    Jump rope vs Running

    I heard that skipping is just as effective as running when it comes to losing fat, any truth in this?

    I'm just trying to get this clear, your title says jump rope, but your post says skipping.

    So, which one are you asking about?

    Jumping rope is one of the most efficient methods of cardio training. Jumping rope for 10 minutes at a moderate pace is the equivalent to running one mile in 12 minutes, cycling 2 miles in six minutes, swimming a quarter mile in 12 minutes, two sets of tennis or playing an 18-hole golf course.

    Depends on your goals. I like to alternate both because I do karate. Jumping rope is a bit more of a challege I think though with running you can end up just crusing along where jumping rope you have to keep jumping every rotation or else you trip!
    "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers -- by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever"

    this just reminded me to go buy a kipping rope... I just have this nagging feeling in my head that my chest is really going to hurt from skipping

    That really depends on how well you can jump rope haha If you can only jump a few times in a row, that'll be pretty much entirely anaerobic, but good plyometric training I guess. If you can jumprope continuously for about 20 minutes, then you can compare it to running. Running is aerbic endurance training though. Since they're two different types of training it's really better to see how they fit with your goals (specificity!).

    Thanks for the replies guys, yeah I can jump rope/skip. Can do 100+ easy without tripping up

    Should it be treated the same as running as in doing it between 40 - 55 minutes?

    Thumbs up Jump Rope is harder...

    I ran 4 miles for 42 mins and I did 3 sets of Jump Rope for 4 mins at a time. I was more tired from the jump rope than the running. So, I would say using the jump rope is harder and less strain on the body.

    Skipping, if done properly ala Mike Tyson style, is incredibly intense cardio workout, in fact it only becomes cardio after you develop significant skill in it. To skip for 20 minutes non-stop is a considerable achievement. Personally, I (Who used to be into running) can run for miles and miles, obviously not sprint though. When it comes to skipping, I hit my max around 10 minutes straight, and I consider this to be very good :/

    Generally speaking, interval training of around 2-3 minutes, rest a minute, and carry on etc. are best with skipping.

    that guy is godly.

    Skip for a min, box for 2 sounds good cuz with boxing you have more control over intensity.

    Skipping as i know is just killer.

    I have always felt as if the more movement out of our body the better. Ex: When sprinting you are basically using all of your muscles as compared to skipping (or jumping rope) where ou are bouncing up and down. Any method you choose to keep in shape is a good method. I once knew a guy who incorporated cart wheels into his regimen. He was jacked.

    Agreed, not too many people can do that.

    I hit my foot about once or twice every five minutes which is great improvement than when I started. I'm also trying to throw in the crossing, and double-unders, and sprinting which is still pretty slow into the whole mix.

    id say skipping much better. (skipping like a boxer, not a 6 year old girl) - also skipping helps your balance and also hits abs, arms, CALFS, etc
    Long way to go... will get there though!

    I just started jump roping since my local gold's put in a boxing room and I love it... speed it up, slow it down, switch legs, go forward, move backward, it's all good. I was able to cross over for the first time yesterday after the millions of welts on my shins

    I'd say skipping you become very accustomed to it if you just skip normally.

    I've boxed and thai boxed for years and I could skip for hours, you have to vary the intensity, and try doing cross overs and by your side, then try doing them at a fast speed, you'll reach a point where you have to do this to feel some sort of burnout

    I agree with nForced... I find skipping easier than running, but I'm not really known as the most efficient runner, lol.
