Jump rope is a form of cardio exercise that all international athletes, from boxing players to soccer players, love and practice with. In addition to being a full-body exercise, which helps burn large amounts of calories in a short time, what are the effects of daily rope skipping?
In order to start a jump rope exercise, you will need a suitable jump rope. Usually gyms will have plastic dance ropes. These jumper strings are light and easy for quick jumps. You can also opt for a heavier string, as long as you see fit.
Once you have the right string, you will need a safe surface to be able to do the exercise. You can dance on the yoga mat. When jumping rope, you should wear sports shoes to avoid negative impact on your feet.
Performing a skipping exercise requires the parts of your body to work together to keep your body in balance. Doing this exercise regularly will help your body coordinate perfectly as well as have balance in daily activities.
Research shows that young soccer players who regularly jump rope during training sessions have better coordination and balance on the pitch. Jumping rope helps your body coordinate better because the whole body will have to pay attention to your feet.
Your brain will notice the work of your feet and control the other organs to coordinate perfectly so that you do not get caught in the rope. It might be difficult at first and you will trip over the rope many times.
Rope skipping is a necessary complementary exercise when we play other sports. Jumping rope not only improves the coordination of the legs with the body, but also enhances the strength of the muscles.
For the average person, a minute of skipping can burn up to 10 calories. If you have to compare skipping 30 minutes and jogging lightly at the same time, jumping rope definitely burns more energy.
