I guess everybody has done or at least tried skipping (jump-rope) before. It is a very effective cardio exercise that boosts your heart rate up, so your cardiovascular system improves and can burn an impressive amount of calories in a relatively short period of time so it is very helpful if you want to lose weight.
Also asked, can you get a flat stomach from jumping rope?
Contrary to some myths that float around the gym, you can't get a flat stomach simply by exercising your core muscles. You can, however, work toward a flat stomach by burning calories through cardio exercises such as jumping rope.
How much do I have to skip to lose weight?
If you weigh about 160 pounds and your current calorie burn is about equal to the number of calories you eat every day, jumping rope three hours a week will help you drop just over a half-pound, or close to 2 1/2 pounds a month. If you weigh 200 pounds, you can lose more than 3 pounds a month.
Can you lose weight just by skipping rope?
Jumping rope is a good aerobic exercise that can really get your heart pumping, and it can also help you burn calories and lose some of those unwanted pounds. However, while exercise is an important part of any weight-loss program, you can't out-exercise a bad diet.
