Grab a jump rope and jump for a healthy heart
Jumping rope isn't just a children's game - it has great fitness benefits for adults who want to lose weight or active people who want a cardio workout. Jumping rope can burn around 40-70 kilojoules per minute, so by jumping rope for just 10 minutes a day, you can burn over 4,100 kilojoules a week!
Jumping rope is a great cardio workout, similar to biking and running - but has lower impact on your body since each jump is absorbed by both legs. And just 10 minutes can be considered the equivalent of running an 1,6 km in 8 minutes.
In addition to cardio benefits, jumping rope also builds agility, increases bone density, and you can do it anytime, anywhere!
If you're a beginner start with 5 - 15 minutes and for experienced jumpers try 20 - 40 minutes of interval training. (1 minute jumping and 1 minute rest).
