Why You Should Jump Rope #1. You can do it anywhere. Inside, outside, on a flat roof, in your hotel room, on the backyard deck — you can jump rope anywhere that has high enough ceilings. Even if you are on a trip, your jump rope and shoes can fit easily in your suitcase. You don’t need to sign up at a gym or join an exercise class to start jumping rope. If you’ve got a rope, you’ve got all that you need. #2. It works the whole body. There are few better exercises that work every part of your body. Your upper body will be getting a workout from swinging the rope (and an even better one if the rope is weighted), your heart gets the benefit of reaching your target rate, your stomach muscles will need to be engaged during the jumps and you’ll be able to tone your legs as well. It also helps develop speed, quickness, agility, balance, coordination, bone density, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning while toning and trimming the buttocks, tummy and waistline. #3. No specific training needed. Well, if you can jump in the air, you can certainly jump rope. The best part about this exercise is that you don’t need a fancy personal trainer to help to exercise. Just you and the rope will be enough for an entire exercise regimen. Of course, if you want to do a Dutch or Double Dutch, it will be as fun as you had when you were a kid. #4. Probably the least expensive workout ever. A mere $15 or so will get you a jump rope that lasts for years. Compared to other cardio equipment, it is certainly no match. Very inexpensive, relatively easy, and extremely effective, jump roping is one of the best pieces of fitness equipment to have on hand. It takes up no room in your bag, and very useful for a quick workout. #5. No more worrying about the weather. Say goodbye to all the times when a rain or a snowfall dampened your fitness plans. If you’re jumping rope, you can still do it inside, provided you have enough ceiling clearance and the proper flooring to avoid injury. You’ll never have to worry about the weather cutting into your workout again. Now you know all about the immensely useful, largely popular single-equipment exercise. Jumping rope is a lesson in coordination and timing, whatever your skill level may be. The key: short, quick contact with the floor, staying light on the balls of the feet. So what are you waiting for? (via Why you should Jump Rope? – Healthy Times Blog)
