Default Jumping Rope

I'm curious on what jumping ropes really do to you.
Which is better, jumping ropes or running/jogging? or both?
Someone please explain this to me. I want to burn body fat. Especially my belly fat. Thanks!

Depends which your best at. If you want to get rid of fat around your midsection do ab work after running.

According to a study that was recently done, jumping rope burns more fat than running, jogging, swimming or just about any simple exercise you can do.

Plus, it also helps with your footwork if you do it properly and like a boxer should. Everything in the boxing gym is tied together for footwork, defense and offense.

I must admit I'm a keen runner and a keen skipper.

But there is no two ways about it, running is a better cardio exercise for building fitness.

In response to what Mr 1502 says about it burning fat better than anything else, it really comes down to pace of the exercise, not just the exercise itself. If you run 30 minutes hard you'll burn more fat than 30 minutes of skipping at a moderate pace.

If I speedskip for half an hour with allsorts of double jumps, crossovers, knee lifts and step variations it wont leave me anywhere as tired as trying to run 4.5-5 miles in the same time. I guess that is because the legs get lifted higher in running at a good 6-7 minute mile pace......and you have to keep to that pace by stopwatch!

Remember too that running different routes keeps training fresh, with skipping you are largely confined to where you skip in one place. Half an hour plus or repeated rounds with nothing to stare at (unless there are gorgeous girls about!) can be a bit tedious day in day out.

Also its easy to cheat a little with skipping, you can slow down at any point or avoid doing doubles etc if you are a bit tired. With a timed run, you need to push to meet your pace or beat your last time. Skipping offers very little measurable improvement.

That said, skipping is a great exercise, excellent for coordination and especially for boxing footwork (better than running as you are more closely mirroring movements in the ring).

leather doesnt kink that much and easier to use. but it all depends on your comfortability. when you are good and fast enough to jump rope, you can use the weighted one.
