A jump rope can be one of the most cost-effective ways to add high-intensity cardiovascular fitness to your workout routine. If you want an inexpensive and efficient workout, the jump rope might be the ultimate "must have" piece of fitness equipment. When done properly, jumping rope can improve cardiovascular fitness, improve balance and agility, increase muscular strength and endurance, and burn calories.
Obviously that amount of calories burned will vary and is based on weight, height, age and gender. But for those Jump-Rope lovers that are concerned with calories, you can burn 11 to 20 calories per minute!! That's awesome!
Make sure your knee, back and neck are ok first! Avoid jumping rope on hard ground if you experience any discomfort. If that is the case, consider doing it on a mat.
