Skipping is one of the best exercises for losing weight, keeping fit and staying in shape. It is a cario-vascular exercise that will increase your heart rate and burn fat. One of the key things about skipping is that it is better for your knees as the impact on them is shared between both knees, while running, for example, the impact falls on each leg individually and therefore impacts the knees more. The proof is in the pudding with skipping, just think how fit boxers are. A boxers' training regime includes skipping for, often, up to 45minutes!

Skipping Ropes 


  1. Interesting information.
    Nice blog.

  2. Hmm, I never thought about skipping as beneficial before, but you're right, it's a whole lot more comfortable than running.

  3. I don't think we even own a skipping rope anymore.
