Why Skipping Rope Could Help You Lose Weight Faster Than Running. Skipping rope is a fun game when you’re a kid too, and you may even have mastered the elusive “double dutch” move. You may not skip very much these days, but it could be a great way to boost your exercise routine.

Studies conducted by researchers at Appalachian State University and East Carolina University compared participants running on a treadmill and skipping. They looked at how many calories were burned but also the stress each activity placed on the kneecap, or patella. They noted this as the “peak force” and it turns out that this peak force was 30 percent higher when running than skipping. Not to mention this same study found that skipping burned more calories in the same amount of time.
The reason jump rope is becoming a popular choice isn’t only due to the fact that you can possibly burn more calories in the same amount of time, but that you’ll also work out many muscle groups with low impact. LIVESTRONG says that when you work out with a jump rope your joints won’t get as stressed as they can while running. Your upper body will get a work out too! Including your wrists, elbows and shoulders. Not only that but your calves do the bulk and your ankles will receive a little attention, too. You can choose how fast or intense you skip, while also having the option of using a weighted rope to get even more out of your work out.
However The American Journal Of Epidemiology says that 30 minutes of activity, like jumping rope, can actually counteract the negative effects of sitting.
Not only can jumping rope combat our bad sitting habits, according to Harvard Medical School it can improve your heart health.
However, jumping rope, because of it’s high intensity, can be great for losing weight faster around your midsection. Jumping rope requires you to tighten your core and work out your ab muscles. Basically targeting your stomach and working those trunk muscles extra hard.
