Whats up guys. I recently discovered a jump rope out in our garage. I started using it and found out that I really enjoy it. One thing that always made me stop conditioning as much as I wanted to was the fact that I hate running. I find it very boring. I also got my bike stolen and dont really care to get a new one.

What I was wondering was what you guys thought about jumping rope taking over running. Do you think it gives you all the benifits that running does? Should I still run every once in a while or does jumping rope do everything that I need to stay well conditioned?

I looked for a topic like this and could not find one so sorry if this has been asked.

Thanks

Jumping rope is great for cardiovascular fitness, just as good as running - indeed I believe it has been proved to be more effective than running. If you don't like to run then jumping rope is perfect.

I agree. I read that jumping rope for 10 minues is equal to about 20-30 minutes of running. Of course that was using a certain amount of times the ropes circles...

I tried jump rope the other day at TDK school...I couldnt get it down, I just couldnt get the rhythm. Its probably just me because my master always gets me to do these crazy things to improve rhythm and coordination.

I also jump rope to replace running. Mixing up your footwork, rythmn etc provides additional benefits like increased foot agility. After 10 minutes of jump roping I feel about the same as 20 minutes of sprinting and slowing down over and over again. Or running a mile or so.

Yes, I also mix it up a lot. I'll jump on both feet, then start hopping on my left foot, then switch to my right foot, and go back to both feet.

Not only is it more fun for me, but it seems like its a lot more convenient. Instead of going to the track and running. All I do is go out to the garage, listen to a cd, and just jump for around 20 minutes or so.

Not to mention long distance running is brutal on the knees...Jumping rope is a great alternative to running...:)

Sure is, its a lot more convienent and I find it easier on my joints - I also feel more worked when I jump rope then I do when I run, jog or sprint.

If you feel like jumping rope is harder than interval training, you are probably doing the interval training wrong. You're also doing it wrong if you can do it for 20 minutes without puking and passing out.
