Jumping rope benefits the cardiovascular system by making your heart work harder while also improving coordination and mental focus. You can burn more calories during one hour of jumping rope than running at a six-minute mile pace.
It is a low-impact form of exercise that benefits your bones and joints. Jumping rope can also help improve balance, coordination, and posture.
Jump ropes are inexpensive, easy to use, and small enough to fit in any gym bag or suitcase.
