The Reasons that you must use a Jump Rope
When you think about jump rope you may have visions of little girls playing in the playground or boxers in the gym. But the truth is that anyone can benefit from using a jump rope as part of their exercise routine.
Improve your Coordination
When you embark on a jump rope routine you will spend a lot of time concentrating on your feet which will improve your coordination overall. You may not be consciously focusing on your feet but your brain will know what is happening down there. The more regularly you use a jump rope the more agile and light on your feet you will be.
Reduce the amount of Ankle and Foot Injuries
If you participate in other sports such as tennis and football then there you are likely to suffer injuries to your ankles or feet. The injuries usually result from running and then suddenly stopping and turning.
With regular jump rope you will increase the strength of the muscle groups around your ankles and feet. This will reduce the likelihood of you injuring your ankles or feet in other sports. People that skip use the balls of their feet and their toes a lot rather than being flat footed.
Weight Loss through Calorie Burning
If you participate in jump rope exercises for half an hour you will burn more calories than if you were to go jogging for the same amount of time. With jump rope it is theoretically possible to burn as much as 1300 calories in an hour.
This means that each jump burns around 0.1 calories. You would have to run the equivalent of an 8 minute mile to burn the same amount of calories with jump rope. Which would you rather do?
