In the 4th grade gym classes, your coach might have asked you to come up with a skipping rope. And mostly all of the people used to love it. Bring the memory back and put your hands on the handles of your skipping rope now if you are worrying about your fitness particularly about your weight. In my personal experience, I have never seen anything working as fast as skipping ropes to burn my belly fats in the matter of days. Skipping the rope doesn’t only keep the whole body engaged into the activity but also burns fats and boost up the energy level of the body that leads to healthy muscles and healthy body.

Does skipping work same for all?

According to studies, people with different body weight have different tendency of losing weight due to skipping. If a person is extremely fat, s/he will require more energy to jump as high as to let the rope pass beneath his/her feet. And for more energy the body will burn more fats and the process will continue. Similarly, the amount of weight a person can lose due to skipping varies from person to person according to the body weight. But the more the energy a person spends for the activity the more calories he burns. For instance, according to American College of Sports Medicine at even the slow pace the person with 130 pounds weight can burn minimum 472 calories and a person with 205 pounds can burn 745 calories in 60 minutes and the list goes on. That’s exciting but only when you know how exactly to skip the rope.
