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.
