Fitness Skipping Ropes Designed To Burn Fat

The high energy exercise of skipping rope is not only good for you but skipping rope is also a great way to lose weight and reduce belly fat because of the intensity of the cardio workout jumping rope induces. Jump ropes have long been praised for their ability to tone muscle, strengthen overall coordination, and improve stamina as well as endurance. You might be surprised to learn that skipping rope is a full-body workout and can burn an average of 800 to 1,000 calories per hour jumping rope.

You will need to find the right jump rope length proportionate to your height, to do this, stand on a rope or tape measure and pull each end up to your armpits.

Using ropes for speed and stamina

Skipping ropes are a fundamental part of any MMA or boxing training routine, as they offer athletes a great way to increase overall fitness, quickness and agility. Using a jump rope challenges the cardiovascular system while also conditioning the body to move in rapid motions. Skipping helps MMA and boxing athletes finely tune coordination and footwork movements by challenging them to stay balanced, flexible and light on their feet. Additionally, the continuous small and controlled jumps help athletes in building ankle stability and power for improved performance. 

Speed Ropes vs Skipping Ropes

Skipping ropes and speed ropes are both essential tools for athletes wanting to improve their agility and coordination, but there are some important differences between the two pieces of equipment. Skipping ropes are usually made of plastic, which makes them lightweight and allows users to easily execute high-speed jumps. Speed rope, by comparison, is often made of steel or other more durable material, allowing athletes to quickly move up in complexity with their drills. This durability also ensures that these ropes can be used in a variety of locations, such as outdoors on harder surfaces. 

Incorporating other fitness equipment into your workout is a great way to make exercising more fun and effective. With skipping ropes, kettle bells, medicine balls, pull up bars and resistance bands, there are plenty of options for mixing up and challenging your body.
