Due to the pandemic, the quarantine period is an excellent opportunity for many to start, continue or upgrade their fitness journey. Among all the different types of exercise, skipping rope has become one of the most popular options, mainly for the following reasons: It brings us back to the fun times of childhood jumping rope with friends; it's a great cardio workout you can do in 10 minutes; it can be done with just one jump rope!
If you're ready to jump rope, here's what you need to know about jumping rope.
Cardiovascular exercise is very important, especially when we hardly do any physical activity at home. While cardio is generally considered a great activity for burning fat and losing weight, it actually brings many more benefits. It helps strengthen the heart and reduces the risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, and it also helps boost the immune system. Since we're stuck at home all the time, skipping rope can help lift your mood, lower your stress levels, and even help you get a good night's sleep.
Walking, running, and biking outside are risky during the pandemic, but expensive if you're buying a home treadmill, so your best cardio option is jumping rope. Jumping rope only requires two things: enough space and a jump rope. And a jump rope is also very cheap, which allows you to exercise well without spending a lot of money.
If you're a beginner in exercise, it's a good idea to use a rubber pad under you when jumping rope. This will give your ankles and joints extra cushioning compared to harder surfaces like concrete or wood. Don't jump rope with bare feet. To protect yourself from injury, wear appropriate sneakers when jumping rope.
Stretching before and after jumping rope is just as important, as it reduces the risk of injury. Always start with a dynamic warm-up and end with a few stretches.
Of course rest is also important. If you're a beginner, don't force yourself to jump rope every day. You need to maintain regular and easy exercise according to your physical condition, so that you can achieve the best exercise effect.
