Jump rope is one of the best exercises if you are looking for weight loss & building your stamina. It’s easy to learn and burn lot of calories once you master the skill. We all must have tried jumping rope at least once in our childhood. It was a fun game and required coordination and endurance.
It is an efficient full-body workout. The better you get at skipping rope – the more calories you burn in less time. It is very portable and you can carry it in your bag whenever you leave the house and grab a workout anytime no matter where you are in the world. Jumping rope activates every part of your body from head to toe. From your shoulders down to your calves you will experience the burn.

How to measure and decide the length of the rope?
Make sure you are picking up a rope that is sized correctly for you. If you stand on the rope with one foot and bring both handles up towards your body, the bottom of the handle should be just below your armpit. Another good rule of thumb is that the rope should be 3 feet taller than however tall you are.
Picking a rope for your goal – Pick a rope optimized for your goals. If you want to work on your agility make sure you pick up an agility rope (lightweight rope.)
The agility rope will definitely burn a ton of calories as well, so if you are looking for agility plus fat loss that’s a safe option as well.
