JUMP ROPE VS RUNNING FOR FAT LOSS | 7 Reasons Why Jump Rope May Be Better For Fat Loss

Jump rope vs running. Both are great for cardio...but which is better for fat loss? Learn 7 reasons why you may want to consider jumping rope in your next cardio workout session. 

1. High Calorie Burn - Both jump rope and running are great for torching calories & fat burning. But if you're a slow runner & you're intensity is higher while jumping ropes, you'll burn more calories with jrope.

2. Impact - Treadmill and road running are extremely high impact on the knees, back & joints. Because we JR on our toes, it's automatically less impact on our bodies. 

3. Fun Factor - There's only 1 way to run & dozens to JR. We incorporate fat burning cardio drills like JR and dozens more in our Max's Best Bootcamp workouts. Come try a session with us!

4. Environment - Weather can hamper your outdoor running & we know how bad treadmill work is. JR is more portable, so it's on rain or shine, in even a small space.

5. Time Efficient - Time is our most precious asset, so if we can reap higher fat loss in a shorter time, it's a no brainer. Jump rope is more effective at moderate to higher intensities.

6. Improves Core & Posture - You can run with bad posture, but you can skip rope with it. JR trains our body to stay more upright & is more demanding on our core.

7. Makes You Smarter - Yep, studies show that because JR incorporates all the muscles in our body & left and right brain functions, it will actually make you smarter. 

So to answer the debate of jump rope vs running for fat loss, JR wins! What do you think? Do you love running or JR?

ARE DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS REALLY WORTH IT?

Don't bother with these!

Go into any grocery store these days & you'll find isles of them. This particular photo is from Costco the other day.

Do we really need all of these supplements? Do you honestly believe that they're better than what we get from real food? We'd say absolutely not. The fact is, it's human nature to want a quick fix. However, until you are 100 percent honest with yourself, that you're eating a clean diet, there's little to no benefit from any of them. Period. Just eat real food!

The problem is, there's so many people - even well know celebrities - who will say that they too a certain supplement/pill & they lost weight fast. Or that it was a miracle cure for what ailed them. The bottom line is that there's BIG money in supplements. It's not about health at all...it's about the dolla bills y'all! If you want to take control body, to perform at optimum health, let us create a proper meal plan for you. We don't believe in fad diets & get our clients awesome results by showing them exactly what to eat & how to exercise to reach their goals.
