    i've been doing this lately. sweats more than running. but i'm curious if it burns more or less calories than running.

    HA!! I wish!! On our warm-up, we do 4-2 minute rounds with 30 seconds rest between each round. I'm still too big to jump rope!!

    i was doing 100 revolution sets as part of my cardio. it'd take me about a minute to do that, then i'd go right into some barbell complexs, rest a minute, repeat.

    It is a staple in my cutting routine.

    Burns tons of cals and kicks the shit out of your calves.
    I start doing 30sec straight and then 30sec off.
    Then a few later go to 1min on 1min off
    Then 1min on and 30sec off.

    Burns more calories? It depends on the intensity. You can either just leisurely jump rope or really go at it.

    The place where I do mt has us going for 15 min straight.

    Jumping rope burns more calories than running if done at a decent intensity, just like you cant wont burn as many calories just doing a half assed jog.

    I could only ever do simple shit... tried to do figure 8 once with my old leather jump rope from boxing and somehow managed to whack myself in the back of the head.... needless to say I didn't try again (read: im a pussy)

    I got it down when i used to box and as you get better it actually gets more enjoyable.

    Id rather bust rope combos and get my feet way faster and my calves nice then run in a straight boring ass line on the treadmill. I usually go in time intervals or ill count 200-300 jumps a set. Ill do as many sets as i can until my calves feel like they are going to fucking explode.

    you'll get better with time and practice, but your toes will hate you as you learn- getting whipped sucks
    we used to do 3 5min rounds with 30 seconds rest in between
    i just started jumping rope again, i'm a little rusty, but it's one of the more enjoyable cardio routes, imo
