  Benefits of Jumping Rope:

An excellent aerobic and anaerobic cross-training workout

  1. An efficient, high intensity, calorie burning activity to improve body composition, comparable to running at 12 to 15 Kcal per minute. 

  2. A total body workout, utilizing the muscles of the calves, gluteus and quads.  The constant turning of the rope also effectively uses the upper body muscles of the chest, back, shoulders, biceps, forearms and triceps. 
  3. Improves the following athletic training skills: Speed, Agility, Power, Endurance, Timing, Coordination, Balance, Rhythm, and Grace. 
  4. A fun and inexpensive workout that is easy to learn, but always remains a constant challenge.
