American College of Sports Medicine. If you participate in skipping rope exercise 3 to 5 times every week for 10 to 20 minutes each time you will improve your lung and heart health.

Your Breathing more efficient

When you are involved in an intense skipping workout you will improve the efficiency of your breathing. This will help you when it comes to participating in other activities such as swimming and sports.

Good for your Brain

Can you believe that using a skipping rope will make you smarter? Well you had better believe it because when you are skipping your left and right brain hemispheres will develop. This will help you to improve your memory, your special awareness, your reading skills and you will be more alert mentally.

With skipping you jump on the balls of your feet and this means that your mind and body make a number of neural adjustments to counter the imbalances of the jumping. So skipping improves coordination and balance, your reflexes, muscular endurance and bone density.

Skipping makes you Calmer

Skipping involves your mind and body to work at the same time and this can help you to be calmer. This calmness is a result of you being in synch with your mind, body and the rope itself. It can help you to be calmer in other life situations.
