Jumping rope isn’t just for kids on the blacktop or boxers at the ring! It offers some serious benefits from a major calorie burn to a challenging cross-training session. It’s a great way to add variety to your cardio routine and even though there is stress on the joints, if it is done properly, it can be lower impact than running. The calorie burn from 10 minutes skipping rope is equivalent to running an 8-minute-mile!

 

Get your cardio on with this fun 30-day jump rope challenge. Your heart will thank you.

 

And if this isn’t enough of a challenge for those previous playground pros, multiply each day by 2.
